Arts & Culture
In 200 BCE, Patanjali the Indian author, mystic, and
philosopher had this to say about being inspired:
“When you are inspired by some great purpose or extraordinary project all of your thoughts break their bonds, your mind transcends 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.
