[Yasmin_discussions] The Arts in the Context of Darwinian Theory of Evolution Today

We thought we would discuss for the next couple of weeks, if there is enough
interest, about the connections between the arts and the theory of

Beginning October 22 we have a 3 days conference in Aix and Marseille,
on The Arts in the Context of Darwinian Theory Today:

The first day is being organised by IMERA, the new Mediterranean Institute
for Advanced Studies,
the second day by MIM a group of Composers using Computers, and the third by
Alphabetville, two alternative arts venues at the Friche de la Belle de Mai
in Marseille. There will
be an 'evolutionary' composition in concert by MIM the third night.

SCANZ in new zealand just annouced their residencis and conference for next
jan/feb 2010 : ECOSAPIENS
and think the sense of urgence they give to the art and darwin topic is a
good way to enter into this discussion,
Arts and Culture find themselves on the front line of adapting the the rapid
changes of the next 50 years.

Extinction or adaptation? Evolution or Revolution? What are we facing?
The complexity and urgency of the crises of today calls for us to engage
together in new ways. Deep shifts in our consciousness may be required for
long-term cultural changes to occur.

for those of you that dont like email list discussions we have set up a
number of other blogs
to enable debate and discussion for both those who will be in marseille and
those who wont.
(see below)

Yasminers who may be in Aix en Provence the evening of October 21 wednesday
before the start of the colloquim are invited to join us for dinner in Aix=
