Alex the Artist – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

Alex the Artist

Excerpt from press release:

What happens when we stop valuing artists? A shy young girl who feels lost in the world discovers a magical secret that
reveals her true purpose in life. As Alex sets out on a quest to stand up to the evil King and bring freedom back to all the
artists in the land she realizes the true power of her voice and value of her creativity.
Alex The Artist aims to inspire and remind the younger generation that everyone has a voice and the potential to
change the world: Empathy and creativity trump hate and fear every single time.
