How to be Hopeful #13

This week I had the absolute pleasure of speaking with the artist, musician, and poet Landry Butler from Nashville, one of the hubs of community and creativity in the beautiful American south.

We spoke about many things including how art and creativity can help hope to grow, the importance of people singing together, and how despite growing in America, hope is growing too,

“we have to push back with our own hope, the belief that we like to work together and build each other up, we can do that … still have the hope that we can do something positive”
