"Junction Arts is a participatory arts organisation based in Shirebrook in the district of Bolsover, North East Derbyshire.

Nina Wenhart's blog on the prehysteries of new media

"this blog is nina wenhart's collection of resources on the various histories of new media art. it consists mainly of non or very little edited material i found flaneuring on the net, sometimes with my own annotations and comments, sometimes it's also textparts i retyped from books that are out of print.

it is also meant to be an additional resource of information and recommended reading for my students of the prehystories of new media class that i teach at the school of the art institute of chicago in fall 2008.

the focus is on the time period from the beginning of the 20th century up to today."

How Open Innovation can help you cope in lean times

"In a challenging business climate, focus is crucial. But companies face a real dilemma: how to maintain that focus and manage costs tightly while keeping growth options alive for the future. Deferring or canceling less promising initiatives that might have been pursued in good times allows a business to survive and eventually thrive again. Many companies give attention and resources only to the projects that are most likely to generate near–term profits, and they end up deciding quickly which initiatives fit best with the company's core business. It's a smart short–term strategy.

The downside of rigorous prioritization, however, is that it halts many potentially promising projects at an early point in their development and leaves them stranded inside the company. Over time, so many projects get abandoned that the company's ability to grow beyond its core business is threatened. If focus is maintained for too long or with too much rigidity, it can become the enemy of growth. When the market recovers, the company lacks a foundation from which to rebound."

(Henry W. Chesbrough & Andrew R. Garman, December 2009, Harvard Business School Publishing)

Creative Futures: building the creative economy through universities

"Whereas PDP takes a wide approach to employability by concentrating on generic skills, other institutional practices take a more focused approach to employability that allows students to engage and 'learn by doing'. These practices exhibit a range of emphases and variety in their approach. The development of active learning, where students participate actively in their education rather than being audiences or empty vessels, is now firmly established in those universities with the highest profile in creative industries. The historical development of these universities is located within teaching and research environments that blend studio and workshop approaches with scholarly enquiry.

These environments encourage individual creativity within social settings. They typically encourage experimentation and risk–taking in a structured and safe environment. They provide disciplinary knowledge not for its own sake but 'to develop capabilities'. Universities involved in educating for the creative economy should not simply 'inculcate a body of knowledge, but ... develop [among students] the capability to act responsibly towards others, to take initiative and to work creatively and collaboratively' (Charles Leadbeater, 1999). The model promoted by universities which have been at the forefront of supporting the creative economy embeds research – often in the form of live projects – into all levels of undergraduate and taught postgraduate study. For these universities the linkage of teaching and research provides an essential basis for professional employment."
