TWEET OR EMAIL ME TO COLLABORATE: I am working on a new project proposal to define ‘artful leadership’. I want to work with the non-cultural, for-profit sectors. This follows my recent op-eds here and here, and musings since 09/2019. Within this I will design micro or symbolic systems that will also allow a re-distribution of power and/or funding especially for self-employed and early-career researcher-colleagues. This will draw further on my artistic and curatorial work since 2009 on running as a creative intervention. Age make some mellow, or sell out and swop to the other side of the political spectrum. Yet, others may become more troubled, grieved, ridden once again with a weltschermz or world-weariness that had weighted one when a teenager incandescent with injustice (not just by the obvious culprits but the disingenuous self-proclaimed ‘allies’). I have also been inspired by the radical yet witty work of my colleague the wonderful artist Cesar Cornejo, such as his Puno Museum of Contemporary Art.
I PROMISE THAT I WILL BE NICE. It will be fun.
