Goodbye Ad Agencies - Hello Crowdsourced Creativity

Much like newspapers, conventional advertising agencies are becoming irrelevant. When one person with a wireless connection can be an agency, a media company, or even a manufacturer, traditional ad...
Davinci Institute Brussels's insight:

The radical democratization of business over the last decade created by open innovation, crowdsourcing, and co-creation is transforming how advertising works. When one person with a wireless connection can be an artist, a producer, or event a media channel, traditional advertising organizations have little to offer. Just as in publishing - advertising will have to look for new models and new solutions.

Learning From Artists - Creativity for Innovation

Learning From Artists - Creativity for Innovation | Creative Engagement | Scoop.it
This article is by Jean-Baptiste Danet, Group CEO of Dragon Rouge, a global design and innovation business, a passionate supporter of the arts, and co-author of the new book, Business Is Beautiful (LID Publishing, 2013).
Davinci Institute Brussels's insight:

An organization’s ability to develop innovative, elegant solutions is more likely to be limited by a lack of creativity, rather than a lack of process. As such, creativity has to be fostered and learned, rather than mandated or prescribed. Seen this way, the art world has plenty of problem-solving lessons that can be applied to the world of business.

Business mentors artists

Business mentors artists | Creative Engagement | Scoop.it

 

As austerity and more budget cuts loom, for the politicians who have to wield the scythe, the arts and artists are often the soft targets. So, it's time to professionalise. For the past 11 years, Business & Arts SA (Basa) has been running a mentoring programme, which was first initiated when the organisation began to identify gaps in levels of professional or business expertise within the arts sector. Business Members of Basa's mentoring programme can volunteer to work with organisations involved in theatre, dance, drama, music, the fine arts, literature and crafts.

When’s the last time you came out of an exhibition — or a symphony concert or dance program, for that matter — feeling like somebody had told you a story? The individual artworks, historical artifacts, or performances, sure. But the event— the evening — the program created by the cultural institution itself?

From Arts Marketing to Audience Engagement

From Arts Marketing to Audience Engagement | Creative Engagement | Scoop.it
In arts marketing, we often defer to the knowledge and experience of a small few, placing trust in their expertise to guide the rest of us. But while in the web 1.0 world, most were passive recipients, willing to receive content as delivered. Today, the least among us now demands a seat at the table, and via web 2.0 technologies, an even playing field has begun to emerge. This article shows how the transformation from marketing to engagement can be used by the arts.

The Rock-Opera Game - Crowdsourced

The Rock-Opera Game - Crowdsourced | Creative Engagement | Scoop.it
Davinci Institute Brussels's insight:

Since a stage version of Yamantaka//Sonic Titan’s rock opera Star would be astronomically espensive, the band decided to turn it into a game. The result,Your Task//Shoot Things, turns a would-be audience into the performer. For them, it seems a natural step - with gaming not that much different than other art forms. If you want to get involved: The band has also taken to crowdsourcing, offering homemade hot sauce and piano lessons to supporters who chip in.

British Government Demands Economic Return for Arts Funding

British Government Demands Economic Return for Arts Funding | Creative Engagement | Scoop.it
The Arts Council has launched a mission to find the next Arctic Monkeys after announcing a major shift towards funding aspiring rock stars.
Davinci Institute Brussels's insight:

Not only is the Arts Council England facing a 29.6 per cent cut to its budget over the next five years, it has also been asked by Maria Miller, the Culture Secretary, to deliver an economic return to the nation from the cultural activities that they fund. This has now resulted in funding the next hot band. While funding for any artists is a blessing - this not only decreases the money for museums, theatres and dance companies further, but interfers with the creative industries.

Videos published on social media are merely dumbed-down replicas of the original event.

Badly filmed snippleds shared on social networks are damaging for artistic productions, argues Sarah Howell. But do self-shot videos and photos really undermine the integrity of the original - or are they just a way of engaging with the production?

Between Culture & Economy: the New Cultural Entrepreneurship

Between Culture & Economy: the New Cultural Entrepreneurship | Creative Engagement | Scoop.it

Even in the midst of this economic downturn, demand for cultural content, brands and experiences is booming. In the UK, pop stars like Coldplay and Rihanna can barely compete with the 2011 blockbuster Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition at the National Gallery, with a total sell-out seeing tickets being resold for up to £400. Just about time to invest in the meeting point of culture, entrepreneurship and technology, says Peter Tullin in his new REMIX eBook

Where Are the Senior Arts Managers?

Where Are the Senior Arts Managers? | Creative Engagement | Scoop.it

In arts management, there is no large pool of trained leaders ready to move up to the top spot without some risk. The possibility of failure is inherent in virtually every appointment of a new executive director. Michael Kaiser suggests that search committees can improve the odds of success by being willing to embrace those who have the skills and the talent to succeed, if not the backgrounds to impress.

Culture is for people. Or... is it?

Culture is for people. Or... is it? | Creative Engagement | Scoop.it

Museums do not exist only to preserve collections, and performing arts institutions do not exist only to present artistic projects. Cultural institutions are primarily for people. They are places of encounter among people who wish to communicate with each other; who are looking for beauty and inspiration and meaning.

 

If those who lead them are not conscious of this, then a big part of our society will continue to consider the investment a waste, their offer incomprehensible, their existence irrelevant and, thus, disposable.

More and more theatres are setting aside "tweet seats" where patrons are invited to dish out their 140-character missives during the performance. While digital natives are delighted, others consider live tweeting as a distraction that undermines the depth and power of the artistic experience.
