I've been quietly lurking, and did not expect to offer anything to this

the tools, processes and cultural questioning, central to the discussions.

It is clear that there are now many higher education centers around the
world, with more facilities and cultural development opportunities on the

One key course of development for higher education programs in the arts,
in working to be relevant and true to their time, place and circumstance,
is to be a local 'living laboratory'.   To increasingly be a place-based
partner in community initiatives (long-term), and to help creatively
reshape the very nature of the university and institutional education in
its local and global context.   Such intentions will provide a good
measure for the impact and implications of the arts (media arts; tech.
and tele. arts; arts and sciences; eco-arts) in our present situation; so
in need of creative interventions.

heart of cultural development and vision in a complex, tele-mediated
