Holes in the Wall Collective will is going to build a CENTER FOR CREATIVE RESEARCH, REFLECTION & ACTION in the catskill region of New York, and have found a prospective site. Here we will invite annual fellows to incubate their work and be challenged and nurtured by multi-discipline multi-identity perspectives centered around a theme, Change the Climate, for example. Here we will start a youth and elders program (or as most people in our culture would prefer, youth & retirees program), built for collective knowledge, history and context sharing to happen in support of youth led community project proposals. Here we will produce public forums, what we’re calling cauldron sessions, and continue our Creative Residency program for creatives of all kinds. Follow us ! to see how it all happens.
