At no time in history has technology had the prospect of making a stronger cross-border impact on culture.

Many of us are being empowered with the ability to easily create digital content, document and share our own experiences and those of others, challenging the roles of art (passive vs. interactive) and revolutionizing the way we see and hear the world. At the same time, only a small percentage of people have access to technology (boundaries of those that have it versus those that don't).
