ARTocracy (literally art-power ) is the creative work method we use within theframework of the town is the venue. We believe artists are cultural activists and can energise people and their communities and add vitality to our society. The same creative process used in making art can be employed to untangle and overcome real-life challenges. The playful nature of art can defuse conflictand solve problems by giving free reign to the imagination, opening up new possibilities. ARTocracy suggests that all people have art-power, and thatthis type of power reaches far beyond the walls of the gallery.
The term ARTocracy was coined by Nuno Sacramento and Claudia Zeiske in their 2010 book of the same title. The book systematically explains how the creative process is applied through its layers of people, context, processes and results.
