'The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible' Toni Cade Bambarayou

Sometimes it's easy to get a bit bogged down when you're trying to make this world a better place.

But then something catches your eye and makes you smile. Makes you wonder about all that this world could be.

Hope comes in the most surprising places.

This week it has been inspiring to see artists taking to the streets in Kabul and challenging Afgans to think differently about the political and social situation. Graffiti art has been used to challenge the status quo and paint a new picture of life across the city.

It is easy to forget the powerful and beautiful impact that art and music can have on the way we think and how we see our world.

One of the things that makes the SPEAK Network so special is that it is full of artists and musicians across the country who are challenging the ways of this world through creative expression.

Toni Cade Cambarayou once said that 'it is the role of the artist to make the revolution irresistible'. Will you help make SPEAKs revolution of the heart irresistible?
