About the Program

Twenty-first century digital media makers are pushing the boundaries
of collaboration and copyright, once the exclusive domain of
industry. YouTube further opened up the digital revolution by:
exploding user choice, creating a user-to-user vetting system,
allowing online users to share and mix media, and creating a culture
of mass collaboration where audiences and communities can participate
as co-creators and co-curators. YouTube's success reflects a new
force where users are the agents of social change and the creators of
cultural content.

This day long Arts Intensive will reflect on the changes being led by
digital culture. We will examine how foundations and organizations
might want to position themselves to achieve impact within the
digital cultural space. With a myriad of different speakers from
various sectors, we will contemplate many of the emerging questions
evolving from digital media and culture. (more)
