Hundreds rally to protest arts funding cuts (http://ajc.com)

"A $17.8 billion state budget passed by the Georgia House last week would wipe out the arts council, which supports the arts statewide, administers grants and maintains the State Art Collection. Before the House voted to eliminate the arts agency, Gov. Sonny Perdue's fiscal 2011 budget cut arts funding to $890,735, down from $2.52 million this year. Georgia could be the only state without an arts council recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts, unless the Senate restores funding cut by the House." The protest brought out drum circles, circle dancing and puppeteers? They're just making a case to CUT funding, not keep it.

INCITE! Journal of Experimental Media & Radical Aesthetics
Part Pittsburgh, part Oberlin, all awesome. "INCITE! Journal of Experimental Media & Radical Aesthetics is a new publication dedicated to the discourse, culture, and community of experimental film, video, and new media. Merging handmade and online platforms, this hybrid publication addresses the lack of critical attention afforded film and media artists working today. In addition to scholarly articles, INCITE! publishes aesthetic statements, manifestos, artist projects, multiples, archival documents, interviews, reviews, and hastily drawn plans. Stationing ourselves at the cross-flow of research, scholarship, and creation, we encourage personal writing, critical poetics, and radical approaches to film and media."
