Artists as Human Beings should use our voices to help create a better world.  But we must also be the leaders of our own Destiny.  We live in a society that mistreats Artists in ways not dissimilar to how women are treated. Too often we are either idolized or disregarded.  Society pimps out the work of the musician, artist as decoration or for a good time.  Our role as Truth Tellers (not in a literal sense but in a profound inspirational sense) is discouraged.  In this first iteration of the FreeJazz Convention, we come together to bring our real value and our real needs to the eyes and ears of our larger community. By standing together, we can begin to take the steps that are necessary to have our most powerful art flourish so that all will benefit. We learn from the past. We learn from the present. We create the future.  – Patricia Nicholson Parker
