Sector 3: Art & Culture

The Art & Culture Sector focuses on music, theater, video, photography, fine and folk art, dance, sculpture, and literature. It is the “stuff” dreams are made of and a primary outlet for the evolutionary impulse which infuses the Universe. Usually, art is a by-product of culture – the environmental influence that inspires artists. Yet, in this age of global communication, artists may be impressed and aroused by ideas generated on the other side of the Earth … and beyond. Consequently, this Sector is a true barometer and precursor of what we will manifest together as we build the New World.
