Each year the artists who work with the network pick a theme. It is always

one of great importance to the people and concentrates in many ways their

gravest concerns as well as their most courageous resistance. This year, we

have chosen to make our music, poetry and art against the war now being waged

in our name around the world and at home. ArtSpeaks 2002 is the first major

concert against the war. ArtSpeaks 2002 is our fifth concert and may be our

most important yet.

We are told that this is a war with no end and no boundaries. We are expected

to support the rounding up of thousands because of their nationality or

religious beliefs. We are expected to go along with the silencing of those

who dissent. And in every corner of society, blind patriotism justifies the

rapid growth of the politics of intolerance, cruelty and punishment. They are

stealing the very air that we breathe. ArtSpeaks is about changing the


Our artistic collaboration creates a whole different vision. As the late

great jazz pianist Horace Tapscott put it, in times of great social upheaval

and change art is "ammunition for the head" - it tears down boundaries of

what is thinkable, it clears new pathways, poses profound questions, and

carves out critical space in a society in desperate need of change.

Please join us.
