In a world marked by uncertainty and rapid technological advancements, Ursula K. Le Guin’s timeless quote:
“Hard times are coming, when we’ll be wanting the voices of creatives who can see alternatives to how we live now, can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies to other ways of being, and even imagine real grounds for hope. We’ll need creatives who can remember freedom – poets, visionaries – realists of a larger reality”
