Watching Culture Evolve: A New Cultural Creative Study To Be Released Soon
Wisdom University’s Institute for the Emerging Wisdom Culture, directed by sociologist Dr. Paul H. Ray (one of the original authors of The Cultural Creatives), has almost completed a major new study on America’s Cultural Creatives.
The findings of the study were set to be released in the Summer of 2008…but weren’t. I recently read that a Fall 2008 date was set. Any day now, I guess. I’ve signed up to be notified of the release of the Cultural Creative study and will be sure to write all about the findings.
7 Different Studies Throughout the World
The American study was conducted in conjunction with 6 similar Cultural Creative studies in:
Our Name in Lights
The findings of these studies will support a documentary film produced by Taylor Thomson, a Canadian film producer, on how our group is dealing creatively with the global challenges confronting us, especially global warming.
And in Print too
Dr. Paul Ray and Dr. Jim Garrison are also writing a book designed to summarize the current research, support the themes of the documentary film, and explore the historical and cultural implications of CC’s as humans move into an intensely ecological phase of our history.
No doubt, this is a very exciting time for Cultural Creativity.
