Philosophy of Operations

BIG IDEA & QUESTION: WHAT IF - "behind" all of these project ideas (deepsoul/Peace Arts) we created a nonprofit research company called: "Renaissance Research" (#RRA <-TwitterHashtag) is available!) Renaissance Research would be a "Research and Development Hub" - Focused on doing Collaborative Research and Journalism to aggregate Strategic Knowledge and Social Capital flows to be used for the development of renaissance minded, kingdom hearted social transformation initiatives. Renaissance Research could easily become our "calling card" in approaching various organizations re: collaboration and sponsership. THEN... all of the DNA work could be slotted into RR. ie: "The DNA Process" could an Renaissance Research strategy model.


DNA Social Transformation Model

Renaissance Research Agency develops the DNA Social Transformation Model as an 'end to end' strategy designed to integrate culture and leadership research with renaissance minded social entrepreneurship.

Potential values (needs clarification):

building this project

Do we need a shared platform for

Verifying the hypothesis (exploring the relationships between institution & Artist)... Pilgrim principle vs. Indigineous Principle within the context of young adults, urban arts and culture? Where does the theology of these two missiological points of View begin and lead us? (is redemption replacement or fulfillment?) Art & Spirituality... Critical reasoning & Urban art & cultural leadership Where do artists find themselves (their own identities) across these tensions?

Understanding Urban Culture Trends in relation to the church

Gather Value for other artists (they hear that they aren't alone... they share gathered resources and vision - etc...)

Make their voice visible and portable: Portable Visibility...

Visual Language of Postmodern Culture...

What is the ramification of understanding - these festivals as "true to the city"? Hypothesis: Toronto is a deeply spiritual city... What is that? Where does it begin and end? Little City Toronto vs. Big City Toronto... What are our perceptions of the City? How are our perceptions shaped by our projections? Finding Place - question of where is home? The role and Effect of Nested Institutions on creating and contextualizing definitions and expectations of place, home, and community for Artists...
