training in brain development that are important to literacy in a digital age.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->D. <!--[endif]-->Basic
opportunity in NEO

<!--[if !supportLists]-->e) <!--[endif]-->Need people and school offers people.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->f) <!--[endif]-->Critical Mass: Cleveland has great little institutes
and little groups but they are all competing for the same small slice of a pie;
not forming a critical mass and becoming more regional/national.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->e) <!--[endif]-->Imagine having all fields of arts with representatives

<!--[if !supportLists]-->A. <!--[endif]-->Challenge
Cleveland faces is broadening
perspective away from a hierarchical mentality.

is a fundamental legacy of the industrial era.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2. <!--[endif]-->Industrial
era was about large organizations taking control of resources and generating

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3. <!--[endif]-->This
has created a civic culture of hierarchy.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->B. <!--[endif]-->Still
see hierarchical mentality which stifles new ideas and maintains control.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->D. <!--[endif]-->Cleveland
Author “The Experience Economy�, Jim Gilmore

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1. <!--[endif]-->Saying
that creating an experience is what consumers are expecting.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2. <!--[endif]-->Through
time we are creating more value as we move toward experience based economy.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3. <!--[endif]-->Re-thinking
our UC assets, we can think of “room full of art� as an opportunity to create
learning; create training.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->4. <!--[endif]-->Frank
and Gerome are asking us to infuse creativity into our education. How do we do

<!--[if !supportLists]-->5. <!--[endif]-->How
many times have you seen ideas trashed because they were not invented in their
backyard. This is why people become discouraged and they leave.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->E. <!--[endif]-->Creative
Arts Industry

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1. <!--[endif]-->Need
to think things through in a new way, because of the legacy of huge boards and

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2. <!--[endif]-->Go
to Paris or to Florence,
you buy one ticket that gains you entry into many theaters; selling an

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3. <!--[endif]-->We
will need to look at relationships in a new way.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->4. <!--[endif]-->What
would it be like if you had a virtual campus as opposed to just one physical

<!--[if !supportLists]-->F. <!--[endif]-->Frank
belongs to a network group of 15 people. There are only 5 who really actively
participate actively in group.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1. <!--[endif]-->Idea
of center not to take resources away from other institutions; willing to let
them partner under one roof for synergy.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2. <!--[endif]-->Tri-C
Jazz Fest is example of collaborative success. This extends beyond the Jazz
Fest at Playhouse Square,
encouraging people to go other places to experience Jazz. Good example of

for the arts under one roof.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->G. <!--[endif]-->Comment

to participate are difficult because of the issue of critical mass.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1. <!--[endif]-->Looking
to programs impacting more children per dollar.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2. <!--[endif]-->Funding
drives are now collaborative, where they were not so in the past.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3. <!--[endif]-->Looking
to provide arts infused program for every child in the city of Cleveland.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->4. <!--[endif]-->This
program is not being disseminated because of outside power struggles.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->5. <!--[endif]-->Suggestion
made to use existing factory or other building along Euclid
Corridor and leverage that resource as opposed to building a giant new center.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->6. <!--[endif]-->Norm
commented that the Richmond Brothers
has enough critical mass
to find use for physical spaces to serve technical communities or artistic

<!--[if !supportLists]-->7. <!--[endif]-->REALNEO
is about creating social network that gets away from the rigid social hierarchy
that is the legacy of the industrial age.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->8. <!--[endif]-->Looking
at networking model, see progress taking place logarithmically, rather than the
linear progression associated with conventional hierarchical social systems.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->9. <!--[endif]-->Paul
is economic development director for Cuyahoga

<!--[if !supportLists]-->a) <!--[endif]-->Had enough money for 9 grants and had 60 applications.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->b) <!--[endif]-->Do not need more space, but need more cooperation
between the various entities. Tom Shore
has been responsible for strongly promoting arts in area.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->c) <!--[endif]-->Follow-up: Does
Arts Cleveland High
teach arts to depth that Poise does? Not
to that degree. Poise has far wider range of pathways.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->H. <!--[endif]-->Ed
asked if a follow-up session should be held where we take 2-3 hours to take an
in-depth look at strategies to carry on this discussion further.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1. <!--[endif]-->Ed
said it may take 2-3 weeks to get this together.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2. <!--[endif]-->Would
like to learn more about what Cleveland Public Schools are doing.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3. <!--[endif]-->What
are some of the specific initiatives we can pursue to push this process forward
at a faster pace.
