Turnaround Arts New Orleans
Find out how Turnaround Arts is using immersive arts to change the fortunes of failing schools across the United StatesRead it here
The arts can change the fortunes of cities and countries, but in the end, their power is always human. They give expression to our loves, lives, hopes and fears – our history, our dreams, our culture. ‘Culture’ will have different meanings in different contexts; much as we find strength in what binds us together, so we can be inspired by our difference.
Over the next few weeks, Create will be publishing essays reflecting upon people, places and culture; how our understanding of culture, and the work we do with it, can reflect the world around us more widely and deeply, and help change life for the better.
