The life I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another,
until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place my touch will be felt.

State of the Arts 2010

On Saturday, June 19th 2010 c3: VisionLAB presented STATE OF THE ARTS: 2010, a symposium addressing future trends in the Arts and Media and their function in Culture and Society.   Inspired in part by the LA Opera Ring, this inquiry also functioned as a celebration of the Ring Festival LA and served as an inaugural event to launch the creation of a global arts and media node in partnership with the The Millennium Project and the State of the Future annual report.  This unique symposium served as a transdisciplinary inquiry into the future of and function of art and media in society by bringing together thought leaders in the areas of the arts and media, technology, science, creativity and consciousness studies.  For more information and photos please visit www.c3so.com. LA Opera Ring Fest More than a century ago, composer Richard Wagner conceived his epic four-opera cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen as a festival event that completely engaged the city of Bayreuth, Germany. In 2010, LA Opera joined forces with more than 75 cultural and educational institutions in Los Angeles to stage Ring Festival LA. Southern Californians and cultural tourists from around the world will be able to enjoy a wide variety of special exhibitions, performances, symposia and special events all centered on LA Opera’s presentation of Wagner’s Ring cycle in 2010, the first time that the epic masterwork will be presented in its entirety in Los Angeles. Ring Festival LA events took place in a wide variety of venues throughout Southern California from April 15 through June 30, 2010, with each organization providing its own unique point of view on the influences of Wagner’s art and philosophy from the 19th century to the present day.     IMAGINE TOMORROW TODAY…And Then Create IT! The State of the Arts 2010 Symposium presented a unique perspective on cutting edge trends in the arts and media, and their effect on society and culture.  The symposium examined the function of art and media in society, how emerging communications and technologies are changing the arts and media, what new forms of art and media might emerge in the coming decade, and the social impact and responsibility of creating with conscious intent,  from a cross-disciplinary perspective. The State of the Arts 2010 Symposium is an annual one-day international eventdesigned to highlight the unique marriage of art, media and technology in our evolving tech-driven age and to look at the future with a perspective of how the power of Arts, Media and Entertainment can foster global change.   Some of our Panel Highlights from this year’s SOA 2010 Symposium Panel 1 – Evolution of the Arts; Past, Present & Future   SOA 2010 Symposium -Panel 1 on Prezi           Panel 2 – Arts & Media in the Digital Age   SOA 2010 Symposium – Panel 2 on Prezi      Panel 3 – Immersive and Interactive Arts   SOA 2010 Symposium – Panel 3 on Prezi      Panel 4- Conscious Creativity & Creative Activism   SOA 2010 Symposium – Panel 4 on Prezi        Panel 5 – Trans-Cultural Creation: The Global Landscape of Arts and Media   SOA 2010 Symposium – Panel 5 on Prezi    ...

WFS Conscious Evolution: The Future of Futurism

Posted on Jun 25, 2011 in Activities, Past Events

WFS Conscious Evolution: The Future of Futurism

The World Future Society 2011 Conference: Conscious Evolution: The Future of Futurism? In response to current crises and opportunities, a new worldview is arising called conscious evolution.  It connotes the evolution of evolution itself from unconscious toward conscious choice.  Through a study of recurring patterns in cosmogenesis, or the creation of new universes, we see crisis after crisis leading to innovation and transformation.  What is emerging out of the emergencies?  What new “memetic code” will shape how we communicate and shape new ideas for the new millennium?  How can we learn from the past to best shape an evolutionary future?  How can futurism help discover and communicate the chaotic systems ”optimum attractors,” toward which an evolving future might be moving? Who should attend:  Anyone interested in new approaches to foresight, innovations in evolutionary thinking, and the creative generation of innovative approaches to current crises. What you’ll learn:  How the discoveries of chaotic change and cosmology, such as the birth of worlds, might shed light on how social and economic systems are evolving in present conditions that at times appear chaotic. The dynamics of memes and other communications processes will also provide insights concerning how the future is changing, affecting all of us. How this new knowledge can be applied:  New understandings of how change occurs, especially within large systems and insights into creative approaches to foresight and future studies. Barbara Marx Hubbard, author, speaker, and evolutionary educator, and one of the original Advisory Board Members of the WFS, Santa Barbara, California Jerome C. Glenn, director, Millennium Project; co-author, 2010 State of the Future, Washington, D.C. Sandra de Castro Buffington, director, Hollywood, Health and Society (HH&S), a program of the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center, University of Southern California, Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, Los Angeles, California Kate McCallum, founder and executive director of the c3: Center for Conscious Creativity, Los Angeles,...

c3 to participate in LA city-wide Arts Festival

Posted on May 29, 2011 in Past Events

In 2010 LA Opera will produce Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle, a four part presentation of dramatic music. Just as Wagner’s originally conceived Ring festival in Bayreuth Germany involved the whole town in a celebration of the arts, the LA Opera has invited 50 arts organizations across Los Angeles to participate in this production. c3 is proud to be one of these organizations and has been encouraged to explore Wagner from a Conscious Creative perspective. c3‘s original inspiration came in part from the Florentine Camerata Society, a group of artists, philosophers and humanists, who, in the late 1500s commissioned the first opera in an effort to create a multi-dimensional transformational experience which integrated all the available art forms of the time. Similarly, Wagner set out to go beyond “opera” and art as entertainment,  to create a new kind of transformational experience with his concept of dramatic music, fully embodied in the Ring Cycle. In addition, Wagner’s myth for man expressed in the work, encourages the birth of a new human, i.e, a human who takes his rightful place as conscious creator of reality amidst the demise of the old gods and the end of the dominion of gold. Apropos themes for our times and for the core mission of c3. We are excited about this opportunity and have begun brainstorming on how we can explore a 21st century vision of Gesamtkunstwerk – Wagner’s German word meaning “total work of art,” describing the integration of all the currently available arts. As the opera commences the first two productions of the series, we are looking forward to this spectacle unfolding.  In these times of perceived scarcity and fear based thinking, we believe it is particularly important to focus on the power of creativity, abundantly available all around...
