Cultural Preservation/Interchange and Eco-Sustainable Artist Retreat, from DJ SPooky

Paul D. Miller, aka Dj Spooky that Subliminal Kid–one of the most inventive artists I know–recently let me know about the new artist retreat he is involved with on the island of Vanuatu. Check it out, and if you can, help kickstart the effort.

Check out the details on the 400-acre retreat at The Vanuatu Pacifica Foundation.

Spooky is not only producing tracks for next Run DMC album, but he’s contributing something for my forthcoming novel BLANK (Jaded Ibis, 2011).

DAVIS SCHNEIDERMAN is a multimedia artist and writer and the author or editor of eight print and audio works, including the novels
Drain

Burroughs in the Age of Globalization (Pluto) and The Exquisite Corpse: Chance and Collaboration in Surrealism’s Parlor Game (Nebraska); as well as the audiocollage Memorials to Future Catastrophes (Jaded Ibis).
