The STATE OF THE ARTS 2011: Producing Change event took place in Los Angeles on Thursday, September 15th. This event was produced by the c3: Center for Conscious Creativity, the Producers Guild of America and The Millennium Project with the support of Los Angeles Center Studios, SNCR and Vortex Immersion Media, to support the work of the global Art and Media Node. Jerome Glenn and Chair of the Global Arts and Media Node, Kate McCallum ran an experimental think tank with a group of several prominent content creators, artists, scientists, academics and others interested in socially beneficial story and creativity which was live streamed to a global audience. The purpose of the think tank was to create a forum for a discussion about how artists and mediamakers can collaborate with the futurists and the work of The Millennium Project to inspire awareness and transformation around the 15 global challenges of The Millennium Report. The evening program featured a presentation by Jerome Glenn on the work of The Millennium Project followed by a panel of creatives who are using technology and art for Philanthropic good. Node members Klaus Hassis from Germany and Dana Klinasin from New York were also present.
