Dear musician artist-friend,
Your work sounds very satisfying (and undoubtably very diverse!)
You will find information on the website about my background as an an "artist for peace (and transformation)". I believe that any work which empowers:
is applying the arts for peace.
I will be traveling to Washington D.C. May 8-14th and wish to make
an appointment with the Smithsonian's Director of the Annual FolkLife Festival on The Mall in D.C.. Are you familiar with this international festival? It sounds to me as if it could be so synergistically rewarding for everyone if the visually artistic forms of "Weaving The Dream!" could be included with their international music and dance! If you have any way to help me in my endeavor to secure an appointment at the FolkLife Festival in that time frame I would be most grateful! (you and I are now networking for artists for peace!).
More of "the networking of artists and peace" can happen easily as we continue to share our co-creative ideas for "Weaving The Dream!" We can continue to reserve this particular Subject "thread" for anyone who wishes to either comment on or to correspond as "artists for peace"
I am interested to hear more about what you do in serving on the Cultural Diversity Committee for the KY Arts Council? I have served for 5 years as an arts commissioner for the city of Newport Beach, CA.
Perhaps the Kentucky Arts Council will consider sponsoring the idea of "Weaving The Dream!" in your state? I hope so!
