Arts & Ideas Monograph Templates
We are soft-launching three new Arts Monograph templates for artists, writers and causes.
We’ve set up artist monograph templates, hooked them into our editorial management system and created a crowdfunding site underneath it all.
We are truly public media for arts and ideas — enabling artists, places and causes to publish and fund arts and ideas worldwide.
Help spread the word.
Here are three examples:
http://edition.artsandideas.co/ — for photo essays
http://salon.artsandideas.co/ — for artist stories
http://folio.artsandideas.co/ — for arts & ideas writers.
More arts publishing on the way.

Caracas Gym, Goes Up, Literally
Urban-Think Tank’s Vertical Gym is a prefabricated kit of parts, adaptable to any locale. The base of the structure is superimposed upon an existing community basketball court, soccer field, or vacant lot, transforming it into a multi-level sports complex that can accommodate hundreds of people at a time. In this way the design maximizes the potential of any city space, particularly areas with a dense urban fabric.
Digital Future of Togetherness
According to a report published March 11 by PEW Research, the future of the internet is shiny, everywhere (almost) transparent, inside us…
The future of the connectedness it brings is also a social and physical thing. It will alter our sense of place and our place in it…
In addition, because we eat, consume, use up and hoard resources, interconnectedness will also alert us to increasing disparity. Nicole Ellison gets and states the importance of connecting with each other — of care — and of bravely engaging the ethics of connectedness — as we get closer…

Supplies Unchained: Misfit Economy
What relationship does the laptop you are using, or the food you eat have to its supplies or sources? Chances are it has passed through untaxed or mined quasi-legally; that banana, though ripe and yellow has been touched by the gray economy.
From Misfit.org: Globalization has linked distant mines, factories, and ports to each other and to retailers of all sizes, from megastores to mom and pop shops. Much of the world’s merchandise ends up—legally or illegally—in the informal economy, traded by street vendors to end users.
The infographic offers a peek into this world — the world of informal economies everyone is contributing to, daily.

Door of Yes Return: Art & Ouidah, Benin
From Fondation Zinsou:
On the occasion of the inauguration of its new museum of Ouidah, the Zinsou Foundation presents a selection of works from its collection of contemporary art. This first exhibition includes works by both local and international artists Romuald Hazoumé, Cyprien Tokoudagba, Frédéric Bruly-Bouabré, Lilanga George, Samuel Fosso, Seni Awa Camara, Jean-Dominique Burton, Bruce Clarke, Chéri Samba, Mickäel Bethe Selassie , Aston, Kifouli Dossou and Solly Cissé.
From Global Times:
First sub-Saharan Africa museum dedicated exclusively to contemporary African art
Until last year, the few tourists who visited the small west African town of Ouidah were likely headed to the Gateway of No Return, a massive monument to the area’s bleak history as a slave trading hub. But the town may soon become known for an attraction of an entirely different sort: the first sub-Saharan Africa museum dedicated exclusively to contemporary African art.

Teddy Cruz: Border Politics of Imagination
Political Equator 3
South of the border informal creative capacity — that which adapts to socio-economic and geo-political limits (read scarcity)— outpaces north of a border consumer capacity … Which border is that?
