A community is defined by a common interest.

Our contributors to creating possibilities are people and enterprises contributing to our communities of place and purpose and to creating community around our common experiences, ideas, and interests.
What is community media
The communication plan
What messages, to who, when, in what manner, with what interests?
All the information we have is available. We don’t have it organized. We don’t know what is in our interests. We don’t know or think about our interests. We don’t know what opportunities we could pursue that would contribute to our interests. We don’t know who is in our community and who is contributing to our community and the communities of common interest and common enterprise we are part of and contribute to creating.
We don’t know what we want to know. We don’t know what we want to do. We don’t know what we could do. We don’t know what is possible. We don’t know what possibilities to pursue. We don’t know what opportunities we have? We don’t know how to imagine and create possibilities.

Media literacy is our ability to consciously understand, consider, and determine how media communicated contributes to our creative interests and our creative enterprise and creative possibilities, – our creative journey, – and how it contributes to or militates against the interests and enterprise of the communities we are part of and contributing to creating. Media literacy is only of interest to those of us who are interested in improving the quality of the experience of life for ourselves and others.

What is quantum media
Quantum media is community media with intent.
We are a communication agency intent on creating community around enterprises that contribute to our common interests. We are a creative community enterprise. Our intent is to create connections.
Our interests, role, and contribution is to create connections, relationships, and creative community enterprise around opportunities, ideas, and enterprises that contribute to our common human interests.
Our common interests are to excite exploration, learning, contribution, and creative enterprise.
Our common interests are to become more informed, more connected, more able, more resourceful, and more enterprising.
Our common interests are to improve our ability to learn how to learn, learn how to respond to our experience, learn how to change the way we see and do things, learn how to contribute to changing the way we do things, learn how to communicate with one another, learn how to create relationships, and learn the art of creating.
Social media is how we can keep one another informed about what is happening. Community media is how we can pursue our common interests as individuals, as communities, and as humanity.
Community media creates connections with ideas, – connections that contribute to our understanding, our interests, our enterprise, and our possibilities for creating community and accelerating our creative and cultural development.
We create connections with stories. We excite creative enterprise with ideas and opportunities. We create community with creative community enterprise.
What would we like to do with our ability to create connections and excite interest?
What are our interests in creating connections?
What would we like to do with our ability to create with one another?
What are our common interests?
Our interest is creative contribution to our community interests and to increasing the size of our communities around enterprises that are contributing to our common interests.
Our creative contributions are our stories, – who we are, what we are doing, why we are doing what we are doing, what we are contributing to our community interests, where we are, and where we are going.
Our creative contributions are our points of view, – how we see and think about things, – our ideas, – what we are pursuing, – and the opportunities we are creating and contributing.
Our creative contributions are our ideas, observations, and connections to creative conversation around opportunities for creative community enterprise.
We contribute our resources, relationships, and enterprise to creating possibilities. We explore for opportunities, possibilities, and ideas, enterprises, and relationships that contribute to creating possibilities.
We who are contributing to creating quantum media agree on how we behave and hold one another accountable for our behaviour so we can create relationships and creative enterprise with one another. We are part of our community of common human interests contributing to our common human interests. Our interest and intent is to operate beyond integrity around our common human interests.
We are a community of different interests, cultures, circumstances. experience, abilities, and points of view contributing to each others enterprise and to opportunities to create with one another around common and complementary interests.
We create connections by telling stories of creative contribution. Our interest is to excite creative contribution by exciting interest in creating connections.
Why are media enterprises worth so much? Because they create connections. Why is social media a revolution? Because it makes word-of-mouth easy? What do these connections contribute to? What communities of interest do they create? What community of interest are most likely to create word of mouth? What community of interest is most loyal? What community of interest understandings the value and contribution of relationships? What community of interest is most influential? What community of interest is growing? What community of interest would we like to grow and be part of contributing to growing?
If we spend $600 billion a year to influence what we think, what we do, and what we buy, we could spend $6 billion as an investment to influence what we think, what we do, and what we invest in that will contribute to our common human interests, – the interests we have in common to create better possibilities for our future.

Arts Health Network Canada
The aim of Arts Health Network Canada and its first provincial chapter, Arts Health Network Canada-BC is to connect arts and health practitioners in Canada with each other, researchers, decision-makers, and with members of the public who want to benefit from arts and health programs. The Arts Health Network website is designed as an all-inclusive hub where arts and health users and the public can learn about and contribute knowledge about the growing field of arts and health in Canada.
The web site provides information on arts and health and a list of resources ranging from books, film, and websites to reports, magazines, and academic journal articles about new and ongoing initiatives taking place across Canada; national and international research projects; upcoming and ongoing events, classes, and workshops; and an arts and health news feed. We intend to make the website as comprehensive and informative as possible about arts and health activities across Canada. To do so, we need your input.
