” Arts and music play a very important role in societal structure and in the lives of people and all creatures. Â I dedicate a large portion of my artistic endeavors to the inquiry of re-connection, with people, with the planet, with ourselves. I want to play music and create theater that affects people, that catalyzes positive change and contributes to healing. This planet and its inhabitants need a lot of healing and as far as I can tell, now is the time to get creative with that process. I think that creative arts are our most potent tool for re-connection, realization and the creation of Â desired sustainable culture.” Â – Ash Devine
