Antara Project – Annemarie Borg: under the patronage of Satish Kumar, (editor of Resurgence and Ecologist magazines).
Antara means from the heart. The Antara Project relies on communication.
The role of the artist has always been to express what is naturally meaningful even if this is at times uncomfortable or unpopular. Art, Music, Creativity speak a language that transcends prejudices and taboos, nourishes the soul, questions, appeals to the imagination, to the spirit and the heart, it is a language that motivates and provokes.
And it is not just what the artist’s creative work triggers off or can reflect but also what it can bring.
I founded this project because of my strong conviction that creativity, artistic expression and exploring our talents gives us strength and increased self esteem.
We connect or reconnect with ourselves and the world around us. We become more able to face the challenges of our times.
creativity – self esteem – inner strength – focus – courage – commitment – empowers us to tackle change.
And it is in all of us to change, to be stationary is not an option.
In that ideal stillness and peace we seek, lies an inevitable motion.
