FOOTPRINT OF NATIONS
The 2004 Footprint of Nations concludes that the world's
wealthiest nations are mortgaging the future at the expense
of today's children, the poor, and the long-term health of the Earth.
Through excessive consumption of non-renewable resources, a handful
of countries are depleting global reserves at a faster rate
than ever before. These problems are compounded as wealthy
nations continue to grow their economies by exploiting the
resources and economic potential of their impoverished
neighbors. http://www.redefiningprogress.org/

THE CREATIVE SECTOR
The UNESCO meeting report is now available that explores how
cultural participation and audience development differ among
Europe, the United States, and Latin America, titled the
"International Creative Sector." Sponsored by the Center for
Arts & Culture, UNESCO, and the President's Committee on the
Arts and Humanities, the conference was second in a series
of UNESCO meetings about current issues in the arts and
cultural industries. A final report is now available:

BREAD & ROSES
Bread and Roses is the not-for-profit cultural arm of New York's 
Health and Human Service Union, 1199/SEIU. Its 220,000 predominantly 
Latina and African American women members are employed in all job 
categories in health care institutions throughout the metropolitan 
area, New Jersey and Florida. Bread and Roses was founded in 1979 as 
a cultural resource for union members and students in New York City 
who would otherwise have little access to the arts. Special emphasis 
is given to programs that signify and interpret their history while 
generating new artistic expression.
