Edgar Arceneaux the director of The Watts House Project in Los Angeles will lead a workshop with the Art and Social Practice MFA students on financing in relationship to mission driven art initiatives, framing the discussion as "New Financial Architectures for Creative Communities." As part of the workshop he will be looking at organizations in relationship to the individual soul. He will be pre-sending an audio file to the students that is an analysis of Plato's Republic. The dialogues within the various districts of Plato's virtual city were metaphors for understanding the human soul. Arceneaux's will attempt to organize the social body in relationship to the understanding of the forces that rule the individual body.
