Cultural Creatives

How intriguing! A couple of days ago, in a playful mood, I posted a quiz that identified me as a Cultural Creative. Last night as I browsed through some blogs that I visit on a biweekly basis, I came across a post called “ARE YOU A CULTURAL CREATIVE?” at Robert Brady’s Pure Land Mountain.

Here I learn that there is an actual Cultural Creative organization. These movements include those focused on civil rights, the environment, womens rights, peace, jobs and social justice, gay and lesbian rights, alternative health care, spirituality, personal growth, and now, of course, stopping corporate globalization. All of those concerns are now converging into a strong concern for the whole planet.

Curiously, the words cultural and creative are given new meaning here. It’s interesting reading, offering a very positive world view, yet it’s strange that the authors mainly focus on Americans, while I believe these “cultural creatives” as labelled are everywhere. Do go read Brady’s post and the links and please let me know what you think!
