Redmoon Theater shared the amazing work that Redmoon is doing with public art. His vision of being able to entertain and engage those that find their art, up to and including the entire population of the city of Chicago is inspiring. And that is his full intention, to inspire everyone, to create a new generation of new innovators through their exposure to their work.
James Goggin of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago took us through the design process. He showed us how innovation comes from restraints and embracing the barriers that we are given.
Finally, we heard from Albany Park Theater Project, an incredible inclusive theater group that brings teens together, doing stories of real people from the communities in which they live. They are pursuing a form of true community participation, an inspiration at a time when we're discussing the need for exactly this sort of thing.
Mass exposure, embracing barriers, and community participation. A fantastic trio that expands the boundaries of our art and informs our ideas for growth as an industry. These are things that will create loyalty and spur innovation in our industry and hopefully are expanding ideas here at the conference and for those watching.
