Global Cities are growing at an amazing place and are changing the ways in which we live, work, play, and relate to each other. The term Smart Cities describes a movement to apply new technological developments towards the development of these cities, but does doing so create a city that we actually want to live in? This presentation will address the role of culture and artists in creating a dynamic "place" and the role that Museums might play in promoting a cultural dialog within their local communities

11. THE DARK SIDE OF SMART CITIES Negotiating the circumstances of everyday life in any true city tends over time to create a broad-minded, feisty, opinionated personality type we'd have no problem recognizing, wherever and whenever it appears in human history. City people may well be tolerant of diversity not out of any personal commitment to a utopian politics, but because that's just what the daily necessity of living cheek-by-jowl with people who are different imposes upon you. And yet it's just this set of characteristics that so many smart-city provisions seem hell-bent on undermining, or even eradicating. The ability to search the space of the city for the perfectly congenial set of circumstances, to tune the environment until we never have to leave the contours of our own comfort: where the making of city-dwellers and citizens is concerned, that's a bug, not a feature. It erodes the development of savoir faire; it eliminates the risk, but also everything wonderful, that arises in the confrontation with difference. Adam Greenfield, The Dark Side of the “Smart City” Interview by Annalee Newitz on IO9. January 30, 2014

15. CITIES NEED CREATIVE PEOPLE cited by 1500 CEO’s as the single most crucial factor for future success IBM, 2010

16. The future [of knowledge] is to let ‘the machines’ do the heavy lifting and for us humans to focus on connecting the dots, discovering context, meaning and relevance, and to make human sense of it all. THE FUTURE OF KNOWLEDGE Gerd Leonhard. The Future of Knowledge. Jan 7, 2014

17. … right-brain thinking becomes extremely valuable, once again, as empathy, improvisation and interdependent thinking become the new standard. Knowledge, becomes not an asset used for control or dominance, but for contribution and co-creation. THE FUTURE OF KNOWLEDGE Gerd Leonhard. The Future of Knowledge. Jan 7, 2014

18. Almost all Nobel laureates in the sciences actively engage in arts as adults. They are twenty-five times as likely as the average scientist to sing, dance, or act; seventeen times as likely to be a visual artist; twelve times more likely to write poetry and literature; eight times more likely to do woodworking or some other craft; four times as likely to be a musician; and twice as likely to be a photographer.
