  • In the last five years, the Internet has vastly enhanced our ability to display images to each other, and we can now think of ourselves not just as viewers and consumers of images but as makers and users of them ourselves. Indeed, if on the Internet we do not use images, we appear stuck in print culture and oblivious to the possibilities of the new medium. We can of course avoid giving these impressions by including some wallpaper and a few bits of eye candy, without thereby getting very far at all into graphics as a mode of conveying meaning....

  • America’s modern culture is unavoidably and irreversibly immersed in the media. Men, Women, grandmothers, teenagers, even children are subject to the powerful influence of media today. As Americans, we are subject to an abounding atmosphere of subliminal messages and culturally strive to be like those we see on television, in the movies, and walking down the streets of Hollywood. It is vital to realize in our hustle-bustle lives that a billboard with a favorite celebrity sprawled across it does not deserve respect and extensive praise.

  • Romans held Greek civilization in high regard and, like us, considered fifth-century-BC Greece to be the region’s golden age, a time characterized by refined artistic and cultural production, scholarship, and military strength. During his reign five hundred years later, Augustus sought to align his rule with this era and promote a rebirth of the golden age of Greece in Rome. Augustus’s interest in Greek art and culture strengthened Roman reverence for classical Greek art, philosophy, and intellectual life.

  • Taken as a whole, the German cinema is both more and less than the sum of its films. When one thinks of individual titles, quite a few, especially from the 1920s and early 1930s, have entered the canon, have become cultural icons the world over. Yet in these very same classics, the brilliant and the dark sides of their genius appear not only close together but inextricable. If we think of The Golem, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, Nosferatu and Dr Mabuse: these are titles which by themselves evoke the spirit of an age, conjuring up...

  • Facilitating access is concerned with assisting people to command appropriate health care resources in order to improve or preserve their well-being. If services are available, then a population may ‘have access’ to health care provision. The extent to which access is gained can depend on administrative, political, social and cultural factors and barriers. The services available must be relevant and effective if people are to gain access to improved health outcomes.

  • In this publication, Jeremy Nowak, President and CEO of The Reinvestment Fund, examines the role of community-based arts and cultural activity in neighborhood development and points towards strategies for building an integrated vision of creativity and development.

  • Arts-related real estate markets have paradoxical entry barriers and advantages. There are barriers inherent in the uncertainty of demand, zoning issues and the costs of retrofitting old systems. At the same time, entry barriers are lowered because the space demand is flexible and often requires minimal high-end fixtures and adaptations. Art-making, performance, craft production and exhibition spaces attract users who want to adapt and re-create space in flexible ways.

  • The starting point for this document was a review of literature on the creative sector and community change guided by Mark Stern and Susan Seifert from SIAP. Next, staff from TRF interviewed people involved in community development and cultural activity in Philadelphia and Baltimore, two cities that exemplify the plight of post-industrial urban centers. We then examined the arts and culture-related investments within TRF’s portfolio and reflected on how those investments relate to TRF’s model of investor-driven change. ...

  • Good availability of bank credit and informal capital can partially but not fully substitute for underdeveloped equity markets. New Zealand’s banking sector has been growing since 1990 in line with growth in Australia and Denmark. Informal capital markets are also larger than in most OECD countries relative to GDP. International Linkages While New Zealand’s economy has low formal barriers to trade, its share of external trade (relative to GDP) is well below that of similar-sized, high-performing OECD countries.

  • Community arts and cultural activities, through their intrinsic expressive and exploratory processes and products, have the capacity to catalyze or reinforce place-making through each component of the architecture of community: through the coalescing of social and civic relationships around creative activity; through the creation and reinforcement of quality public assets that incubate or nurture art and culture; through market demand for commercial and residential space used by artists and the creative sector in general; and through networked enterprises of cultural instituti...

  • Significant development always builds from existing assets and points of strength. Accordingly, not all economically distressed places are positioned to utilize arts and cultural activities as a major development strategy at either the regional or neighborhood level.

  • Reform of development processes is especially important to niche developers and investors within the cultural community because they are often least able to incur the high transaction costs of idiosyncratic public processes. Small arts entrepreneurs also lack the financial and political clout to maneuver through entrenched real estate development systems. The greatest efficiency is created if there is clarity and predictability at points of public entry and adequate assistance at the civic level to maximize access.
