The 53rd National Flute Association Convention in Atlanta will underscore the theme of unity and universal oneness.
The concept of oneness, where “all is one and one is all,” has been taught and explored across many different cultures and practiced over thousands of years; yet it remains a principle with which humanity seems to struggle daily.
The idea suggests that everything in the universe is interconnected, and there is no separation between anything. What is done to one affects the whole. We are One, representing a single life expressed in countless diverse ways.
We invite proposals that explore the notion of unity and universal oneness. We encourage you to support this theme by sharing creative projects that highlight the bridging and merging of cultures, systems of thoughts, beliefs, languages, musical genres, music styles, flutes of all kinds, and instruments. We are interested in experiences that reflect efforts toward universal unity and speak about collaboration; interconnectedness; service for the betterment of our communities; as well as values such as self-forgetfulness, self-surrendering, self-sacrifice, benevolence, love, compassion, justice, and peace.
It is often during times of extreme hardship, that virtue and nobility emerge within the human spirit. Let us harness the power and strength of our NFA flute community worldwide, to sow the seeds of peace by acknowledging our interconnected oneness. We are One. We are the NFA.
