Fishbon Santa Barbara

Dress Up, Live Now

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.

Their initial working partnership has been with artist members of the Lakomuna Artist Collective based in Cuenca. The piece features an indigenous musician that speaks to the important relationship that Ecuadorians have with their "patrimonio" or traditional heritage. The new community has also partnered with musical curator Rick Hubbert to bring a series of monthly concerts by musicians from all over North and South America and further afield.

Italian singer Daniela headlined on vocals and accordion,  accompanied by Magico Herrera (from Peru) on percussion, with special  guest performers. The event was held at Fishbon del Sur 14-25 Mariscal Lamar y Estevez  de Toral in Cuenca, Ecuador

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
