Reach the Heart of a Perspective
Topic: Requests for Culture


Explore matters of importance

Art should encourage depth of understanding and emotion. It should make us think about matters of lasting and real importance. It should present perspectives and possibilities we are not aware of. It should question assumptions and certainties.

Expand the horizons of one's place and time. Teach about past eras and new ideas. Address the real situation and real needs of people.
Empathize with those who are different or oppressed. Heal, rather than divide.

How to Explore a Perspective
Relax, focus. Take a step back and look at the Perspective from all sides. Now, zero in at the center!
 
What is the Bias?
What assumptions does it make? Whose interests does it serve?

What is your Personal Experience?
How does it make you feel? How do your experiences, privileges, and personal interests affect your understanding of it?
Now, enter the heart
▶ Say something good about what you disagree with, even if there are flaws.
▶ Find causes, not symptoms. Ask what lies at the root.
▶ Have respect for people with different views, insights, and priorities!

Examine the consequences of suffering and violence

Never portray violence, dysfunction, cruelty or misery as an end in itself. When portraying the vile, show how it is a distortion of the good, and with the intent of finding a resolution to it.
Find a resolution or suggest responses to dysfunctional behavior. Look for the human and spiritual impact. Explore long-term and deeper effects.

Do not glorify destruction or misery. Violence or degradation should not be presented for thrill only. Do not worship vanity, greed or the ego. Do not reinforce stereotypes. Do not make the user feel alone, envious or depressed. Do not be destructive to the human psyche.

Aim to improve life and the community. Engage the imagination.

Challenge the status quo. Engage the imagination. Strive to understand what is a good person and a good society. Lift, inspire and transform.
The goal of culture should be not beauty but goodness. It should address our need for meaning and hope. It should see people as ends in themselves and support their well-being. It should place soul at the center of our concerns.


Engage the imagination and our capacity for exultation and celebration. Overcome anonymity. Create relationship and community. Be aware of our shared humanity. Stand for integrity, truth, and decency Make one feel recognized. Make the world more human.
Fight the culture of the idolization of youth. Understand the importance of growing old.
