Event Description

Have you ever wondered how you could make a book and "get it out there" without going through the traditional means of getting your work published? Today tools exist so anyone can take content and make, produce, share, and sell books globally. Modern print technology makes it possible to get a book of one or thousands - whatever meets the demand - directly to your audience with little risk. The publishing world is taking on a whole new look as the middle-men are no longer needed and NOW is the most exciting time to be involved!

Illustrator/Author Molly Hahn will be sharing the latest information from her recent trip to Book Expo America in NYC. Come learn about the latest self-publishing tools and success stories that will inevitably inspire you to finally make that book you've been dreaming about!

We'll also have a brief update from Mark and Corinna about the BarCar Rescue project. And, we will break into a special birthday celebration for Molly and Ethan afterwards - so bring your dancin' shoes.

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.

Fishbon is a 501 (c) (3) arts organization

Anyone interested in creating or reviving and art car this year? 6 Replies
