Climate change and agriculture Climate change and agriculture are interrelated processes, both of which take place on a worldwide scale. Global warming is projected to have significant impacts on conditions affecting agriculture, including temperatureprecipitation and glacial run-off. These conditions determine the carrying capacity of the biosphere to produce enough food for the human population and domesticated animals.
Predicting impacts of technology and social media Asked to forecast the impact that technology and social media will have on the field as a whole in the coming years, respondents mentioned everything from practical implications to broader, soul-searching ideas about the future of creativity.
From a practical standpoint, many organizations state that technology will make them more efficient: The internet makes it possible for our organization to market ourselves more effectively through online advertising, blog presences, and social media exchanges.
We have been able to decrease our budgets and increase revenue by utilizing online resources effectively. It is also greatly facilitating their ability to book talent, and to know what to expect: For arts programmers, the access to high quality media to review artists in advance of assessing them live has been a huge step forward.
Others commented on how technology is changing the behavior of the ticket-buying public: Last-minute ticket-buying and the trend away from traditional subscription packages will probably continue, as the internet has freed people up from having to plan for most event attendance far in advance.
This will affect the predictability of revenue. On the positive side, social media has been a wonderful tool for word-of-mouth marketing. While it is impossible to know what internet and digital technologies will be like in 10 years, the trend of more information communicated more quickly to a more finely targeted audience with more immediate feedback from the recipient is likely to continue.
We believe that this leads people to delay their decision-making about how they will spend their leisure time. For our field, this has generally meant a decline in subscriptions, a decrease in advance ticket sales, and an increase in last-minute box office sales.
Moving beyond the practical, one of the prevailing positive themes is that technology increases — and will continue to increase — access to the arts. Technology is helping them introduce more audiences to art: The digital world is a very populist force, leveling the world between rich and poor, educated and uneducated.
That is a big deal! It has extended our visibility to many isolated individuals who may never have heard about our services, explored the artform, or who may have financial barriers to membership. We show to them every day what we do, rather than expect them to find a printed annual report and program summary.
Social media are concrete and immediate examples of our living community in action. Technology is also helping arts organizations extend their impact, far beyond a one-time performance or event: The internet and digital media provide an amazing opportunity for arts organizations to extend the impact of the arts.
A live performance can be complemented greatly by opportunities for further engagement and education, and the ability to share information online maximizes our ability to provide these opportunities at a more in-scale investment ratio. We can reach many more people with an article or video than with a one-time lecture, for example.
We are able to provide artwork that dates back more than 25 years to the communities we have worked with over the years. For many, these archives represent the only media history of their community.
The use of the internet has deepened and expanded the access for our constituencies that are often transitional, without a landbase, or have been historically isolated due to geography. Technology is increasing access to the arts by breaking geographic constraints: I think that it will greatly improve accessibility to the arts field — from a monetary standpoint and from a logistical standpoint.
People who live outside of urban areas will be able to experience performances that are somewhat limited to large urban areas. Technology is helping organizations reach more diverse communities — even on a global scale: The greatest impact will be the ability for non-profit organizations to share educational content and stimulating art and performances worldwide.
It will also spark conversations between diverse communities and help individuals develop a greater understanding — and hopefully, a life-long appreciation for the arts.COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland, in collaboration with Rep.

Background of the Study. Today’s office business, professional or Government is in a state of change. The arts organizations represented in the survey tend to agree with the notions that the internet and social media have “increased engagement” and made art a more participatory experience, and that they have helped make “arts audiences more diverse.”.

Technology can be viewed as an activity that forms or changes culture. Additionally, technology is the application of math, science, and the arts for the benefit of life as it is known.
