Modern Dance, Canada Council News, Internet Gender and Summer Reading

Four disparate things, but I figure it’s Friday so it might be nice to graze.

From the Huff Post – What the Heck Is Modern Dance? – a question many have asked and I think this article is a good answer. “Sometimes it would seem audiences are afraid of modern dance because it’s not evident what it’s about, or what you’re supposed to get walking away from it.”

A week after Compass changes (four deadlines a year to two) the Canada Council Flying Squad is doing some reviewing of  its own.
I tweeted this yesterday:
OAC Compass deadlines down to two from four, now Canada Council Flying Squad Oct. deadline “on hold for program evaluation.” hmmm…

and a colleague responded:
@sueedworthy Result of flat-lined funding for the Councils. Will be same $$ for 6 years for most companies which means 15% behind inflation.

If that’s the case, I liked the phrasing in the press release: “With our financial situation stable for the next three years, we can move forward with this review as part of our ongoing efforts to ensure our programs continue to be relevant, cost-effective and responsive to the changing needs of the community.”

New book in the Summer Reading Section!

And finally – infographics! If you’re segmenting your marketing efforts in a boy-girl-boy kind of way,  this is kind of neat.  From informationisbeautiful.net.
