"Art is central to all our lives, not just the better-off and educated. Every child ever born, they all want to hear and to tell stories, to sing, to make music, to act out little dramas, to paint pictures, to make sculptures. This is born in and we breed it out. And then, when we have bred it out, we say that art is elitest, and at the same time we either fetishize it with high prices, jargon and inaccessibility. Or we ignore it altogether. The truth is, artist or not, we are all born on the creative continuum and that is a heritage and a birthright of all our lives."
- Jeanette Winterson
