Umberto Crenca,
Title: A 'Compost Theory' of Arts and Culture

Multimedia artist Umberto Crenca is the founding artistic director of AS220, a Providence, RI-based nonprofit arts organization that serves as a national model for arts and culture-based community building and urban renewal. Crenca will provide an overview of the remarkable success and continued relevance of AS220 and will discuss his “compost theory” of arts and culture: a means to an end or a means to a means? This theory is about creating nurturing environments that create opportunities where anyone can realize there full creative potential without trying to predict outcomes.
