ThinkTank4's theme will be "Cross-Disciplinary Creativity" at the University of Georgia, Lamar Dodd School of Art from June 5-11, 2009.
The 21st century workplace is increasingly complex and demands the development of technical, transformational, and empathetic skills. Competitive workers will need to work in teams, forge connections between content across diverse disciplines, and pursue new imaginative insights. At the same time, the arts will maintain a classic role of forging community and articulating public values. What forms of thinking can best prepare artists and designers to gain from and contribute to our evolving 21st world?
Fellowship applications for Stage2 will be posted soon. The projected fellowship deadline: December 30, 2008.
