Cardboard Castles and Other Amenities...

I am really interested in using different forms of cultural action to help build better communities. Communities are a vital social model, allowing us to tackle problems beyond the ability of individuals with the focus of a defined (usually relatively small) group of people. How do the arts and cultural work in general help communities grow more sustainable futures? If you have a cool website or project or your own ideas on these subjects please let me know.

Reflections on Hello

Well I’m finally settled in here at school, so I will be posting more regularly.

One of the very interesting things about coming back to school (especially here were ¾ of the junior class go abroad) is everyone is asking about what people did last year. This forces one to reflect and define their year into a quick sound bight capable of being communicated in a five minute conversation. Although this is a flawed form of social reflection on individual experiences, it does show that communities play an important role personal reflection. How I wonder can culture direct this natural tendency of community for inspiring individual contemplation towards a more significant reflection?
