Cardboard Castles and Other Amenities...

I am really interested in using different forms of cultural action to help build better communities. Communities are a vital social model, allowing us to tackle problems beyond the ability of individuals with the focus of a defined (usually relatively small) group of people. How do the arts and cultural work in general help communities grow more sustainable futures? If you have a cool website or project or your own ideas on these subjects please let me know.

337 Project

1 building, 42 rooms, 94 artists, 3 months mix well and see what happens: The 337 project (vid). It’s pretty sweet. Adam and Dessi Price opened up their to-be-destroyed building to artists of all shapes and sizes to create a temporary art exhibit. The video is very cool. This project was inspired by the 11 Spring Project and reminds me of The Graffiti Project at Kelburn Castle.
