JHU and MICA Collaborative Symposium

Techne, the integrated practice of art and science, is the subject of an upcoming symposium that will bring together experts from the Maryland Institute College of Art and Johns Hopkins.

The New Techne symposium, scheduled for April 8 and 9, seeks to advance opportunities for joint research and projects between the two institutions in such emergent fields as biomedical engineering, telematics, hypermedia, data imaging, intelligent systems, generative art and other hybrid areas. It also will speak to the collaboration between the scientist and the artist in the dissemination of research data critical to scientific and artistic inquiry. Presentations will showcase current projects of MICA and JHU faculty, while panel discussions will involve theoretical discourse around emergent practice based on general topics related to collaborative practice, research and teaching.

Sponsored by the Intel Corporation, the symposium is presented by MICA and JHU and organized by the MICA Center for New Media and the JHU Digital Media Center.

Project Clean Stream 2004

As part of Project Clean Stream, the region's largest coordinated clean-up effort of streams and watersheds, multiple sites in Wyman Park will be targeted along with 30 sites within the Jones Falls watershed. Project Clean Stream is sponsored this year by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay in cooperation with area watershed organizations, Baltimore City DPW, Baltimore County DEPRM and the Irvine Nature Center.

Last year, more than 80 sites were identified and cleaned by over 1,200 volunteers; this year, organizers have identified more than 100 sites and are hoping for even more volunteer involvement. This year's effort will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 3. All equipment (gloves, bags and first aid kits) will be provided for volunteers.

For more information about volunteering, contact Emily Ellickson-Brown at 410-261-3515 or
