As any arts graduate knows, careers advisors and recruitment companies have little to offer if what you want to do is further your artistic interests and make a living at the same time. Sadly, many national publications see young, talented writers, artists and designers as fair game for slave labour. At the LIP we look at things differently.
There are many ways in which we humans try to define ourselves, many tools which we use to fashion ourselves an identity; the way in which we dress, the people we befriend, the religious and the political views to which we adhere.
There are different ways of seeing things. Different cultures read in different ways, as any propagandist worth his salt can tell you.
These are uneasy times….
We are at our best when we work together. New ideas in art, culture and politics are more likely to be forged in a collaborative environment.
