Freak Flag Activism
Artistic Self Expression is no longer a decadence. It is now critical activism.
As a cultural ice age takes its grip - we must persevere. We must keep the fires going. We are the seed banks of culture.
We must maintain our humanity by expressing our creativity. It is our creative expression that makes us more than greedy, over-groomed monkeys.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." said Albert Einstein. So without a healthy culture of non-traditional thought, we are doomed to stagnate in our woes.
Making art has never been so important. Living artistically has never been more courageous. This talk will delve into why we must now shine brighter than ever and explore ways we can encourage and support our community.
We now live in a post-facts world. “News” is distortion, spin and manipulation. Never before has the pursuit of personal truth and been more important or treacherous. Halcyon will discuss the methods and risks of radical transparency as a tool for personal and cultural healing.
