Can Creativity change the World? Exhibition open to the public

At its heart, Creating Change will feature a week-long exhibition that explores the concrete and positive impact creativity can have around the world. The exhibition, entitled Can Creativity Change the World? is an interactive journey through various projects of lettera27 implemented in the last ten years. Visitors are invited to take part by sharing their opinions on the topic, and can also browse through a selection of Detour notebooks, created by renowned artists such as Spike Jonze, Antonio Marras and Ross Lovegrove, a selection of notebooks created during the AtWork initiative as well as myDetour project notebooks. All of them have been donated to lettera27 and now form part of the foundation’s permanent collection.

Can Creativity change the World? Interview and Round Table Discussion

This debate aims to get to the heart of the question Can Creativity Change the World? by exploring the ways in which education and literacy can lead to concrete and positive social change.

As well as officially opening the exhibition of the same name to the public, this round table discussion provides a wider context for the week-long Creating Change event. The role of creativity in bringing about social change will first be discussed by international journalist, Eliza Anyangwe (The Guardian, CNN), and Maria Sebregondi, the Moleskine Foundation President. The issue will then be examined further by an international panel of change-leaders including Heba Y. Amin, a visual artist, researcher and lecturer; Nigel Richard, director at Global Teachers Institute; and Lorenzo Newman, author and co-founder of Learn More. It will be followed by the on- stage intervention by our advisor and one of the most influential curators, intellectuals and writers of the African continent Simon Njami interviewed by the Moleskine Foundation COO Adama Sanneh.
