Ideas Agora

Today we ask you to jam in a different way: you can open yourself a brand new discussion to share your ideas or join already open discussions below.

The focus:

We, the people of culture, let our fragmentation reduce our impact on society.
What is the first thing we need to do to reverse this trend? To become a "we"?

Arts make us human

I believe that 'the arts' are what made us human.

Art is all around us, creativity is what has made everything we own. I tell participants in workshops that everything they own see, buy, look at has been created and produced by artists .

If we want to change the perception of what it is to be 'an artist' we have to work towards teaching an understanding of how the creative brain has developed everything we take for granted within our 'built' environment.

Creativity is inspired by nature and without nature humans could not have become creative. We need nature to sustain us physically and mentally

The arts and nature are exploited for profit by a small numbers of rich people.

If we do not stop the rich and greedy exploiting our planet, our nature and our arts nothing much will matter in fifty years time. We wont be around to discuss the merits of 'the arts'

  • Are you stating that there art is no more important than the context in which it gets created and that working on the context is as necessary as providing space for the art within the context? Or would you propose to try to merge the spheres as to have one single sphere? How? How do you want to stop plutocracy?
    • We are all made from the same basic building blocks of life on this 'sphere' - earth. Water, DNA etc. I believe creativity is key to human development. I have no personal single power to stop plutocracy. I work with communities to enable people (who through educational and monetary inequality often do not have access to the arts) experience and participate in 'the arts'. Until creative opportunity and good education are free and available to every single citizen of the planet nothing will change. Inequality creates plutocracy.
