New Report Alert! Promoting Arts and Culture for Systemic Change

A new report from Salzburg Global Seminar, The Creative Power of the Arts: Reimagining Human and Planetary Flourishing looks at creative reforms in the target areas of climate, health, education, and justice. According to the announcement, "As the world confronts the compounded impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate crisis, and structural injustices, societies are bracing for a protracted and complex period of reassessment, reimagination, and restructuring. The culture and arts sector must be at the table and included in decision-making processes as societies seek to eschew a return to 'normal' and instead reimagine more creative pathways towards human and planetary flourishing."

This report is the result of Focus Groups - brought together in 2021 to examine the systemic relevance of the arts and culture sector for creative reforms in the four target areas of climate, health, education, and justice - as well as other gatherings. In sharing this report, "Salzburg Global Seminar invites others to engage in a similar process of constructive inquiry to reflect deeply on what is dividing us, what is keeping us from collaborating better, and how we can achieve transformative change together."
