IdeaLab @ IAO

In Visual Art on August 22, 2011 at 8:40 pm

IdeaLab is a monthly series of salons/round tables/panels/discussions presented by Individual Artists of Oklahoma. The mission of IdeaLab is to:

Create programs that promote cognitive diversity resulting in the expression of new ideas. This is accomplished by provoking interaction and conversation between varied communities and disciplines using experimental methods and formats.

The first IdeaLab takes place on September 27th and will feature Rob Sturma (poet), Wayne Wyrick (astronomer), Blair Humphreys (urban designer) and Jonathan Roberts (nonprofit leader) answering the question What’s Next? in their field. After each speaker talks for 12 minutes the conversation will be opened to all attendees. Hopefully this will be an opportunity for new connections and the shrinking of Oklahoma City.

I will discuss IdeaLab more in later posts. The planning has been a broad based collaborative effort and anyone who wishes to have input on future events is welcome to participate.
