I've been thinking about the grey idea: the idea that we artists should wear grey in our public protests to show what the world would be like without the arts. The problem is that grey is what we are fighting against! I think the "wear grey" idea is too boring! We are not exciting the public imagination with this grey campaign are we? The PSA with dancer and cello with very colourful background is what we are about! (See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rtI3NPa9jE). And the grey man with the umbrella is what we are fighting! Wouldn't our message be much clearer if our public messaging through public actions was in line with this great PSA?
