Possibilities of Transformation

So the arts are showing us […] the possibilities of transformation. I think it’s one of the great contributions of the arts, that they can show us possibilities. They can show us how things could be, even in this world.

One thought on “Possibilities of Transformation

  1. This quote reminds me of another. For me, they go beautifully together:

    “We swim in the ecosystem of imagined actions. We do have a responsibility to that power. We do have a choice between saving lives, or destroying lives.

    If we do not teach our children, and ourselves, that what we imagine, and how we design the world, can make a difference, the culture of cynicism will do that for us. If we do not take the initiative to love our neighbors by imagining better neighborhoods and cities, despair will take the imaginations of their children and turn them into destructive forces.”

    –Makoto Fujimura from Refractions: A Journey of Faith, Art, and Culture
