To what end?

Just the other day our Art Department Faculty had a great discussion about the intention and audience of the GCVA blog. Who should be writing? who should and is listening? Is it is being used to the best of its capabilities? And a whole host of other questions.  One question was brought up that I thought needed to be posted. This is what do you think? You as the viewer and our audience should let us know what you think. What changes if any do you want to see on the blog?

In terms of audience, I think the blog can be open to all art students to read, write, and comment.

Changes: use it for tagging, critiquing, and sharing work. But I don't know how that would work technologically.

Any other ideas from students, alum, friends?

I enjoy reading as an alum. I think more student articles or comments would be a good addition!

For the critique of work, students could upload personal work or work from classes, and ask for feedback from other students, alum as well as faculty. Not sure how, but maybe more promotion of the blog. I know i check everyday, but I don't see a lot of comments... more traffic would be nice. weather the teachers make it a requirement to start or not.

Regardless, I LOVE it, it lets me keep in touch, and see what's going on!

I love reading the blog as an alumna because it keeps me up to date on what's going on in the art department. It also gives me some good info. about things going on in the art world!

it keeps us connected, wherever we may be at any given time, as HD and Angelina hinted, keeps the discussions somewhat close - reading from the students abroad is very helpful, in that sense, too. Many issues get raised, you may take them up right away, or at the later time, or not at all, but along the way all eventually register, to me anyway. As an addition, perhaps a feature such as sharing more about the semesterend projects (not to be confused with the reproduction of actual works) either as an extensions of their critiques or for providing an interstice for studio overlaps in general--
