Open Question: What is the purpose of dialogue?
- People generally only change their minds when in conversation with someone that loves them. How many conversations are we having with people we love?
- Maybe the point of conversation is to change our own minds. If we aren’t coming from that place, are we in dialogue at all?
- Trying to change other people’s mind is often a futile exercise. If true, then why bother having any dialogue at all?

“Bill Posters wants to teach people how to hack the streets. The graphic artist, activist and researcher (real name Barney Francis) has written an “illicit, tactical guide to creating art in public”. The Street Art Manual is an 11-step guide to street art covering the basics of graffiti and stencil work as well as providing an in-depth look at social media-grabbing work like urban murals.”—Henry Wong, “‘It stops the one-way flow of corporate bullshit’: graphic artist Bill Posters on subvertising.” Design Week.
