Bennington's Center for the Advancement of Public Action opens this weekend!

At Bennington, we have a strong focus on building our concentrations around a core of social responsibility and public action. This weekend, we are finally having the grand opening of our Center for the Advancement of Public Action (CAPA), which is designed to give us the tools to incorporate the philosophy and technology of public action into our education and careers. How I approach my own work, particularly this blog, has a lot to do with the philosophy that CAPA endorses. The celebration for the opening, which starts today and ends on Sunday, has a really exciting schedule of people talking and workshopping. I will be covering some of the events both here, on the Bennington Tapped In blog, and on Twitter. You can find the whole schedule of events here, and I really recommend that you check it out. I am particularly excited to attend The Power of Infographics: How to Turn An Overwhelming Amount of Data into Meaningful Information, conducted by designer Gong Szeto.
