Why do we tend to focus on deficits when assessing individual and community needs?

This matters to me because our community, and individuals within it, tend to be labelled and stereo-typed based on aggregate statistics. I believe this matters as we can’t talk about empowering and engaging while disempowering and perpetuating stereo-types.

What's more important: answers, or questions? Are the ‘big’ questions - life, the universe, everything - more important than ‘little’ ones? Does a good question provoke debate or laughter, lead to certain answers or create reflective pause? Can it change laws, minds or lives? Are questions the best answers?

The Interrobang – a new festival from the Wheeler Centre – is looking for the best questions in the world.
