I had a great visit to Austin, Texas, last week to talk with artists, arts managers, creatives, and other community members. Building on their cultural planning of the past years, they are working to forge a ”creative alliance” to advance the creative life (not just cultural) of the region.
Lots of great people doing extraordinary work. Lots of little mountains to climb to get where they hope to go. More on that later. But in the meanwhile, I’ve posted the slides and audio from my public presentation on ”Considering the Creative Ecology,” which worked to interweave some thoughts on complex ecosystems with the conversations I had heard and facilitated in town.
