Announcing a new venture (well, not a new venture, really, just a better name for what I’ve been doing all along):
The purposes of the CITIZENS CREATIVE rubric are twofold:
- To encourage the development of creativity in thought and expression
- To encourage the application of creative thought to the social and political challenges we face.
I pursue these goals in a number of ways – through conducting workshops, giving performances, and writing. As I said above, this is actually what I’ve been doing all along – but having a name and a framework like this, I think, helps to define and focus my efforts. Under this heading, I could also publish books (“Citizens Creative Press”!), present performances (“Citizens Creative Productions”!), sponsor conferences, etc.
For now, it’s just a plain ol’ sole-proprietorship kinda thing… but later, we might look at making it a real live nonprofit with memberships and swag and everything. But you can certainly help – any contributions towards getting this endeavor off the ground (and also, incidentally, keeping yours truly on top of the ground) would be much appreciated… ! Checks can be sent to PO Box 368, Honesdale PA 18431; prayers, beams, and good wishes can be sent directly, or via the Higher Power of your choice.
The first scheduled activity will be the Green Corpuscle production I mentioned before (working title FOURTEEN CHILDREN), which is also being made possible in part by a grant from the Puffin Foundation. Plans for other activities and any other news will be reported as they happen!
