On September 12, Charles Leadbeater opened the Incubate festival week with a lecture on social innovation and the role the arts can play in this process. What’s the role of a changing arts practice in a changing society? Watch Charles Leadbeater’s innovation lecture above.
Charles Leadbeater is a leading authority on innovation and creativity. He is Tony Blair’s favorite corporate thinker. He has advised companies, cities and governments on innovation strategy and drew on that experience in writing his latest book We-think: the power of mass creativity. This book charts the rise of mass, participative approaches to innovation from science and open source software, to computer games and political campaigning.
After Charles’ keynote lecture, a panel of experts from the fields of arts, economy and politics took place. The panelists in the discussion were Wim van de Donk, Dick Rijken, Bas van Heur and Wout Withagen. Roy van Dalm moderated the panel. Watch the panel discussion below.
