Columbia University Announces:
Critical Issues in Arts and Technology for Arts Managers
AN EXTENDED DISCUSSION ON ART, ARTISTS AND TECHNOLOGY
June 6-7 and 13-15, 2002: Teachers College, Columbia University
From the web site:
This newest course offering of the Program in Arts Administration, Critical
Issues in Arts and Technology for Arts Managers will examine critical
issues in the continuing use of technology in the arts for arts managers.
It will combine relevant intellectual exploration of educational and
artistic issues with a focus on practical concerns such as content,
protection, function and delivery of technological methods and innovations
in the arts with particular emphasis on their effect and demands on arts
managers. The purpose of the course is to expand creative thinking for
actual and aspiring practitioners in the arts. It will examine some of the
conceptual thinking in the area, practical tools, form vs. function,
communication and educational challenges, dilemmas and potential.
Technology will include the Internet, audio delivery, interactive
technology, email, and television.
Scholars and artists in music, art, dance, literature and theatre will
present current thinking about the transmission of existing art work,
translation of an art work into an electronic form, creation of work
as/with/for technology, display of such work, interaction, effect on
audiences, on learners and on communities. Professional arts organizations
and artists will demonstrate cutting edge work in music, art, dance,
theatre and literature using technology which serves a variety of
functions-education, outreach, creating new audiences, creating new art,
gentrifying neighborhoods, plugging artists more directly into the labor force.
These will be followed by participatory work in which the audience is given
a series of thematic questions and issues, adds more issues of its own, and
breaks into facilitated small group discussion. These discussions, and the
rest of the course, will be documented and will promote the model of
participatory online learning for which this is a prototype in arts
