A Letter from London

In January 2007, Musagetes organized a café in London, hosted by Jude Kelly, founder of Metal Culture and Artistic Director of the South Bank Centre in London. The café brought together a group of prominent artist-creators from the UK and cultural thinkers from Europe, the UK and Canada. The participants included a choreographer, playwright, musician and songwriter, theatre director and producer, visual artist and filmmaker, stage designer, and multi-media artist.

The participants had in common an engagement philosophically and in their practice with extending them contribution the arts make to healthy democracies and creative communities. They have reflected the
essence of their conversation in this letter from London, with the intent of sharing their findings with other people involved in artistic quests at the intersection of social change.
