For many people, art only serves as a source of entertainment. However, great art goes beyond the superficial and often serves an educational, spiritual or political purpose, reimagining life as we know it. Aaron Ableman is a rising star in music and media who uses his craft to deliver such meaningful projects into the global cultural marketplace. With the world facing an interlocking global crisis of health, climate and economy, mental health problems have become more dire than ever, and Aaron has been working hard to address this issue through the arts.
Aaron Ableman is an award-winning United Nations “artivist” (a play on artist and activist) who has dedicated his life to serving children and the planet. He developed his passionate character growing up under the guidance of a public healthcare nurse and a farmer who doubled as an author. Aaron would later study with indigenous elders and notable spiritual leaders, including the fourteenth Dalai Lama. Finally, he would take his experience to the pages, penning multiple books like the Augmented Reality series, Pacha’s Pajamas, which won 15+ awards. Aaron’s life and works have been published and celebrated on outlets like HBO, LA Times, CNN, NY Times, and MTV.
Apart from writing, Aaron is also musically gifted, and he’s had the opportunity to collaborate with some of the most innovative artists and luminaries in the generation like U2, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, KRS One and Xiuhtezcatl, to name a few. Aaron would later pursue music on a broader scale, becoming a United Nations award-winning artist and acclaimed performing artist and songwriter.
Regardless of his endeavors, Aaron Ableman strives to use his craft as a vehicle to positively impact the world and address critical issues in the world. His works have earned him a reputation of being a true visionary in children’s entertainment and education, having worked with Michelle Obama’s Turnaround Arts White House and Kennedy Center model education initiative. However, as the world continues to struggle through devastating news cycles, the equal devastation of mental health is wreaking havoc everywhere. As a result, Aaron took up the responsibility to develop a brand to address this issue for parents and families, especially after recently becoming a father.
Creating an arts-based mental/environmental health initiative called Welcome to Earth, Aaron is bringing together an acclaimed book, an NFT collection, and a music album that features influential artists. Welcome to Earth was created first as 365 letters & meditations to his daughter written everyday of her 1st year, but ultimately, it has evolved to an edutainment brand reaching households across the globe. On August 31st, 2021, Aaron will release the first in a series of music SINGLES on all streaming platforms. Already among the top 100 listed songs on the critic’s choice platform, SHAREPRO.com, Aaron’s first song Popcorn Lemonade has received rave reviews.
He was inspired to produce this music from the fundamental belief that children and parents will forever yearn for more ways to connect or share in joyful engagement together, especially in challenging times. With his brand and impact growing like the millions of children he inspires everyday, Aaron Ableman is someone to look out for, follow and support.
