ALIVE in the UNIVERSE explores our own emotional explanation of the universe through arts and ideas. Through it, we empower our unique creativity, and transform it into something to benefit humanity.
We do this through our livelihoods, our lifestyles and through art. ALDEBURGH IDEAS presents ALIVE in the UNIVERSE at the Venice Biennale 2019 and invites all of us to express how it feels to be alive in the universe using 1 minute art-film, haiku, or other poetry.
ALIVE in the UNIVERSE is a global network of people who encourage human creativity; for the creative human is the flourishing human. Flourishing humans make a flourishing world. Its pulse is our tiny Lookout tower on Aldeburgh beach. Come and visit us.
"ALIVE in the UNIVERSE empowers our unique creativity.
Like so many people, I had always assumed creativity meant artistic creativity, especially as I have always been so passionately involved in the visual arts. Then when I bought a ‘tiny art temple’ on the beach in Aldeburgh I began to become interested in the phenomenon of creativity and to delve deeply into its mystery.
I discovered that creativity is not restricted to the arts – it is of fundamental importance to all human life. It touches each of us every moment of our lives.
Poverty is not lack of money, it is not lack of aspiration, it is lack of possibility. Creative intelligence is what makes our creativity possible."
