Abstract: We must enrich the “soul and sensitivity” of our students in the same way we develop their minds, by connecting the GT community to the world of art and expression. New industries have arisen in the 21st century as art and technology become more and more entwined – it is a new confluence between expression and technology. There are fundamentally complex problems that require invention and innovation to be solved, tapping into more than nuts and bolts technology. There are significant industrial sectors for employment and growth as well as entrepreneurial opportunities for wealth creation. And, there is the remarkable goal of advancing the ability of humanity to create, perform, disseminate, and experience new artistic forms and means of self-expression.
