Twenty-one theater artists, all nominated for 2015 Drama Desk Awards, are asked: Can Theater Change The World.
We don't just look at buildings: their facades, unequalled or ugly, conceal the spaces we inhabit. We are born, work, love and die in architecture. We buy and sell it, rent it and squat in it, create and counteract it. These aspects of buildings-economic, erotic, political and psychological-are crucial if we are to understand architecture properly. And because architecture molds us just as much as we mold it, view architecture helps us to understand our lives and our world. Through ten great buildings across the world, Tom Wilkinson reveals the strong and intimate relationship between society and architecture and asks: can architecture change our lives for the better? The ten buildings featured in Bricks & Mortals are: The Tower of Babel, Babylon (c. 650 BC), The Special House, Rome (AD 64-68), Djinguereber Mosque, Timbuktu (1327), Palazzo Rucellai, Florence (1450), The Garden of Nonpareil Brightness, Beijing (1709-1860), Festival Theatre, Bayreuth, Germany (1876), Highland Park Car Factory, Detroit (1909-1910), E.1027, Cap Martin (1926-29), Finsbury Fitness Centre, London (1938), Footbridge, Rio de Janeiro, London (2010)
(3BL Media/Justmeans) - In a world that has long relied on business and science to make a better and healthier planet, we see traditional disciplines embracing collaboration with artists to gain new perspectives in solving the world’s problems. Impact investors have been looking for similar opportunities in the creative economy, but there have been none – until now. Laura Callanan is the founding partner of Upstart Co-Lab, a nonprofit connecting artists, industry leaders, and investors to solve social challenges. She is the former senior deputy chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, where she led all grant-making programs, operations, and research before launching Upstart Co-Lab in 2016. Previously, as a consultant with McKinsey & Company’s... She has served in a leadership capacity for a number of organizations, including her role as senior adviser at the United Nations Development Programme, executive director of the Prospect Hill Foundation, associate director at the Rockefeller... KE: Upstart Co-Lab aligns systems, connects people, and brings creativity and investment together. LC: I have a friend to thank for inspiring me. Jim Houghton was the founding director of Signature Theatre in New York City. Six years ago, at one of our periodic lunches, Jim told me about big plans for a $70 million public-private partnership to build a three-theatre complex for Signature. The tickets for all of the shows would be $25, making theatre accessible to diverse audiences. The theatre would support living playwrights writing original plays about the experience of today. I had been on the Signature Theatre board in the early years, knew how it had started small, knew the importance of its mission, and knew what this growth meant. Suddenly I heard myself say, “Jim, YOU are a social entrepreneur. ” I then babbled on about how nobody called him that because he worked in the arts – and he did not call himself that because he worked in the arts. But that, indeed, he was a social entrepreneur. I started wondering how many other artists were also social entrepreneurs. That was the start of the journey that led to the launch of Upstart Co-Lab in April 2016. By the way, Signature opened its new facility in 2012, and it lives up to all of Jim’s original plans. KE: What is the mission of Upstart Co-Lab. LC: Our mission is to create opportunities for artist-innovators to deliver social impact at scale. We want to increase opportunities for artists as innovators, unleash more capital for creativity, and enable sustainable, creative lives. We work to foster collaboration between artists, impact investors, and social entrepreneurs. KE: Is every artist a social entrepreneur. LC: We believe artists are entrepreneurs and innovators just by the nature of who they are, what they do, and the work they create. When we talk about artists, we include all artistic disciplines – music, dance, painting, and writing – out of a core belief in the value of creativity. Creativity connects tradition with innovation. To craft radical change requires an understanding of context, whether the form is aesthetic or scientific. In that way, artists represent our ability to explore, take risk, and solve problems. Many artists are engaged in a social practice, using different tools and techniques to address climate change and social cohesion, but they are working like other social entrepreneurs. Artists are working in every thematic area, on every social issue you can name: youth development, environmental conservation, community building, sustainable food, and criminal justice. KE: Can you give us some examples of the artist-innovators who have inspired Upstart. LC: Artist and designer Jae Rhim (JR) Lee gave a popular TED Talk titled My Mushroom Burial Suit. What started as an artistic provocation is now a company, Coeio, which offers the Infinity Burial Suit. JR would like to see society become less of a “death-denying culture” and.
