Artists have a major role to play in shaping social movements because they have the power and creativity to communicate the important messages of our time.
Whether through music, visual art, spoken word, or other forms of creative expression, artists have the capacity to inspire change and bring attention to important issues. They have the ability to engage people on an emotional level, which can be more impactful than simply presenting the facts, and in turn galvanize people into action.
Artists have the great skill of transmitting the feeling of our aspirations for a better future.
While many artists may not consider their work political, any creative expression rooted in care for the space in which we inhabit is
a political act.
Dysfunction in our political society, and its appalling consequences, is calling millions to realize that individuals and groups independent from the existing two-parties must rise into civic stewardship.
With 50%+ Americans declaring their Independence, a United Independent Movement has the ability to transform our nation and drive critical upgrades to the quality of our democracy and the trustworthiness of our leaders.

The upcoming Independent National Convention (INC’23) is inviting Independent leaders into a higher degree of relatedness, shared-vision and coordinated joint-action going forward.
When people declare their own independence, and commit to thinking, speaking and acting according to their own conscience, they rise above the hyper-polarization of Left/Right partisan politics.
DPAK Future is an Artist of the Rise who will be presenting the United Independent Anthem at INC ‘23 Austin.
Other artists will be performing on the main stage and side stages at various times throughout the convention.
The INC will also be hosting a focused Artist of the Rise panel conversation, followed by an Artists of the Rise outdoor afternoon jam session.

Just as MEDIA passes are given to to media correspondents to cover the event, the INC will be issuing ARTIST passes for artists who want to learn, observe andparticipate in this political activation, allowing their experiences to inform the creation of new art.
As artists create songs, film, spoken word and visual dimensions of the United Independent Movement, it brings the movement to life, animating the message through creative expression. This is the natural output of an artistic movement leader, creative spokesperson and Artist of the Rise.
