Cure for Fear: A Call for Artists (and ABRs): Multidisciplinary Experiment

Posted on February 15, 2014 at 5:00pm 1 Comment

I am inviting you to consider participating (as artist, ABR) in a strange indulgent important collaborative art project I am starting called "Cure for Fear." The least of expectation if you join the collaboration is to produce a work of art/writing in your medium of preference, that revolves around the overall theme of arts and their role in "Cure for Fear" but more specially on the intervention (see attached-link raw notes below) into Triskaidekaphoobia (fear of 13).
