IN 2019 I WAS THINKING ABOUT how I could better explain my deeply held belief that art and creativity were central to creating social and political change. 

This effort began as a long essay, which I eventually scrapped.

I ended up taking a simpler route: quotes from well-known people relating to the significance of art in society, government, politics.

The quotes were grouped into five categories, or, “five political problems that art helps us solve.”
In this way I hoped to invite readers to form their own conclusions.

I’m going to upload a PDF download soon.
