There is a link to one of my posts at the "Regional Communities -- Think Local Planet, Act Regionally Website," which does a weekly list of links to blogs and articles about regional thinking. Tom Christoffel, the blogmeister, describes the purpose of this blog: ""Think local planet, act regionally" is a paradigm that balances "Think globally, act locally." More and more, it takes a region, a "community of communities" to solve problems. This is an exploration of emerging regional communities. "Community precedes cooperation." This is my thesis. It comes from over 30 years of working for regional cooperation. Community teams and teaming are collaborative methods for facilitating cooperation without attempting to eliminate competition." If you are looking to expand your conception of the theatre tribe beyond simply an artistic concern, I recommend checking in with Tom!
