I'm thrilled to point you to a new blog in the ArtsJournal firmament, written by friend and colleague Doug Borwick. Engaging Matters is an online expression of Doug's passion for and promotion of more-connected arts organizations -- organizations that are deeply entangled with the daily lives of their neighborhoods and their neighbors. Says he in the opening post:
The point of this blog will be to encourage, nudge, prod, or cajole (as necessary) the arts community in the direction of ever more productive partnerships with the communities they serve.
His first few posts already offer great insights, and real-world examples of organizations living toward that code.
Go check it out, and engage!
