Discussion & Images SPENCER TUNICK,Installation Artist Oct 28, 2009 Creativity is key when it comes to convening hundreds or even thousands of volunteers and inviting them to collaborate in order to reconfigure society’s views of nudity and privacy. Artist Spencer Tunick has been documenting the live nude figure in public, with photography and video, since 1992. His installations encompass dozens, hundreds or thousands of volunteers; and his photographs are records of these events. These grouped masses which do not underscore sexuality become abstractions that challenge or reconfigure one’s view of nudity and privacy. The work also refers to the complex issue of presenting art in permanent or temporary public spaces.

Now based in Trinity, Donna Butt’s Rising Tide Theatre was and still is a centre-piece of diverse and supportive entities which come together to highlight the uniqueness of Canada as a nation. And this nation, through the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, has a lot to offer in the way of original entertainment based on a past that is exciting, tragic and riveting.

Join strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship, and creativity educator Ajay Agrawal for a synthesis of the day’s collaborative ideas and innovations.
Open-Access Science ALED EDWARDS Chief Executive of the Structural Genomics Consortium, Banbury Chair of Medical Research in the Banting and Best Dept. of Medical Research at the University of Toronto & PEKKA SINERVO, Senior V.P. Research, Canadian Institute for Advanced Research in Conversation with ILSE TREUNICHT MaRS CEO Oct 28, 2009 Director and CEO of the Structural Genomics Consortium (Canada, Sweden, England) and structural biologist Aled Edwards is a passionate advocate of open-access collaboration in science. Backed by extensive international government, industry and charitable funding, the Consortium’s research describing the precise 3D structures of proteins associated with human disease is quickly made public in an open-access online format. The idea is to allow the best brains worldwide to fully probe — and, more often than not, rule out — potential drug targets in order to “de-risk” what he describes as our current costly and inefficient approach to early-stage drug discovery.

But is this something easily emulated or is it the unique history of the laneways and Melbournian’s relationship to them that is the real reason behind their success?
