Art + Emotion: Wonder, Joy, and Inspiration
CODAworx brings together four creative thought-leaders to greet us at the intersection of art + emotion. They will help us explore emotion as the currency of art. How and why does art impact our emotions, and thus help us to connect with one another? Ultimately, can art foster empathy and compassion?

Welcome to the Creative Revolution!
Early this year, CODAworx named 25 exemplary leaders of positive change in the field of commissioned art - our “Creative Revolutionaries” - to celebrate, to learn from, to set the bar. Heading into 2021, the task of demonstrating what this role signifies is even more essential, as the stakes are higher. It’s what led us to host this dialogue, to flesh out the lens from which we might view the terms of “creative revolution.”
CODAhorizons kicks off its debut event with a focus on Creative Revolutionaries. Four panelists, representing some of the most fiercely visionary cultural creatives in the commissioned art industry, discuss what it means to be a creative revolutionary during this time when the world is in such great distress.
