Slover Linett has long worked with museums and arts presenters based on college and university campuses. But until recently we hadn’t helped a major educational institution look at the big picture: What roles can the arts and creativity play in the life of a great university, not just in campus culture and community service but also in the core missions of teaching, learning, and research? Working with our senior consultant Nick Rabkin, we helped a committee of deans, faculty, and administrators from the sciences, engineering, humanities, and arts at Cornell delve into that question and envision a future of deep arts integration throughout the university. The resulting strategic roadmap offered recommendations for innovations and investments in curricular collaboration, visiting artists, public art, “bottom up” arts facilities, and other areas. That report was approved by the university’s leadership.

Stay tuned for the public posting of that report, and if you’d like to receive a notice when it’s released please email project director Cory Garfin.

2. Laughter isn't the opposite of seriousness; it's the most profound way to get serious about something. And it opens the doors wider.

"...giggle your way in. It's not the normal way to do it, but if you can, you bring a much bigger group."

Two deep lessons about public engagement from @rkrulwich, looking back on 15 years co-hosting @Radiolab:

1. What really draws people in isn't mostly the "content"; it's the human warmth and joy of the hosts. ("When two people are having real fun, it's sort of like a warm fire.")

Like I’ve been saying... Love what you’re stirring in the #classicalmusic pot, Aubrey. And I would add: human-centered research is a crucial element of the experimentation process - how we learn with (not just about) #audiences.

I get asked all the time about what we can change in orchestra administration culture, and my answer is always the same.

Embrace experimentation.

If we focus too much on short term goals, we don't try new things, leaving bold ideas on the table that could deliver huge results.
