We are facing a convergence of crises, but I want to challenge us all to aim higher than just riding out the storm….It’s time for a paradigm shift, and that will take four critical realignments: renewing our faith in truth, recognising that we all have equal worth, safeguarding the future and believing in our ability to remake the world as we wish it could be, as we know it can be.

Arts and culture are the portal to expanding our collective imaginative capacity…imagining not just better futures but alternatives, other ways of being and living.… When we’re talking about hard power issues, security and so forth, arts and culture has something to say there too. Because if we approach those issues without a sense of hopeful imagination, well, we’re destined to doom ourselves. There is an enormous realm of possibility that that kind of human connectivity can create.

Every moment, we have an opportunity to get it right. Let us meet our opportunity together.
