Course blog for American University PERF-570, Fall 2014
I thought I’d share a little art mind candy this week.
In 2014, The American Arts Incubator was launched in partnership between Zero1: The Art and Technology Network and the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. It was designed as an arts meets technology cultural exchange program deploying artists to Laos, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines. It is designed to use contemporary art, design process, and technology to engage and fund foreign populations in developing public art that addresses a local social issue.
This program has packed just about everything I love (art, technology, hack days, public art, education, cross-cultural understanding, development) into one brilliant package.
From a management perspective my mind takes a hit trying to concept, understand, and organize all of the resources and time coordinating a project like this would require. Also, there are so many factors that can influence the outcome.
