What does art mean to you? What makes art important, and why? From 13th - 27th May we will be exploring questions around the importance of art and opening up the floor to you. This is your invitation to share your thoughts with Tate and the Khan Academy community and tell us what you think about art.
Post your thoughts, questions, and answers to the question “Why is art important?” in the Questions section below. Share a work of art that has special significance to you, or show us a creative work that you made. Tell us a story about art that made you feel, think, or see the world in a different way. Or just explain why, how, and for whom you think art is important. If you're on Twitter don't forget to share your thoughts with the #whyart hashtag.
Every comment and contribution will have the chance to be included in our grand wrap-up on May 28th, which will showcase some of the answers and ideas posted here. Contributions will be welcome beyond the 28th, but won't be included in the wrap-up.
Your moderator (Camille @ Tate) will be here to prompt, guide, and share throughout the two weeks. Anyone and everyone can participate, so don’t be shy!
