This pledge will be a simple set of guidelines anyone can commit to. It will provide both tangible actions that these people can take, and guidelines or principles to hold themselves to. It will have the potential to inspire and motivate people to take action. It will also feed into and encourage people to take part in the activities facilitated by YAAL. It will be a commitment to principles and action. It will bring people into a sense of involvement and being a part of YAAL without them having to do much of anything really. Perhaps I will allow access to a blog and craft tips if folks take the pledge? Its commitments and principles will be applicable in one's internal experience, in their interpersonal/social relations, and in their civic relations. That is, it will speak to both their personal experience of everyday life and to a broader sense of a just and humane society and world.
The pledge will relate to engaging the creative potential of everyday life. It will help shift ones perception of creative expression from a realm of art as cultural product separate from everyday life, to creative expression as a part of daily life.
