I started a new group, consider a global artists retreat.
Posted October 14th, 2008 - 7:22 pm by from Pittsburgh, United States (Permalink)

I've started a new group that we are calling the Hayfire Project.

The essential idea is that via social networking sites such as Couchsurfing.com, Myspace.com, Facebook.com, etc. we can make the artistic world a much smaller place.

Some of the, penniless and no money involved, ideas include that while you are trying to surf someone's couch - why not also surf their art studio? Why not have a surf based on artistic collaboration? Why not surf, experience the joy of creative, the beauty of exchange and the wonder of gifting.

We will be having gallery showings for all involved in private art galleries called apartments.

We want to be able to connect artists to other artists in ways they've always thought possible.

We want everyone who has a working knowledge of their local art scene to be able to connect traveling artists to the art medium they wish to experience, collaborate with, learn from, share, master, etc.

Please come and join our group, share something about yourself, tell us what you have to offer and what you want to experience out of art when you travel.
