Why do we need a new culture of curiosity? What if we enable everyone to ask questions, and be heard? Who’s shaping our collective futures? How can we navigate uncertainty? Where’s the best place for lunch? When will we have all the Answers?
Curiosity is a uniting human force that we all have inside us, that celebrates difference, connects creatively and breaks down boundaries. It is the engine that drives artists and scientists to make their enquiries about the world and our place in it. This is a story which ends with a beginning – what we’re all going to do next.
