I'm a scholar-writer for the Black Earth Institute, a community of creative, committed artists and scholars, and a grant resource. Established in 2005, BEI is dedicated to supporting art in re-forging the links between spirit, earth, and society, for art and its makers to create the space for changing minds and the world.
BEI fellows and scholars are literary, dramatic and media artists; performance artists; and journalists addressing the urgent social and environmental issues facing the planet. Chosen fellows and scholars join in a global community guided by previous fellows and scholars. They share artistic creations and support each other in working towards common objectives.
BEI also produces the literary journal About Place.
