Each student will prepare and present an overview of an assigned arts organization or initiative with an aesthetic or expressive approach to its work. Drawing on information from the organization/initiative website, news and related resources, and whatever images and media you can muster, you will deliver a five-slide (plus bibliography), 10-minute presentation to the class, with the following components:
- SLIDE 1: TITLE
Title/logo/key image capturing the essence of the enterprise.
- SLIDE 2: SUMMARY
Short summary of their work or vision.
- SLIDE 3: TIDBITS
“Things worth noticing” about how they organize or approach their work.
- SLIDE 4: CONVENTIONS
Conventions they work within, push against, or seek to stretch (these can be related to technique or quality, process, content, discipline/genre, business model, or any other convention you think worth mentioning).
- SLIDE 5: RESOURCES
Required resources, and how they gather them (people, money, and stuff).
- SLIDE 6: BIBLIOGRAPHY (not presented, but included)
A list of the sources you used to prepare your presentation (doesn’t have to be pretty…just a legible bibliography-style list).
