Another trusty reference uncovered. Owen Jones' The Grammar of Ornament. Found it at the best time - while I'm doing concept development.
And later this week, the Festival of Extra Ordinary Textiles in a Manila Museum... :D
I went on a coursera marathon the past few days, and it has been rewarding. The course that sticks out for me is the Arts and Culture Strategy module via Coursera.org. You will find the course here. Good practical tips and information for artists, cultural workers, curators, art managers and other industry players. It was a fairly well executed course.
