Is it really about the evidence? Argument, persuasion, and the power of ideas in cultural policy.
A must read article by @elebelfiore illustrating just how fragile "evidenced-based" policymaking is, & how argument & persuasion still lead decision-making.
Another inspiring and thought provoking day with @Superslowway for the @TextileBiennial in #Blackburn today.
Great exhibitions and so many lovely conversations with participants and visitors!

Fabulous first day @TextileBiennial with @Superslowway! Too many amazing moments. Here's just a few!
Yesterday was spent in mills, museums & a barn full of sleepy bats.
Incredibly expensive exploration of the #politicsofcloth & textile labour.
Today it's all about Blackburn. https://t.co/t6uRqDUxnF
"The categories the human brain creates to make sense of its surroundings are not...the “thing-in-itself”. They describe artefacts of our perceptions rather than the world.
Nature recognises no such divisions."
Our way of life devastates nature.
