August 2012 a.r.t. Blog:
a.r.t. sends condolences to the families and friends affected by the recent shooting in our nearby neighborhood of Oak Creek, Wisconsin. To the entire Sikh community, we send you thoughts and prayers.
We are not experts on psychology or hate crimes. We do not wish for this month’s blog to be a soapbox regarding gun control. But we can say with confidence that the arts help us teach our youth about other cultures.
National, statewide, and local politicians, school board members, and administrators must take a stance and provide arts opportunities for all youth in all of our educational environments.
Dance and love,
Christina M. Ratatori, a.r.t. founding director
