Art & Culture - The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step.
This is what Patanjali had to say about being inspired, around 200 BCE:
"When you are inspired by some great purpose or extraordinary
project all of your thoughts break their bonds,
your mind trancends limitations,
your consciousness expands in every direction,
and you find yourself in a new and wonderful world.
Dormant forces, faculties and talents come alive,
and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far
than you ever dreamed yourself to be."
Art expands a person, culture connects them to others. At Free State Projects we feel that a continued cultivation of
both is required to inspire South African society today so that our disparate parts can start to
create a more coherent whole. We seek to explore the use of art to achieve this and will showcase
the results on this page.
