Fall 2012 fashion is having a Hippie Luxe moment. 70’s references abound and we fully expect to see Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix appear any moment.

Cultural Creatives Movement

Cultural Creatives Now 35% of US | 10% in Transition AOC New Day

Cultural Creatives often describe themselves as ‘bridge people’ between the Traditionals and Moderns, ‘trying to make a ‘cultural synthesis’ that moves the world beyond its polarized opposites. This subset of global-thinking people first emerged in the sixties and is 65% women.

The core values of Cultural Creatives remain:

  • Ecological sustainability
  • Enjoying exposure to foreign ideas and culture
  • Concern about women and children worldwide
  • Priority of health care and education
  • Desire to rebuild neighborhoods and community
  • Improving neighborhoods and community
  • Emphasis on creating caring relationships and family life
  • Social conscience and demand for authenticity
  • Guarded social optimism
  • Emphasis on altruism, self-actualization and spirituality as a single complex of values.

In the 1995 study, Cultural Creatives were 23.6% of US adults. By 1999 they had increased to 26%. 

An addition to the new 2008 research is a new group called the Transitionals, representing 10% of Americans. 

The current US breakdown in Dr. Ray’s research is:

Moderns 39.7%

Cultural Creatives 34.9%

Traditionals 15.4%

Transitionals 10.1%

In my twenties, my husband’s brother produced a marvelous breast sculpture a pulsating piece of female anatomy, featured in a Lincoln Center Salvador Dali moment. It offered endless hours of kaleidoscopic, lightshow effects, and transformed our ordinary Brooklyn apartment into a posh night club …

Much of the Whitney (Summer of Love) art was created under hallucinogenic influence of LSD, a fantasy-inducing drug that challenges our perception of reality with merging shapes, forms and colors that aren’t “real”.

Vivid, red geraniums aren’t actually visible on a dark, cloud-covered summer night, but one could probably pass a lie-detector test insisting that they were visible at 3am in full-crimson splendor, defying science in all their glory.

My Carversville flowers didn’t glow in the dark last night, and for one brief moment, I realized that forward-looking me wanted a supernatural, spiritual, acid-like experience with this heavily-promoted, healthy, heavenly light show. Read on
