The Cultural Way of Being
A new book by Geoff Hall from Upptäcka Press
From the editor
g7cultural-bookThe Cultural Way of Being is Part 2 on the 4-part series Spiritual Direction in a Postmodern Landscape. This book offers encouragement to those who want to know how their work can become culturally formative and not just personally expressive. The Cultural Way of Being is rooted in 21st Century culture and calls for artists to shun cultural evacuation and resurrect spirituality.

"If we believe ourselves to be artists for the public domain, then we need to understand what this means, not only for what we do, but for who we are. We are not accountants, engineers, plumbers or electricians, builders or demolition experts—although good art may entail a sense of building and demolition!"

Some of the greatest detractors from our work as artists are those who share redemption's story. "You should quit and get a proper job!" is my favourite. However, between the calling and our release into the public domain comes The Wilderness! It is a journey marked by attrition and disorientation as we struggle to make sense of our calling in a dry and weary land. This is not the end of it, but preparation for the public, cultural domain. The good news is there are guides who can help us navigate the terrain.
