Artful Organisation Report

Cultivating artful ways of knowing in the world – dance, film-making, improvisation, music, poetry, photography, sculpture, storytelling, visual arts, writing – is essential if we are to imagine futures where we organise and structure our activities sustainably.

Instead, we need to develop a healthier blend of ways of knowing, working and being.
