The BBC and Arts Council England have teamed up to launch a new service for mobile, tablet, PC and connected TV called The Space. The service is also available on digital television in the UK and is accessible via the BBC’s ‘Red Button‘ function for TV too. The experimental idea is aimed at allowing artists and cultural organisations to capture and distribute their own work on the platform. The Space is the result of a four-year Public Value Partnership between the BBC and Arts Council England. The initial idea was to create ‘a new era of public engagement in the arts’, and to build digital capacity and skills within the arts sector. Get Ready for A Summer of Arts with The Space
The arts — free and on-demand The Space pilot service came to an end on 31 October 2013. You can watch The Space Journey to see some of the highlights from the last 18 months and hear from those who’ve contributed to the creation of this new digital service for the arts. The Space, the online partnership between Arts Council England and the BBC is planning to re-launch in Spring/Summer 2014, subject to BBC Trust approval, as a dynamic new space for artists and audiences to invent and explore brilliant digital art, live, free and on-demand. It will be the place for artists to experiment, take risks and think big. It will offer audiences a range of new ideas from exclusive new commissions and early ‘try-outs’ to unmissable world premiere live events.

AP PhotoAre the chances of Thom Yorke and Radiohead playing Grand Rapids better than winning the Lotto or getting struck by lightning? Ultra-innovative English rock band Radiohead kicks off its much-hyped 2012 U.S. tour in February, with 10 concert dates announced this week to entice its devoted fans. Calvin College wants Grand Rapids added to the tour schedule. Student activities director Ken Heffner said he's actually “put in an offer” to book the multi-platinum-selling rock band for a campus concert during its 2012 tour. But he conceded it's unlikely Thom Yorke and his Radiohead bandmates will swing by for a show (which I speculate would probably have to be held in the college's Spoelhof Fieldhouse Complex, a facility that held 2,100-plus for a concert by The Decemberists earlier this year). Radiohead in Grand Rapids? A longshot, but Calvin College puts in offer to land tour stop
Tiny People's Wonderful World
by Maria Popova A vibrant mid-century homage to one of the most beloved children’s books of all time. It’s no secret I have a soft spot for obscure vintage children’s book illustration, especially by famous artists or of famous works. Spotted on the lovely Vintage Kids’ Books My Kids Love, here’s a beautiful 1949 edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, illustrated by Leonard Weisgard — only the second version of the Lewis Carroll classic, and the first with color illustrations UPDATE: Reader Mark Burstein, an avid Alice collector, kindly points out there have been multiple editions before Weisgard’s, including some in color.
