I have been blessed with an amazing team of people to make the next phase of the development of the Conversations project.
There is so much to talk about in terms of the dream for this project…will flesh it out later.
But I will say that this is technically phase three of the project because I started to incubate and develop the concept 3 or 4 years ago. Back then the team was myself, Moss Velez, Henrik Jensen and Randolph Matthews at the Poetry Cafe in 2002…
Oops, that’ll be 7 years… my, don’t time fly!
But here we are in 2009 and now I’m looking at forging some strong bonds and digging some deep roots for a sanctuary to exist, where professional and emerging artists can come together and make work in new ways.
