FISHBON EVENTS AND PROJECTS

FISHBON EVENT LAB

Wednesday, July 30
7:30pm Potluck

HELP DESIGN A UNIVERSITY?
A Neo-Educational Experinence

The Future of Education, FU/LU Style

Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Study without desire spoils the memory and it retains nothing that it takes in.” Hence, Fishbon and Lucidity University (FU/LU) want to bring you something exciting that's guaranteed to make your grey matter sizzle. 

This Wednesday night, YOU can help design a University that's going to be unique, outrageous.and fun. But what is FU/LU? Who are the people behind it and what's the thinking that's guides its creation?

Join Vikki Gilmore, science teacher, Luke Holden, festival designer and Jill Littlewood, artist, as they brainstorm the future of the University. They'll open with the history of alternative educational concepts, talk about how FU/LU came into being, discuss the creation of a self-designed master’s degree program and lead a discussion on where these ideas may take us.

Heads up! We're planning a pre-Playa Fashion show for EventLab, August 13. Show us what you've been working on before it's premanently transformed by dust and recklessness.

The scholastic potluck starts 7:30pm. Bring something with class.


COLLABORATION AT FISHBON

Since our inception as the result of a collaboration in 2003, Fishbonartists, builders, engineers and performers have collaborated to bring more than fifty creative events, installations and performances to life. And we need your help to keep that beautiful string of projects alive. If you have an idea that you want to develop further, want to work with others on a project, or would be willing to help organize a project this year, click on the Collaborative Project Madness banner above and tell us how you want to be part of the next adventure.

Mission and Purpose

Fishbon’s Purpose:
Fishbon's purpose is to provide a forum, education and support for creative collaboration, mentorship and the visceral experience of visual, aural and performance-based art.  It is also to provide exhibition media for the artists and their art forms.

Fishbon’s Mission:
Fishbon's mission is to encourage collaboration between artists, technologists, writers, designers, performers and participants to create unique, real-time, compelling aesthetic experiences that speak to contemporary audiences.  Fishbon believes the synergy (sharings of perspectives and skills) made possible in a collaborative space creates a unique and special context for art.  By providing context, physical infrastructure, tools, mentoring support and encouragement for creative collaboration, Fishbon is an experiential incubator for emerging cooperative working models.  Much more about the process experience than final product, Fishbon creates a diverse "interactive" learning community that would be difficult to achieve in isolated individual working environments.
