We need infrastructure to allow change, but equally we need a will and way to enact change. Culture is our expression of our will and way of doing. Creative cultural practice is our psychological support for change, giving us a sense of agency and an on-going model to live in the different way we have created.

We are wary of change as it is untested. It therefore does not follow that new information, indicating a need for change will in itself automatically cause us to adapt to more positive behaviour, (despite the fact that rationally we may have made an attitudinal shift based on the science presented to us). New information can even have negative result as it can cause us to have negative feelings and feel personally attacked.
