Fishbon del Sur

Fishbon del Sur is an adventure in cross-cultural, bi-lingual creative play. Fishboners Clay Bodine and Laura recently moved to the charming city of Cuenca, Ecuador to begin a new international chapter of the Fishbon idea. In a little over three months, they've found and outfitted a beautiful colonial Ecuadorian house and transformed it into a center for creative exchange in the northwest corner of South America.…

Creative Expansion Tour in Ecuador

The first month has been taxing and wonderful. After three solid weeks of looking we found what we think will be a great pace to work on new projects, but at the same time, I lost my bag with wallet, hard drives, my favorite pen and sunglasses–a big loss. Nothing is irreplaceable, but it's a major inconvenience…

Hi there

Hi there. I am happy to be a new member of fishbon.

I am a 61 year old, carpenter, cabinetmaker, recovering hippie with a penchant for the unusual.

Sadly; I am more artisan than artist, more stage hand than actor but, I would really like to help with some outrageousness.

I would especially like to help with any project that might be going to burning man this year, art car; theme camp or art installation, performance. I didn't get a ticket ,YET, but even if I can't make it this… Continue

10 Amazing Lessons from Albert Einstein:


Follow Your Curiosity

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

What piques your curiosity? I am curious as to what causes one person to succeed while another person fails; this is why I’ve spent years studying success. What are you most curious about? The pursuit of your curiosity is the secret to your success.

2) Perseverance is Priceless

“It's not that I'm so smart; it's just that I stay… Continue

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
