Over the past couple of years I’ve taken part in Sally Taylor's Consenses Project, a grand-scale collaborative game of artistic telephone:
Over 100 artists from all over the world, in all media, styles and disciplines, were involved in multiple threads of translations and adaptations. The project aims to "increase cross border cultural understanding through large scale art projects that serve to promote and achieve peace (i.e. "consensus") among communities worldwide." A worthy goal, especially in these troubled times!
Consenses launches its premier exhibit this summer (for 3 days only) on Martha’s Vineyard Island, off the coast of Massachusetts. Come to the exhibit and saturate your senses in this. I’ll be co-leading a workshop with Scarlet Keys, and I’d love to see you there! Artists such as Jimmy Buffett, Jennifer Nettles, John Forte, James Taylor & Carly Simon (Sally’s folks) have participated and will be featured. There will be tons of performances and excitement. An event not to be missed!
