How did the human brain change as humanity moved through each of these developments, and what was the role of culture? 

In this talk, Tessitura Network President Andrew Recinos explores how we slowly changed the way we use our brains, and the long, complicated history that resulted. How, he asks, can those of us working in arts and culture weave creativity back into humanity? 

“What is the vitamin that your community needs to prevent their creative scurvy?”

Andrew delivered this talk to 500 attendees from more than 60 arts and cultural organisations at the 2018 Tessitura European Conference in Manchester, UK in November 2018.
