Prompt from John:
Please spend a little time alone to consider the following question, and jot down any responses that come to mind. Do not share results until we meet. There are no wrong answers. There is no expectation as to how many responses you generate. Enjoy.

If someone were to ask you …

“How do you know art can change the world?”

… how would you answer them, in six words?

Six words. Not five. Not seven. It may be a six-word phrase or two three-word phrases. Or a two- and a four-word phrase. Or six words. You get the picture. Contractions come in handy. So do hyphens and slashes. No grading on punctuation or grammar. Enjoy.
