Under the 'umbrella' of 'eidia' (pronounced idea) exists EIDIA House: a meeting place for ideas and forum for artists, designers, scholars, poets, writers, architects and others interested in "ide'e force" - the arts as an instrument for positive social change. http://www.eidia.com/manifesto/
The intent of EIDIA House is to: broaden aesthetic research, promote a comprehensive expansion of the influence of art on a world wide basis, encourage 'green' architecture / art and create an authentic forum for social change originating from the art world.
EIDIA House evolved as a concept during the creation of "the nea tapes" documentary film and archive - a six-year project researching censorship and arts funding in America. http://www.eidia.com/neatapes1.html
