Unmuseum recommended reading: "Possibilities for Transformational Conferences" a paper by Sunrise Facilitation, a collective that met regularly in Eugene, Oregon from 2000-2006. While no longer active, the ideas and connections from it generated this paper. Formats include: appreciative inquiry, expert time vs. participatory time, fishbowls, kinetic spectrum, pause for pairs, small group sharing, speed geeking/dating, storytelling, open space, world café, and more.

...the first open-source museum collection - is a preservation repository
and online database of born-digital art. This next-generation cultural works project,
currently in the planning phase, also provides a testbed for developing innovative legal,
economic, and cultural frameworks for the digital arts.

...the museum is entirely in the public domain
(add, modify, or remove art, likewise, elements of the building).
Our goal is to reimagine definitions of art, artist,
curator, museum, culture, and open source.
This project is underway in a virtual reality called Second Life.

Organizations: THE ART OF THE UNCONFERENCE ::: Meta-Installation From Circlism to Spherism : Metamedia Cooperation III, 2007

:) EMERGING BITS AND PEACES FROM...
Metamedia Cooperation III, (2007)
Wiki : Meta Media wiki by Ward Cunningham, 12/20/2008.
"This December, 2008...was devoted to the extension of the human self... We first presented this material in 2007 at the third MetaMedia Cooperation, Eugene, Oregon."
Possibilities for Transformational Conference. (CC) NC-SA 3.0 PDF by Tree Bressen
with Debby Sugerman and Sunrise Facilitation Collective, 1/10/2008.
"....And further, we found and developed tools for participatory events that we were able to apply more fully at other happenings, such as the “Metamedia Cooperation.” What is proposed here arises out of that experience and more... We want to spread tools to help bring the new paradigm to life. With that experience in mind... "
Un-museum for the Imaginify Metamedia III by Kaliya Hamlin, Unconference Blog, 4/24/2007.
"...an amazing event that I had the honor of facilitating a small part of... been to all three annual Metamedia Cooperations so far and this one was again mind expanding... a whirl of visionary art, transformational Music, stimulating interdisciplinary academic/research and community offerings. The museum opened it self up to visionary art on the ceiling and walls and amazing music...."
Pass my congratulations on by Mary Unruh, Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts, 4/6/2007.
"...a great success. I've heard nothing but good feedback, including from people involved with the Schnitzer Museum. I think it is incredible how Metamedia has continued to grow and still maintatin the energy of the first one..."
Participant Reflection by Jack Semura, Physics, Portland State University, 3/15/2007.
"Thank you for the stimulation of Metamedia 3. The entire experience was a full spectrum of kaleidoscopic impressions. The final evening performance was deeply beautiful..."
Eugene Weekly, 3/8/2007.
"...this past weekend saw a remarkable collection of visual artists, dancers, musicians, culture scholars, filmmakers, scientists, philosophers, poets and ecologists coming together at the museum for an interactive experience called Metamedia3. The "happening," for lack of a better word, came in conjunction with the PIELC [Public Interest Environmental Law Conference], plugging art into legal activism as well. This is what a living art museum is all about: bringing a diversity of people together in creative ways through art, and planting seeds of connection and hope for the future..."
Metamedia 2007 by Diana, Myspace Blogs, 3/8/2007.
"I went to this event at the U of O called metamedia last saturday. Based on the flyer which I had picked up at a gallery I thought I was attending some sort of art show and talk about how artists and scientists are collaborating. What I found was much more than an art show, and it apparently happens annually. There were professors there from Stanford, Portland State University, the U of O, LCC, and some college in Pennsylvania I think. There were designers and scientists as well. The artists hung their art up, a collaborative installation took place, and strange airy music was played. The ideas broached there were fascinating, it was like being part of a giant think tank that was planning the future..."
Participant Reflection by Kurt Fendt, Comparative Media Studies, and Metamedia, MIT, 3/7/2007.
"It was truly a great experience and your concept of bringing a diverse group of people together to discuss a range of issues on a broader, interdisciplinary scale certainly worked very well. I met some really interesting and nice people and I hope some of the conversations will continue... Thanks again for a wonderful experience."
re: Metamedia 3 by Attendee, 3/7/2007.
"Wow... I can only imagine all the work and determination and love it took to make it happen. Of course I missed the first two MMCs but I am glad I caught this one (especially as it may be the last?). I've been working so hard these recent months with my jobs and such that I've scarcely gone out at all. But to make it to this event meant a lot to me... I felt called. "Metamedia" encompasses most everything I'm passionate about. And I fully support your vision/intention..."
Participant Reflection by Klaus Krippendorff, Communication, University of Pennsylvania, 3/6/2007.
"... it was surely not what I expected, but you predicted it to be an emergent event and it was. I enjoyed many installations and the care people took to be innovative and appealing. I enjoyed the conversations and I was glad that my 12 minute presentation triggered lots of discussions and caused many subsequent encounters..."

Year of the Circle.
message from Tom Marioni
Conceptual Artist, Sculptor, & Metamedia2 collaborator, 3/3/2007.
"100 years ago in 1907 Picasso invented cubism.
For me this year is the year of the circle or to connect with cubism, spherism.
One definition of circle is "a group of people" like my "The Act of
Drinking Beer with Friends is the Highest Form of Art", (1970).
Since 1977 we have been in a neo period.
What goes around comes around.
I am only drawing circles this year."
