In my world I hear a lot about ‘the value of art’. More often than not it’s complaints about how ‘dancing monkeys’ are taking tax payer’s hard-earned cash from the pockets of teachers and hospitals. Or how some public artwork is a blight on an otherwise perfect landscape.
I’m not going to rant about any of that here. I’m just going to let you read the above, and make up your own mind about how we as a society choose to measure the value of creativity.
