The Jada Global Mission 2021: Legitimizing Optimism

JadaTalks Presents: The Art of Digital LandscapingCREATIVITY, RESILIENCE, and VISION can determine how quickly a society will recover from a crisis. Such qualities are inherent to the artistic condition, thus the reason why the Jada Art Movement defends the creative worth! The strength of the Jada Art Movement is in our clinging to a pragmatic idealism and informed naïveté, which contrasts and clashes with the staleness and lackluster Modus Operandi of the current Arts and Culture Establishment.
