Every week or so, I send out an “event” to consulting clients that might serve as a taking off point for conversation. These are loosely assembled pieces of research on a particular topic that come in the form of exhibition releases, video or audio lectures or conversations, articles, written works, pieces of music, etc. with subject matter including but not limited to art, music, performance, literature, culture, neuroscience and creativity.
