This lecture about the work of Inspiring Change was held by our founder on EMAG – European Mensa’s Annual Gathering in Belgrade 2018.
Throughout human history, artists were the ones to inspire changes, development, and progress in every aspect of existence. Nowadays the audience for arts seems to be mainly artists themselves, their original role in society has drifted and art isn’t accessible or intended for the wider community.
The question is how to spread artistic circles for non-artists and encourage artists to use their creativity in a wider framework. At the beginning of the century marked with an overflow of content, intense distractions, and global opinions, bringing people together, under a mission of bringing positive changes, becomes a necessity.
