I am pleased, honoured, and, you know, perplexed to have been named as the first ever ‘Ambassador of Creativity’ to Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Sounds like a good thing to be – whatever it is.
I expect to be getting some kind of big cloak and hopefully a crown. Or at least some form of ambassadorial headgear.
Wellington has a reputation as a cool and creative place, so it will be great to see what’s happening there. I will bring them some freshly-baked European creativity, as long as I can stuff it into my suitcase and get it through customs.
