Essential Dance Film - Quarantine (featuring Kyle Abraham)

"An older man looks at his younger self (Kyle Abraham) explore an old quarantine building for enslaved Africans. Quarantine is the first film in Gabri Christa's "Another Building" series, which features short narrative dance films that take place in and around historic buildings and sites connected to the Dutch History"

Susan Davis Cushing's insight:

Check out this vibrant Kyle Abraham short film. Quality film is the future delivery method allowing emerging dance reaching a wider audience. Mark Kirschner and Tendu TV bridge the gap Let me know if you agree. How did I miss this when it was released in July? Praising the internet for bringing it to my living room now!

David Byrne for Creative Time Reports: Rampant inequality is squeezing out the artistic genius that made New York such a vibrant cultural capital. We can't let that happen
Susan Davis Cushing's insight:

As much as I dislike this question, it brought many reactions and suggestions to both Creative Time Reports and The Guardian. Is it time for artists to get out of Dodge? A malingering question, this post by Byrne brings, once again, a call to action.

Dancers Among Us: Photographs Inspire Us to Appreciate Each Moment - Visual News | Terpsichore Muses | Scoop.it

"'BE passionate joyful euphoric intense angry present ALIVE' – that’s the advice from world renowned photographer Jordan Matter. His project Dancers Among Us carries that spirit with it, transforming everyday situations into dynamic, and often nearly unbelievable scenes that capture the human body ALIVE. From the graceful, to the comical, to the intense, Matter has photographed dancers of all sorts in locations around the world – but especially in his home New York. Each image is an encouraging treasure, one that calls us to enjoy the beauty of life in each moment."

Luke Hancock - H&H Social Design's curator insight, March 22, 2013 3:10 PM

Because nonprofits have the ability to tell such moving and compelling stories and share insightful data into the problems their organizations are trying to solve, I think these organizations should be at the forefront of embracing content marketing, providing their constituents blogs, video and infographics.

The French street artist J R, who recently photographed dancers but otherwise is new to ballet, now finds himself choreographing a piece for New York City Ballet.
Susan Davis Cushing's insight:

This is a must read. More: "Yes, it’s true: City Ballet is turning itself — and more than 40 members of its company — over to a man who has never choreographed before. He watched his first ballet in June. Do you hear that sound? Choreographers everywhere are eating their hearts out."

Debra Askanase's curator insight, February 20, 2013 3:28 PM

96% of nonprofits said they were on Facebook vs. 90% of businesses. 86% of nonprofits on Facebook reported posting on the site multiple times per week, vs. 66% of small businesses.

Deborah Spector's curator insight, February 25, 2013 8:07 AM

Nonprofits are more likely to be present on social media channels than other businesses. They report that finding relevant content is the most time consuming.

 

Now the question is how many nonprofits have a social media strategy?
