American Creativity At Risk: Restoring Creativity as a Priority in Public Policy, Cultural Philanthropy, and Education

$0.00
Price: $0.00

What is the nature of human creativity, and how do we foster pure research and innovation in all sectors of our society and culture?

Organized by the Alliance of Artists Communities and hosted by Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design, the “American Creativity At Risk” symposium explored these questions, taking artists’ communities as a model and a metaphor. The symposium resulted in a call to action addressing the challenges and opportunities of restoring creativity as a priority in public policy, cultural philanthropy, and education. Symposium speakers and panelists included Robert MacNeil, Lewis Hyde, Brendan Gill, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Mary Schmidt Campbell, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Ellen Winner, David Liddle, Mary Catherine Bateson, Ned Hall, and Stewart Brand, among others. The book is a narrative report of the proceedings. Published by Alliance of Artists Communities, 1997, 40 pages, electronic version only.
