"Art shapes the policy/message itself": DIEM25's Voice

Yet more good signs of politics recognising the power of arts and culture, to enrich and complexify the way we think about policy.  The European reform organisation DIEM25 has launched a new "art platform" - Voice. Read the blurb:

For us, art plays an integral role in determining not only the means (propagation) but also the ends of our movement; not only the medium for conveying the policy/message but also for shaping the policy/message itself. DiEM Voice aims to facilitates a democratic dialogue between people-participants across Europe, using art.

Art titan Brian Eno has been working with DIEM's founder Yanis Varoufakis on the synergy of politics and art - hear this discussion at the Dalkey Book Festival.
