Does money kill creativity? – seminar at by:Larm

March 18, 2010

Press to go to video (Norwegian only)

During by:Larm we documented several seminars and discussions. Here is a 20 minute resume of the seminar on Public money – opium for the artists?

In an article in Aftenposten Georg Arnestad meant that the cultural policy for the past four years has focused exclusively on more money for everything, and for lacking vision. The newspaper followed up with writing an commentary saying, among other things, that some communities are living “a self-satisfied and self-protective life that might stagnate.”

Can too much support stifle creativity? Do we loose the visionary entrepreneurs with public support?
