*DON'TJOINTHEM* "The more #artists support ambition to be part of the status quo, the more we support the limiting structures set by the status quo" great insight from #artist @camp_networking in response to my provocation. Image
"Organisations to make #artists regular agenda item, to get beyond who are we going to work with but how can we support #artists / include #artists in our organisational make-up beyond the programme"
"Diversity as JOYFUL and VULNERABLE space/place to share/understand/learn/change"

Having studied a music degree, then #opera in London, I realise the #LNP would consider my training a waste of life. And in a way, it was, if my only metric was financial or employment. But wouldn't change a thing. I have travelled all over the world, sung for royalty...
I've been fortunate to experience a career in the arts, to inspire joy & passion in others with sound... just my voice, my body, my *breath*. I've recreated voices Mozart once heard in his head. Do you know how it feels to sing Strauss over a massive orchestra? I do.
I've wept in dressing rooms because two tiny folds of cartilage in my throat wouldn't do what I wanted. I've struggled with colds on opening nights, sacrificed my social life, battled my weight... studied, listened, learned my craft obsessively to be as good as I could be.

#Taldiacomavui de 1452 va néixer prop de Florència una llegenda: Leonardo da #Vinci. Geni universal i home renaixentista per excel·lència, Da Vinci practicà totes (totes!) les #arts. Se li atribueix el disseny (1519) d'aquesta espatarrant escala al Château de #Chambord, a França.
El Château de #Chambord (1519-47) es començà a construir tot just un mes després que #Leonardo morís, però els estudiosos coincideixen en dir que el #disseny del castell i de les escales és seu. Tanmateix, l'arquitecte que finalment n'executà el projecte fou Domenico da #Cortona.
Per a verificar que el #disseny de l'escala és de Da #Vinci, els estudiosos fan servir els llibres que contenen els molts dibuixos que féu #Leonardo (fins a 13.000 pàgines!...). En un d'aquests, al Còdex #Arundel, hi ha el croquis d'una escala de cargol igual que la de #Chambord.

1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

Thread ⬇️
2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

A thread on process? Organizing #ZoraAcademic Conference is a group activity. Building on @zorafestival commitment to #humanities and the #arts. I work with @scotfrench, Trent Tomengo (@SeminoleState), @clarissawhite and others. @WorldProfessor @Prof_Kennedy
@zorafestival @scotfrench @SeminoleState @clarissawhite @WorldProfessor @Prof_Kennedy This is a year long process linked to five year vision. The Zorafestival20# is first year of new cycle. The turn toward #Afrofuturism at @zorafestival
give @k8dee16, @Hardcore888 & @3Isiah opportunity to speak to the public. @WorldProfessor @Prof_Kennedy
@zorafestival @scotfrench @SeminoleState @clarissawhite @WorldProfessor @Prof_Kennedy @k8dee16 @Hardcore888 @3Isiah This year's theme has always been "What is Afrofuturism?" internally. The programming across the festival spaces is an answer. The festival bring a black speculative past and future into dialogue. @scotfrench @Prof_Kennedy @WorldProfessor #zorafestival20 #zorafest2020

Rant incoming.

Anyone can do #marketing.

This is a true statement. Anyone can do marketing. Other true statements.

Anyone can cook.
Anyone can draw.
Anyone can plumb a bathroom.

But would you rather spend the time learning to do it properly or pay someone who knows what
they are doing so you can concentrate on what you know how to do best?

#marketing is a skill that a lot of people claim to have but few people actually master. Most of marketing is actually planning. I find more actual marketers are project managing campaigns than they are
rather than posting things to social media.

#marketing is not selling, but it does touch on some of the same skills. A good marketer will show your product or service in a way that gets people interested, making the job of your sales team that much easier.

Any can make a sale.

How do we re-imagine our Educational Institutions?

History is important...#PostcardsFromALAIGBO

An old but very relevant piece by Obi Nwakanma

1/ "As a result of Azikiwe’s own ideas of the university, he pushed for the establishment of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka,.."
2/ "Zik passed the charter of the University through the Eastern Nigeria House in 1955. The University of Nigeria, Nsukka was established in 1955, but it opened its gates for the first 280 students on Oct 7, 1960, just one week on the attainment of Nigeria’s independence..."
3/ "Aside from Azikiwe, the next most important figure in the establishment of University of Nigeria was Dr. I.U. Akpabio, Minister for education in the government Azikiwe led in the East. Akpabio & Zik traveled around seeking funds across the world for the proper establishment."

Ingenious Trickery – Draft National Education Policy 2019 velivada.com/2019/08/21/ing…
Excuse me for the Self Retweet...
The reverse counting has begun to pass this dangerous law. #Nep2019
नई शिक्षा नीति 2019 लागू की जाती है तो यह सरे आम होगा...

डॉ कस्तुरीरंगन समिति की स्पष्ट सिफारिश है कि शिक्षण संस्थानों को पूर्ण स्वायत्तता दी जाए.
और शिक्षा को फिलान्थ्रोफी के माध्यम से निजी संस्थानों को सौंप दिया जाए.

[Day1: Strategic SciComm Through Play]
Often times, when talking #SciComm #SciOut #PubEng #SciEng #SciEdu #SciArt, we spend a lot of discussions on the idea of play + joy + fun for target audiences.

As a practitioner, do use "play" to get better in your practice? If not, why?
Do opportunities & spaces to "PLAY" with your craft/skills in communicating #science even exist for you?

For academics, the lack of opportunity to learn+practice+play w/ public speaking significantly impacts careers, like favoritism of "charismatic ppl" to bad teaching habits.
In the #Arts + #SciArt, rehearsals + practice time is crucial in honing your craft.
In #MuseumEd & #projectdevelopment, there are stages for prototyping, focus grouping, beta-testing to "play".

In #Academia, prof dev workshops exist, but do you have a space for practice?

I want to create a thread of poems. Anyone interested in joining in? #Poetry #Poem #poetrycommunity #Friday #SpokenWord #artists
Self Pity.

A dusty path,
But there are cleaner routes,
Yet, you chose to be soiled with earth,
Standing mocked before elites,
Your confidence muffled by a swathe of flies,
Your nose piling up unused water that dripped down your jaw.

You chose to be robbed of choice.
Ambiguity

The mother of errors,
Always unknown,
Muddling right in a wrongful way,
Pointing evil in an unstoppable direction,
It never meant harm,
But brings blood to the table,
How did it nestle all alone?
Waving to no-one in motion?

As a child, how would you have liked moving schools in new cities with different cultures every 2-4 years?

Growing up in the #IndianArmy, I absolutely loved it! By the time I was 18, we had moved over 9 times across 9 states! #Diversity #India #TravelTuesday #IWS #VoicesIWS
My #memories of #India include sunny days, welcoming people, rich heritage, vibrant colors, abundant fruits and mouth-watering street food! #IWS #VoicesIWS

I'll introduce myself! I've always been involved in the #arts from studying in @NCAD_Dublin to hanging exhibitions in #naas & producing an arts show for radio on @kfmradio. I just thrive in an arts environment so working in the theatre seemed like a logical side shuffle
I first started working in @moattheatre when Manager Kathleen needed help in the Box Office one day ten years ago. She hasn’t let me leave since! I became assistant manager & when Kathleen retired in August, I applied for her job. We still talk every day & she’s here right now!
We call her #MotherMoat. 🥰😍❤️ I’ll introduce you to the rest of the team over the course of the week. We’ll call this #MeetTheMoaters

1...#QCHistoryEngages On why I chose an MA in Library Science and History - My love of History was not sparked from a single visit to a museum, but rather continuous interactions with educational institutions.
2...My first memory of such a place was a visit to the @FloridaMuseum in Gainesville. The two exhibits I recall from the trip were displays on #bats and #dinosaurs, two things many 8 year olds enjoy. Still have the bat book from the trip.
3...My parents would always encourage visits to the #library as I had an interest for reading from a young age (not sure how they inspired that from the beginning - gladtheydid). This turned into an opportunity for me to discover new topics such as astronomy and other sciences.
