This study is a broad-based measure for advanced economic growth and sustainable prosperity based on the 3Ts of economic development — talent, technology, and tolerance. Those are three qualities that advance the careers of artists, creators, and designers–when enhancing the quality of life in their communities, regions and nations.

This link (https://vimeo.com/215526994) is the original video of 1926 Faust and audio CU Denver ElectroAcoustic Ensemble as led by Donald Sosin & Todd Reid performed live for the 2017 Denver Silent Film Festival on 4/29/17.
What a great representation of faculty and student talent from the College of Arts & Media. Prof. Todd Reid and musical director Donald Sosin built a silent film accompaniment to Faust in just 2 days. Instead of weeks or months–our students can create a 2-hour soundtrack in just 2 days. Bravo too to Howie Movshovitz for curating this great festival.
All of the presentations were terrific examples of the intellectual work going on in the CU Denver College of Arts & Media. My own training being in music, Elena Jones’s presentation caught my attention and stirred my imagination. “Supermodel (You Better GesamtkunstWERK!): RuPaul’s Drag Race Seen Through Richard Wagner’s ‘Total Work of Art.'”
What a pleasure to have X Alfonso and Sandra Lopes visit CAM, along with Erin Trapp and Maria Valenzuela from the Biennial of the Americas.
The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) Emerging Creatives Student Summitt brought together students who have an interest in the arts, crossing disciplinary boundaries, and developing collaborative projects. Each year, 100 undergraduate and graduate students attended the summit from a2ru partner universities across the country, along with 20 administrators, faculty, and staff. These summits have a strong project-based component with activities such as panel discussions with special guests, keynote speakers, site visits or field trips, performances and exhibitions, networking opportunities, and “bootcamp” or skill-building experiences built in throughout.
The 2017 a2ru Student Summit was hosted by the University of Florida, February 8-11, 2017, in Gainesville, FL. This year’s theme was WATER: New Directions Through Arts and Science. No community on this planet is without it’s water-based challenges. Water-centric grand challenges are many, ranging from access and social justice issues in local and global contexts, to environmental degradation, to toxicological challenges, to saltwater incursion into freshwater, to sea level rise. Uniquely situated less than two hours from the Gulf Coast and from the Atlantic Ocean in an area known for its numerous freshwater springs, the University of Florida has great strength in local, regional, national, and international research and creative activity when it comes to these and other water-centric grand challenges. This summit will feature panels and working group leadership from distinguished professor in the life sciences and the arts at the University of Florida, as well as leading artists and water scholars from around the country.
