Threaded Ed.19 'The Cultural Capital Issue'
It is a truth universally acknowledged; these days you have to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. That applies to the masses. But for artists and applied artists of any kind, as you probably know already, there’s a level of omniscience that just seems to be expected: even taken for granted.
Must we always be on the grid? It seems yes. But whether the centre of your world is in a big city or in a remote wilderness, we do hope your creative and cultural capital is being put to good use.
Threaded Ed.19 is your guide to our collective creative, cultural capital, which is something even more than a city of the mind. So for this Cultural Capital edition of Threaded, fasten your seatbelts and travel safely in your electric-blue hovercar on the way to prosperity junction, through the dream city of the mind.

That’s why we put so much thought into curating the entries in this edition...
