Some of the artists mentioned in our presentation:
Many of these artists participate in The Crucible’s annual summer Fire Arts Festival.
Smaller events abound but are harder to find. A great list for underground and counterculture events is the Squidlist.
Volunteer to work with these art groups. Some have very strong mission to welcome and educate newcomers. Most welcome willing workers with any skills. Join their Facebook, Twitter, Flickr groups and learn more about how they work and how to get involved.
