the arts in our community

Today the Democracy Collaborative convened scholars at the University of Maryland and community activists from Prince George's County to talk about working together. I participated in a session on the arts, which generated numerous concrete, practical ideas connected to the Prince George's Information Commons. There are ideas afoot in the County to develop it as an arts center with a strong African American aspect, profiting from the University's presence. The people who met today may be able to help by collecting information about existing arts assets and displaying them either on maps or public databases (or in other ways). I also think it would be useful to survey existing arts groups about their partnerships and collaborations, in order to construct a diagram of the arts network in the County. (Network mapping software can do this very nicely.)
