I’m with those who hope for a new renaissance – including and inviting people to make their contribution towards a future which will see an increasing flow of knowledge and skills as gifts.
The really exciting things will happen when the barriers come down between communities and organisations, in the creative synthesis and messiness of connectedness, regardless of field, age, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, politics, geography, and a whole lot more.
Almost forty years ago, Charles Mellis wrote about how ‘creative new vehicles seldom originate within the establishment – particularly in times of great change’.* If Mellis is right then it makes no sense to be closed to what others know and are willing to share.
Find a party, bring your passion and skill – the future awaits.
