The Role of the Artist in Society (Cont.)

“For thousands of years the arts have been teaching people to think on their feet, to improvise on a changing theme in a structured way, and to make things without knowing the outcome, or desired end. Adaptation, flexibility and creativity – freedom balanced by form – integrating the head, hand and heart through discipline and imagination. These are the components of the creative processes that will be valuable and needed in the change-constant 21st century.”

– William Cleveland, Art in Other Places
