Ideameus is dedicated to ideas and discussion that will cross institutional, social, and politiclal boundaries. This is a creative blog that explores the interaction of faith, design, culture, art, human performance, wellness and social movements as a means to advancing culture and communities.

Below is an exploration of the proposed “way of being” for the content of the blog, and hopefully those who may happen upon it and engage in the conversation.

realities. Ultimately, the creative concept that creates the vision
of a community must rise from a willingness of divided
interests uniting around common purposes and vision. … For now, it starts
with an idea …
