Why We Need the Arts

My speech given at the 2019 UF COTA Graduation Ceremony

“There’s only us. There’s only this. Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other path, no other way. No day but today.”

“[Theatre] has an incredible capacity for illuminating the unseen, reshaping history, bringing out empathy and providing social commentary…theater can activate change, heal a bit of the horror, restore hope and give voice to the silent and unseen.”

“With enough imagination, everything is within our grasp.”
