From smart cities to smart learning environments - A comparative study

We are in the midst of a new economic age, a complex competitive landscape defined largely by globalization and digitalisation. That means that the utilization and production of knowledge and innovativeness have become critical to organizational survival (Uhl-Bien, Marion, McKelvey, 2007).

Community Development, The Arts and Issues of Criminality and Justice

Vox Liminis is a creative community, developing the role of the arts in reducing crime and promoting justice in Scotland. 

Working primarily through music, we work in prisons with prisoners and professional singer-songwriters to write songs together. We also work with families affected by crime.
