Brian Dolber Studies Transmedia Project in The Philippines
Dr. Brian Dolber, Mass Communications, spent his February break in Manila, The Philippines with support from the StAR Faculty International Travel Grant. He accompanied Kim Dryden and Austin Smith of the Filipino Street Art Project, a transmedia effort to explore and promote the country’s emerging street art scene. Dr. Dolber met with artists, activists and scholars during the week, and plans to write about the project as a case study in the shifting labor dynamics of cultural production in a global context. He thanks Drs. Jim Mills, Tracy Allen and Savannah Bao for developing the grant program and allocating the funds.
