My partner Brian suggests that perhaps we should try farming for the arts,
farming artistically, to support artists in our community.

>Subject: Using art
>It occurs to me that in advocating for sustainable agriculture we make
many of our appeals by values (what is right, just, sustainable, our
vision, etc.) and by reason (reports, studies, policy analysis, etc.)
and only occasionally use the arts. On a personal whim I would like to
explore the possibilities in using the arts to appeal to peoples' core
beings and their intuition by using photography, music, dance, theater,
painting, and/or sculpture, etc., to carry a powerful message that
results in change. More than once I have thought of ideas of creating
farmer-oriented art exhibits eventhough I have no experience in that
field. Can people share with me examples of how the arts have already
been used effectively and who organized those exhibits and events?
Should more energy be put into expressing our movement through the arts,
why or why not? What resources do people recommend to develop these
kinds of projects? I am willing to compile and share with you the
responses I get to this inquiry. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
