Can Artists Save The World?

A blog posted on the Huffington Post:


Can Artists Save The World?
by Julia Moulden

A photograph of me circa 1977 hangs over my desk. It was taken by Toni Beatty, an American photographer I met when we shared adjoining villas and a garden in Tepotzlan, Mexico.

"Why didn't you include artists in your book?" she wrote in an email after reading We Are the New Radicals. My reply was honest -- it hadn't occurred to me. But, as you might imagine, I've been collecting examples ever since, and will write about arts and social change soon.
