The arts make you smart

Three acknowledgements. first to Hard News for the link to the Frontseat TVNZ arts programme. Second to Frontseat for the interview. Third to the new national arts spokesman, Chris Finlayson, for his enthusiasm, and the great strap line - the arts make you smart! Love it. To bits!

That said, and yep - here comes the caveat - I was totally disappointed to hear an arts spokesperson, of whatever persuasion, still concentrating on critiquing their opponents for not supporting the Venice Biennale - praising up their own contribution in the past to the building of TePapa - talking up symphony orchestras as being "up with the best" - and even praising their opponents for an arts recovery package, which, however welcome at the time, was 100% analogue in its reach and intention.

I can't help myself - I just have to take myself to the nearest cold pond and jump in to calm myself down - its just too too painful to listen to another deafening silence on anything remotely digital - National doesn't have to have a current response to the future of Te Ara - NZLive - NZ Digital Strategy , or whatever - but it would have been some kind of comfort to actually hear the words "digital and online" once!

Well done this morning Paul. I thought you did well. I recorded it and sent it through to YouTube, and placed it on my blog
