I see art and creativity as absolutely central to winning and sustaining people. This is hard work, and people need to be fed as full human beings not just with food, but their spirits need to be fed as well. Art keeps people in movements because it gives us moments of beauty, release and community. Naomi Klein
Culture gives space to articulate our place and survival in the web of life.
Culture renews and transforms
The arts have a tradition of sparking cultural change and ‘speaking differently’: disrupting the status quo and creating emergent space for new ideas to engage people at an imaginative level.
Culture builds capacities for action
Participation is key too many of today’s cultural and arts practices; building creative skills, lost crafts, and learning through doing and engaging.
Culture lets us learn
Being bold, active players in this great reimagining is why and how culture matters.
