There is no creativity without purpose. Aesthetic and craft are not purposeful and creative themselves.
Today more than ever we are needed to inform & inspire through creativity. To show how things should be. We have the calling, as human beings, to create purposefully.
While it is encouraging to see youth making things, the reality is that WITHOUT REAL-WORLD PURPOSE, CREATIVITY IS DEAD. We must make a departure from “class”, “felt pens”, and “hack-a-thons” that cannot serve our urgent societal needs.
