Professional Artists Who Raise our Collective Consciousness

THIS SECTION IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION

 

 

These artists raise consciousness about how we live.  Rather than offering answers, they encourage viewers to reflect on our world and on the issues of our time.  Big Picture Foundation kids are in the process of developing interview questions.  The kids will post short video clips of themselves asking questions.  Artists who feel inspired to help will have the chance to answer the questions.
