Culture is a Creative Act

Have you ever felt like you don’t quite fit in? Haunted by the feeling that you don’t quite belong anywhere? It’s the curse of the innovator, to be living a life at the edges. But here at the edges you can see how culture is itself an invention; we consciously create culture through the stories we tell. Culture is a creative act: if you want to learn about a culture, listen to the stories. If you want to change a culture, change the stories.
