The Detached Garage Creative Residency Program
I run an artist-in-residence program out of the detached garage on my property. Artists may apply for work space or live/work space, and residencies last from 2-6 weeks. During their residency, artists also develop and lead a Double or Nothing seminar. Double or Nothing seminars require the artist to teach two unrelated subjects at the same time. The intention is for artists to explore their individuality and share their depth and breadth of experience with the local community.
I am a co-founder of the No One Way Arts Collaborative (N.O.W.), an organization that helps people develop, nurture, and apply their creative selves. We plan artistic retreats in cities across the country and invite creators to fly in to the host city to participate. We also design and implement creative online challenges, using the internet to collaborate with a more diverse network of creators. To date, N.O.W. has collaborated with over 100 artists from 76 cities across 4 continents.
The Wayfaring Band
I am a co-founder of The Wayfaring Band, an organization that equips young adults with special needs and emerging community thought leaders with the social tools to impact the global community. We offer social programs and road trips.
