America Needs You, Really! Creative People as Civic Leaders

etching by Tom Huck

A couple of years I attended an ArtServe conference in Lansing, MI, where I heard Tom Tressor, the "Creativity Champion", exhort us to Art the Vote. Tom's mission is standing up for creativity, and encouraging creative people to seek public office.

We've just been through this tremendous political activity. I know many of you were inspired by it and aren't quite ready to go back to things as they were. Are you ready to run for public office? You know someone who is?

When asked what qualities people wanted to see in a leader, the responses included:

- Vision
- Accountability
- Real leadership
- Interest and knowledge of the arts
- Inspiration
- Problem solver
- Someone who can create and share new resources
- Creativity and resourcefulness
- Compassion
- Intelligence

This post is a "heads-up" to explore this concept. Intriguing, isn't it? Visit Tom's website and see what a difference you can make, America Needs You, Really!
