Spectacle
by Media Mike

"Mike Hazard is a video verb. He inspires, informs, prods, energizes, dreams, illuminates, shoots, praises, writes, edits, directs, models, feeds back and celebrates with the art of television. When students and teachers work with Media Mike, they work in sync." - David Bengtson, poet and teacher, Long Prairie Grey Eagle High School

WHAT DOES THE CIE
STAND FOR?


The Center for International Education (The CIE) is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)3 media arts micro-organization. We make poetic media with people of all ages from all over the world for everyone. A unique shape-shifting organization since 1972, The CIE likes to say it is a corporation as a work of art in progress.

Support for our mission is roughly divided in three equal parts: earned income from artist residencies in the schools and museums; earned income from sales of videos; and private donations and public grants for productions of new programs.

MEDIA MIKE?
Mike Hazard, a.k.a. Media Mike, is artist-in-residence at The Center for International Education. He teaches people of all ages how to make lively videos and he makes video portraits of lively people. His remarkable series of videos includes Jim Northrup, Robert Bly, Thomas McGrath, Frederick Manfred, Tiger Jack Rosenbloom and Jerry Rudquist. He is working on an imaginary mid-life video memoir called Solar Power & Moonshine.
