"Sounds good but how do they, as promoters and permit givers, feel about fringe freelance artists just showing up and squating?"

Thank you so much Travis for asking about my vision with the site. I find it a very important question.
You have never met me. In fact, most people haven't. I guess you could say, I am not quite "cooked" enough to come out of the oven - sorta speak. I have been working very hard to get the site off the ground. I have been working on technical, visual, and interactive features that make the artists want to come back.

My personal vision with the site is to give artists a place they can learn to grown and get to know each other. I want to encourage artists to enjoy life again, if they’ve lost it a bit. I want them to dig into their closets, attics, etc… to find their first love. I also want new artists to become part of the site without judgment and intimidation; hoping the interaction with other artists and the tools we supply will encourage them to grow. As a society, we have been conditioned for so long to watch the fulfillment and happiness centered on famous, wealthy or”fortunate” people. Why can't anyone find that moment?

I guess my own personal experience as a child has molded my motivation as well. I wanted to sing and dance so bad. I would practicing sometimes for hours. After a while, it routinely felt like an excited “punctured helium balloon” flying all over the place. I would just finish and then land in “some space”. I had no idea what to do after and no direction. I didn’t know where to go from where I was; feeling down and discouraged as a child. I don’t ever want anyone to feel like that or to EVER give up on their dreams. We only get one shot at all this and if I can do something to make life enjoyable for people I will.

I am currently working on a children’s poetry book, writing songs, and also working on the site. There are many other goals I would like to reach, but time management will play a big factor on when and how I am going to reach them. So for now, I will stick to a few goals, keeping the others in mind.

Yeah! An aspiring one. I've always loved photography and have been doing it on my own for a while now. But this semester I've taken my first photography class. Seeing my prints definitely kicked up my ambition of being one :)
