Margaret Elphinstone's TED talk is now available on line. In her talk, Margaret looks at how our technological inventiveness has outstripped our social and psychological development. We cannot handle the world we have created. Her talk seeks lessons from our distant ancestors who knew they must listen to the Earth and the Animals. We must rediscover and apply their skills if we are to survive. She argues that the arts have a crucial role in creating contemporary narratives addressing our predicament and offering alternative visions.
