"White" by Eoghan Dillon

If we're going to be called "Dancing Monkeys" let's beat our damn chests and remind anyone who looks down on us that humanity came from us, it evolved and continues to evolve because of us.

I'm asking every artists and anyone with a taste for the arts to create more than ever this year. Let's collaborate and make beautiful pieces of art. Let's throw paint at each other and enjoy the beauty of this world, not just climb ladders and push past each other for selfish career goals.Let's build and cultivate each other without judgement, because that's what the world and our community needs right now; Visceral, tangible, judgement-free collaboration and creation.Inspire, don't contain.

The world needs more dancing monkeys.
