The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything, and with governments overtaking markets in deciding economic winners and losers, arts spaces have ended up among the biggest losers. But research demonstrates that honing imagination and wonder is essential to creating cultures dedicated to innovative social and business practices. That is why CEOs and policy makers need to take note: any society hoping to build back better must start by supporting their arts venues — the training ground for wonder.
