Commonwealth: Collaboration and Connectedness

In partnership with:
Date and time
Friday, August 28, 2009

Artists explore the value of interdependence in their field and discuss how those in the media and arts worlds find wealth in connectedness within their communities, their counterparts in this network, and across the globe. The word commonwealth comes from the traditional meaning of wealth: well being. It suggests that a community of individuals and institutions finds wealth in governing itself collaboratively and for common good. This panel asks what unites artists and how they are investing in the relationships and networks that weave artists into connection.
