About the Show

What happens when a dying town's civic leaders decide they have to change the way their citizens think about the future? If you're Linz, Austria, you create Ars Electronica. Its artistic director, Gerfried Stocker, is here to tell us the amazing story of the impact the festival and the projects it has spawned have had on the city of Linz. Gerfried is a media artist who has worked on installations and performance projects in the field of interaction, robotics and telecommunications.

Also with us is Ann Daly, an arts consultant based in Austin, Texas, who has advice on where new audiences for the arts can be found. Ann Daly Arts Consulting provides strategic advice on making, funding, and serving the arts. Ann is the author of three books on performing and visual arts and has served as cultural commentator for the New York Times, Village Voice and Chronicle of Higher Education.

And we'll have part two of our interview with Keith Schneider of the Michigan Land Use Institute.

Changing how citizens think about the future, this week on Smart City.
