Religion Whether you are religious or not, it must be accepted that religion has been with us for a very long time. Some of the most monumental structures ever made have had religious functions. Today it is still possible to be moved by the ruins of these sites, even though the people who made them, and sometimes the gods they were raised to, have disappeared. Top 10 Ancient Religious Sites
The Cradle-to-Cradle Alternative By William McDonough & Michael Braungart, ©2003 from State of the World 2004 (Worldwatch / W.W. Norton, 2004) Imagine a world in which all the things we make, use, and consume provide nutrition for nature and industry—a world in which growth is good and human activity generates a delightful, restorative ecological footprint. While this may seem like heresy to many in the world of sustainable development, the destructive qualities of today’s cradle-to-grave industrial system can be seen as the result of a fundamental design problem, not the inevitable outcome of consumption and economic activity. Indeed, good design—principled design based on the laws of nature—can transform the making and consumption of things into a regenerative force.

Hannah Dennison - Cradle to Grave Arts - Choreographer For over 20 years, I have been teaching, creating and presenting dance/theatre in northern Vermont. I collaborate with a variety of people (ages, skills, histories) using many art forms (dance, music, video, visual, words) both improvised and choreographed. I offer performance opportunity to people who otherwise might never have the chance. I am one of a small handful of Vermont choreographers making work for a mixed ensemble of seasoned dance artists and fledgling performers, who don't necessarily fit the stereotype of "dancer/ performer". Because of the site-specific work I do in the community, many people in the audience will come to the theatre for the first time, stepping through the door to see contemporary dance created by accessible neighbors.
2014 Art Theme: Caravansary For centuries, Silk Route travelers crossed paths in caravansaries, bustling caravan stops offering more than just shelter from the desert wilderness; they were vital centers of cultural exchange, bringing together traders, pilgrims, monks, nomads, traveling entertainers, and wild-eyed adventurers from all points of the compass to share their stories around a common fire. What Is Burning Man? Once a year, tens of thousands of participants gather in Nevada's Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, having left no trace whatsoever.

“We believe in puppet theater as a wholesome and powerful language that can touch men and women and children alike, and we hope that our plays are true and are saying what has to be said, and that they add to your enjoyment and enlightment.” –Peter Schumann The Bread and Puppet Theater was founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City’s Lower East Side. Besides rod-puppet and hand puppet shows for children, the concerns of the first productions were rents, rats, police, and other problems of the neighborhood. More complex theater pieces followed, in which sculpture, music, dance and language were equal partners. Bread and Puppet: Cheap Art and Political Theater in Vermont
Observation is the key to thinking and seeing the world in new light. All great artists know you have to learn to SEE, not just look. Knowing what you see and how to really process the entire image is important to being creative and using your observations to create. See the World Like An Artistic Genius in 7 Steps | Ravi Vora
