Just as we’ve received a reminder from the Community Arts Network RSS feed, we are reminding all of our readers about this upcoming event. We’ll both be there in Houston (my home away from home for the better part of the last decade)
Sustaining our planet, our culture and our creative enterprise” are the topics of “Systems of Sustainability: Art, Innovation, Action (S.O.S.)” at the University of Houston in March. Part arts festival, part academic symposium, “S.O.S.” explores “how creative enterprise can be an integral tool for cultural growth and social change.” Organized by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and the Art Museum’s Blaffer Gallery at the University of Houston, the event includes site-specific projects, participatory activities, lectures, scholarly panels and opportunities for dialogue with artists, researchers, activists and scholars such as Matt Coolidge, The Center for Land Use Interpretation; Lindsay Utz, GOOD Magazine; Robert Harriss, Houston Advanced Research Center; Liz Lerman, Liz Lerman Dance Exchange; and more. The symposium runs March 27-29, 2009. [LINK]
