To Envisage is to conceive, contemplate, to foresee, predict and anticipate, and in the case of the collection of musicians and works gathered here, to work towards, to attempt, to call forth.
What are we envisaging and to what end do we create together? Societies and communities reverberating with justice and kindness, inclusion and respect for all, care for the hurting, sick and marginalized and for the natural world. Art that echoes, illuminates and stimulates the best thoughts and actions of humanity and serves the causes of peace and restoration.
