Why we need imagination, beauty and play in our current world" 

Online Zoom Lecture incl. Recording | By Merlijn Twaalfhoven "The Artist Mindset. The current challenges of our society are overwhelming. We look to scientists, politicians, economists or technological entrepreneurs for solutions, but they don’t seem capable to deliver the large changes that are needed to protect the living planet. 

Is there a unifying narrative that can give us direction? Where can we find guidance through times of uncertainty?  Merlijn Twaalfhoven, author of the book “It’s up to us” (Het is aan ons) developed the notion of the artist mindset as a practical way to navigate our time. 

He shows how artists, thinkers and philosophers through the ages could help us to slow down, sharpen our perception, create space for play and experiment and help us see the essence that is beneath the appearance of things. Book your ticket here
