[event] “LA as LAB” – Innovation in Arts & Culture 3/28/15



Living in Los Angeles, I’ve realized just what a hotbed of arts and cultural innovation.  If you look beyond Hollywood, you’ll find tech hubs like Silicon Beach, microhoods like the Arts District, and great venues like the Music Center.

For those in the area looking to expand your horizons, it’s worth a short trek eastward for this conference hosted by the Arts Management and Museum Studies programs at Claremont Graduate University on March 28th, 2015.

The conference will feature cutting edge models and projects in the arts sector in Los Angeles, stimulating discussion on how Los Angeles arts and cultural organizations are innovating in the field, transforming theory into practice.

[quick link] Call for proposals for the 2014 Art & Design for Social Justice Symposium @ FSU

Sharing a quick link from FSU >  2014 Art & Design for Social Justice Symposium –  call for proposals

The Florida State University College of Visual Arts, Theatre & Dance announces the call for research and creative works proposals for the 2014 Art & Design for Social Justice Symposium…. (taking place at) Florida State University campus in Tallahassee, Florida on Martin Luther King Day, January 20th, 2014.

The Art & Design for Social Justice Symposium focuses on how the tools and inherent abilities within the areas of art and design can be used to address issues confronting less advantaged groups within our local communities, states, regions or world. The event is designed to generate synergy, spawn collaborative projects among participants, create new scholarly initiatives, and allow examination of the role that art and design plays in the telling of a broader social narrative.

Abstracts are solicited for presentations on topics that reflect how art and/or design, broadly interpreted, can be avenues of solution seeking for issues of social justice. Proposals are also welcome from fields other than art and design including medicine, social work, criminal justice, law, music, theatre and dance. Proposals are due by midnight, October 4th, 2013.
