The Future is On the Table #3


Future002“The most intimate and delightful convening I attended all year was The Future Is on the Table,… The remarkable thing about these two artists, is their concept of inclusion. They throw ideas into the air and then collaborate closely with whomever is willing to catch them. This strategy results in arts productions so diverse that the two artists have to take on the role of ringmaster to the circus… The opening drew one of the most diverse audiences I have ever seen in an art gallery anywhere… Conversations circled around the surprising combinations of elements that drew the show together… there was much testimony about personal change…” Linda Burnham

“… I have never seen a project built on the tenets of community participation that turned out as successfully as The Future Is on The Table — a self-described experiment in “gift-exchange economics.” …” Darryl Wellington
