The core ideas we want to examine: Exploring the relationship among civic news, physical and virtual communities . . . and the convergence of art with civic, participatory media . . . remain important and timely and we will be looking at ways we can collectively address them in the future. If you are interested in these ideas, please email jtm@mediagiraffe.org and we will put you on our mailing list for updates.
