I have some ideas for future articles and I would like to know if w have anyone that would be interested assisting with phone interviews : summarize & provide to support an article?
For instance ... I have an artist here in TN who has a very deep understanding of WHY the mountain folk arts are so important to this area (Appalachia & surround areas). Each year year, Fall Creek Falls State Park hosts the Mountaineer Folk Festival the weekend after Labor Day. I could not get an interview scheduled - but she has written back and is willing to help us.
This part of the article I have in mind is important as it shows that much art was born of necessity .. but also wo/mans need to take the utilitarian item and create works of art from it.
If anyone is interested on collaborating on this and future articles - please let me know and we'll post details in the admin group.
I am ready to start collaborating so we can accomplish more. I can't do it all - even though I really want to! I Love learning and pushing my boundaries and what I have seen lately (I study market analysis /and help with strategic planning) is the NEED to truly learn how to work independently & inter-dependently. Once you start collaborating and you see the power of putting those "great" brains together for the purpose of creating beauty / healing humanity etc... you realize THAT is Pretty Powerful Stuff. Learning how to work through so many challenges (distance / language barriers / lack of funding ... WE ---> go team :: should be very pleased with the direction the magazine is going.
