It’s not a word we use loosely. Unlike some consultancies, we’re not a virtual collection of freelancers; we’re a team in every sense. We collaborate intensively on all our projects, weaving multiple perspectives, disciplines, and backgrounds together for a richer research fabric. In our Chicago office, the hum you hear is curiosity — our shared quest to understand how cultural engagement works and what it does for people, places, and communities.

Our #artsactivism friends working with & through #arts toward community, healing & justice will find Simon Woods' @OrchLeague manifesto tepid & inward, even as the #classicalmusic world finds it naively, bewilderingly progressive. Sigh.

Wonderful to call for challenging racial injustice & rethinking the "canonic European...past." But we'll need to keep peeling, because "classical music" & "orchestra" are culturally specific categories that only pretend to universality. They come from a place (Europe) and time.

@artfulmanager Yes, exactly! We're part of an NSF proposal for some Twitch research, but that's on the science side of our practice (#sciengage, #scicomm). So I echo your question about #arts orgs, #musicians and #museums. A search of Twitch channels doesn't yield much. Anyone?
