In other words, our ultimate goal is not finding, filtering, fostering, preserving, and presenting cultural works, but delivering the human and social impacts that engagement with those works provide. It may sound like a semantic distinction but it’s a fundamental reshuffling of how most arts managers align their resources. In this view, a compelling arts experience is not the end of our efforts, but the means by which our true product is produced. I encourage everyone to ask themselves: Do you present art? Or do you curate human impact through the arts?
