Art Center Futures

Last night Art Center College of Design‘s new president, Lorne Buchman, started a conversation within our community about future directions with a few guests from outside the college. This is a Livescribe recording of the panel discussion, delivered to a packed house of students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Panelists were Katherine Hayles, David Rice, Stephen Oliver, and Andrew Blauvelt.
The discussion was webcast, but I’m not sure they saved it in a form that is still accessible, so I’m posting the session here for those who are interested. For those of you unfamiliar with Livescribe recordings, the audio is linked to the written notes, and you can click anywhere on the notes to hear what was being said at that time. It’s a useful way to record a session as long as this one, because you can skip around.
Today we will have a day-long brainstorm on a number of topics: students & student life (life?! what life!! you mean there’s life outside of Art Center??!! ), curriculum & pedagogy, outside partnerships, governance & community (promises to be a hot topic, given the excitement of the past couple of years), and future trends & global context. If I have time (we start the term next Monday) I’ll report on that as well.
