Cultural Agents

Founded at Harvard University

Arts and Humanities in Civic Engagement 

 

Cultural Agents is a platform for academics, artists, community leaders, and active citizens in general. It is an invitation to revive a long humanistic tradition that combines arts and research in the service of civic development.
Change requires imagination, thinking like an artist, so we learn from exemplary creative agents and share lessons that can challenge stale paradigms with artful alternatives. The purpose is both intellectual and social. Thinking and doing go together.
