Progressing our city through THE ARTS and CREATIVE IDEAS
Hi all and thank you for inviting me, I wanted to share a few links about my work.
I work with a group called the Tucson Arts Brigade on community arts collaborations involving people of all walks of life. This work includes dance and mural work, writings, exhibitions, visiting artists and more. Check out the site and let me know what you think. (you can join us on facebook as well)
I edit a blog called Community Arts and Murals, so if anyone has something they would like to have published relating to the function of community arts in building Creative Cities let me know.
Much of my work involves working in coalition on arts based solutions to complex social ills. You can follow some of this work on our project blogs such as the 29th Street and Barrio Centro community murals.
We have a mural unveiling June 18 if anyone is in the area - there will be music, food, puppets, dancers, and neighborhood stories. It's going to be a blast. Check the Barrio Centro Blog for details.
Look forward to meeting everyone in this network.
Peace - Michael
