On Thursday night, they were followed by images of displaced migrants in a Tunisian refugee camp.

Participation in Arts and Culture: The Importance of Community Venues

"Many arts organizations are discover- ing that where people choose to attend arts and cultural events can be crucial to developing effective strate- gies for reaching broader and more diverse audiences. New research on the Wallace -Reader’s Digest Funds’ Community Partnerships for Cultural Participation (CPCP) initiative finds that more people attend arts and cultural events in community venues – such as open air spaces, schools, and places of worship – than in conven- tional arts venues, such as concert halls, theaters, museums, and art gal- leries. Although audiences for events held in both types of venues overlap, about one-fourth of the people who participate in arts and culture do so only in community venues. These findings confirm the wisdom of one strategy employed by many arts organizations: presenting arts and cultural activities in places normally used for other purposes.

The findings also have deep relevance for policy- makers and funders, as well as those who are interested in cultural planning or facilities development, or are other- wise engaged in creating opportunities for participation in the arts." [Introduction, p. 2]

Universal Design Thinking

Having lost his ability to walk at age 5, and the ability to breathe solely on his own later in life, Dr. Victor Pineda has grown to become the consummate multi-hyphenate: scholar, professor, activist, filmmaker, international guest speaker, social design thinker, and White House appointee under President Obama. His day job affords him the ability to travel the world, working with governments, businesses, and locals on inclusion initiatives for persons with disabilities. His passions afford him a creative twist on everything he does, from adapting and creating new technologies, to working with the likes of Microsoft and the UN. On Innovation Crush, Victor dishes on several principles of innovation from universal design thinking, to the power of simplification, to policy change. More at worldenabled.org.

Businesses Behind Bars with Chris Redlitz

5 years ago, Chris Redlitz walked into San Quentin prison for the first time. He came out a changed man...luckily only 3 hours later. The serial entrepreneur and technology visionary had reluctantly visited to speak to inmates about entrepreneurship, but the passion he witnessed in that room convinced him to start The Last Mile, a business and technology incubator inside San Quentin, the oldest prison in California. On Innovation Crush, Chris walks us through his passion, personal transformation, the differences between incarcerated entrepreneurs and free businessmen...oh, and that one time he sailed from California to Hawaii.

Social Media Inflation Index

"Call it social media inflation. Nominally, you may have a lot more followers this year — but if your audience growth didn’t outpace the competition or the industry average, then the value of your social audience likely depreciated.

Sure, some brands grow “smarter” than others. Sweepstakes and giveaways, for example, might result in more followers, but are less likely to convert “likes” into loyal customers. But without historical and competitive context, reporting on follower growth is an empty, self-congratulatory exercise.

Enter the 2016 Social Media Inflation Index. We used the TrackMaven digital analytics software platform to analyze a sample of 26,965 brands across all industries. The results, presented in the summary graph below, display the median monthly follower growth percentage per brand on five major social networks — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest — across 2015."

Just how good is your growth? As more people join social networks worldwide, is the value of your brand audeince depreciating?

What is Culture Track?

"Culture Track is the largest tracking study focused exclusively on the ever-changing attitudes and behaviors of U.S. cultural consumers, as well as the trends in attendance and the motivators and barriers that affect participation. It has been fielded six times since 2001.

Culture Track 2014 is the product of over a decade of LaPlaca Cohen’s research and dedication to producing a current, highly-actionable resource for the leading cultural institutions across the nation.

The 2014 edition of Culture Track arrives at a pivotal moment for cultural organizations nationwide. Audience behaviors and expectations are changing rapidly, driven by ever-multiplying and diversifying options for spending leisure time, and by technology developments that are fundamentally altering the way we interface with our world. The implications for cultural institutions are significant and, without close study, difficult to determine." [Introduction p. 1]

LaPlaca Cohen worked in partnership with research firm Campbell Rinker to field Culture Track 2014. The study was conducted using a nationwide online survey with 4,026 respondents, representing all 50 states. Respondents were U.S. residents ages 18 or over who were double-confirmed for interest in cultural events and attendance to at least one cultural activity in the past year. The study defines cultural participation as attendance to a specific range of cultural activities, such as museums/art exhibits, theater, music, file festival, opera, zoos, botantical gardents, and more.
