Collaboration Project  
There is too much beauty in the world for it not to be shared.


Is anyone here interested in a mixed media collaborative blog? I've got poetry/written-word down (you don't have to like them) - do we have any photographers, musicians, painters, dancers, whatever who would be interested in starting up a blog? I'm looking for four to six interested parties - each person updating once a week to a weekly theme through-out 2012.


Have you ever wondered if perfect strangers could come together?


I'd like to expand this out to a more general social experiment. While it doesn't need to be to the extent of a collaborative youtube channel, I would like to figure out a way for some strangers to get to know one another - perhaps a weekly personal blog update related to the weekly theme?


What do you think?


I really want to make this happen.

Side note on an unrelated project:

I have some poetry that I would like to contribute to some video/music projects.

Is anyone here interested in music composition to accompany spoken-word poetry?
Is anyone here interested in short film creation to accompany spoken-word poetry?

We look around at those we admire, and it seems to us that they are so unfairly talented - they can do everything, by themselves. And that's not true of the world. Most us are halfway decent at one or two things. But that doesn't mean we can never achieve our dreams, it just means we need to work together to do it.

Would you be interested in doing weekly videos, or is that far too much work?

There's another person who's going to do photography, but if you'd prefer that we can have two. Photography is my favourite art form so that doesn't bother me at all.

I'm so pumped that you'd like to participate. I'd love to get to know you better!
I'll message you some more information.

Short is fine! The aim of this project is to create a series of connected but individual, thought-provoking pieces. The length of your video is irrelevant to that. :)

I'm a writer - short stories, prose, poetry, etc... I'm very interested. Let me know if you need anyone else.

this sounds like a really cool idea. afraid I dont actually have any blog-able talents, but I'll spread the word.

Thanks Adrian - we're specifically looking for musicians, dancers, or other non-written, non-photography artists. :)
