The ubiquitous observation of our time is transformation: cultural, technological, social, political and economical. We are in the midst of unprecedented re-alignments and re-articulations of every aspect of our lives. There are people, institutions and communities across all disciplines and across the globe that are increasingly confronted by the need for new models of asking the extraordinarily complex questions of our time.
Arts Letters & Numbers is an emergent structure opening spaces within broad human and disciplinary geographies; spaces of participation, of communication, of reciprocity, for people and their works to listen to each other, to listen to the world.
Conceived as a Disciplinary Chora, Arts Letters & Numbers is a place of creative urgency and intensity of purpose, a place to create new linkages, new thought processes, new pathways of understanding that embody our best hopes and aspirations, a place where many elements come together to co-construct questions and works; of empathy, of ethics, of imagination that include our nuanced fragilities in our shared stories.
The transformations of our time contain great promises and great challenges; they call for considered stewardship and new spaces bringing together diverse voices, visions, forms of knowledge and expression, spaces to care for and strengthen the fibers of our social contract; to transform how we experience today into how we will experience tomorrow.
Arts Letters & Numbers is creating just such a space.
