I am an arts manager trying to explore the intersection of data analytics and arts, media and culture.
My questions lead me to look critically, and sometimes emotionally, at the traditional thru contemporary performing arts, crafts, story-telling, culinary and visual arts, including ways to present them.
As I peer at these ongoing pursuits, I could see the patterns, ideologies and barriers that are emerging and breaking constantly and exploring possibilities to break the biases. It has been a work-in-progress to question, learn and unlearn constantly.
