Event Details

Creating a Culture of Possibility – an evening with renowned cultural theorist Arlene Goldbard.  Arlene’s two latest books: The Culture of Possibility: Art, Artists & The Future and The Wave—offer an encompassing view of this extraordinary moment in human history and our own future choices about allowing art to guide us to a sustainable and peaceful world.  

This evening will be a warm up discussion to our series Facilitating Strategic Disruption – a Town Hall Workshop & Art Challenge (FSD) coming  in November and December at the Bowery Poetry Club.  Arlene will explain her new model for paradigm-shift thinking and then apply it to the question at hand for our first FSD discussion - how to create a culture of possibility around renewable energy issues, where so many people feel daunted by the scope of the problem, the power of the opposition and the fear that is being generated.

"By showing us that culture is the crucible in which we forge our laws and our government as well as our values and families, she restores our power as unique individuals and as creative communities. The idea that all change comes from the top is the propaganda of those who wish it were true. This book encourages us to take back our power through unique and communal creativity." —Gloria Steinem

 Mission: To strengthen art and culture’s central role in civic life and enhance cultural, community and environmental sustainability.  Our project-based  research has the following goals:

 1. Develop an accurate and deep, but easily transmittable understanding of  how arts and culture ecosystems work and what they need in order to thrive

2. Create better metrics to measure arts and culture’s economic and social impacts and their role in creating and maintaining resilient societies

3. Explore how arts and culture enhance cross-sector projects that create socially and environmentally sustainable practices and awareness
