    “Is it possible that creativity in arts organisations not be limited to the gallery space?”

    Anne Bertrand has been flirting with this question for as many years as I have known her. When we first met almost a decade ago, she was asking it from a place of frustration. She had spent several years working for an artist-run organization and was feeling quite disheartened as a result. How can it be, she would say to me in exasperation, that […]

    I have to admit, my yearning for control often outweighs my yearning for a better world.
