365 Ways to Sustain Culture & 54

I have a new and profoundly fun challenge.  Let's post  365 Ways to Sustain Culture.

This challenge was inspired at the NJ Council of the Arts Multi-Day Artist Training last month.   The Keynote speaker for Day 1, Noah Scalin, shared, that back in 2007, he heard a voice that said, "Make a Skull a Day." - and so he did for 365 Days.  He presented a slide show with remarkable creative skulls made from flower petals, a sheet, scratchboard, soysauce, wire, bottle parts. construction blocks in the middle of NY city, dance steps..... you name it. The original creations are called Skull a Day 1.0.  He is now up to Skull a Day 5.0, has exhibited in major museums, and has published books including:  A Daily Creativity Journal:  Make Something Everyday & Change Your Life.  Noah had lots of help from bloggers. I am hoping to have the same.

Noah's workshop inspired me to blog 365 ways to sustain culture.  My anticipated MA degree in Cultural Sustainability from Goucher is this Spring 2012.  My goal is to list 365 ways to sustain culture on this blog, with lots of ideas from fellow bloggers by the time I receive my MA.  That brings me to Part II the number 54.  I will be 54 this year, so my goal is to gain a minimum of 54 followers to this blog.  Please join me in this adventure, and spread the word to friends and colleagues.   Four ways to add to the list:
1) In Comments below.
2) In Comments on the 365 Ways to Sustain Culture page. (Where the list is kept)
3) E-mail me at kaabd001@goucher.edu.
4) My facebook Page.

I'll Start:  365 Ways to Sustain Culture
1)  Blog about it.

Ask someone about their culture and/or traditions...and then LISTEN.

If you're able, pay to see someone perform live.

Read a child (children) books about other cultures-and watch how their eyes light up and their interests are sparked!

The next time you take a bite of culture (whether food, music, art, language or clothing), ask yourself and/or the person who brought it to you where it came from and how they happened to come by it...

Create time and invent spaces for reflecting, breathing and sharing.
