Community Systems

The first project of ICIS, Community Systems project, began in February 2011. The objective of this research experiment was to explore how a community of artists, health educationists, business entrepreneurs and consumers would support each other in providing their services and build a better society. The participants included artists of different types including a stone sculpting teacher and his students, Yoga teacher and her students, Tai Chi teacher and his students, startup technology business owners, pharmaceutical business owner, photography enthusiasts etc. The project ran for eighteen months and we learned how two seemingly disparate services could support each other in a co-existing environment if sufficient avenues of cooperation are opened for them.
This project ended on July 31, 2012. We thank all members of the community who participated in the research experiment. We hope that the participating members learned valuable lessons from this project and we wish them succes in all future endeavors.
