The Providence After School Alliance seems to be the sort of “architectonic productive art” that Chris Lindgren, Matt Warner, Emily Bartz, Jade Sandbulte and I have been trying to imagine and build in Fargo (with a nod to Richard McKeon’s definition of rhetoric). Our focus has been a little more narrow (building a smarter computing culture); this broader approach seems to enable arts programming, music, video editing, bicycle repair, and more. The programs are divided into middle and high school umbrellas–After Zone and The Hub. I see they aspire to be a national model, and there seems to be a program in Northern Minnesota. Will have to look into expanding to Fargo and ND generally.
