If you had the backing, what kind of business would you start?
I’d start an arts community. It would be somewhere beautiful, and artists, musicians, dancers, actors, dramaturges, writers of all kinds, and also scientists and even business people and people in the psycho-therapeutic community would all come a live together for a month or two at a time.
We’d create work together and separately. We’d do creativity workshops. We’d jam together and present work and perhaps most of all, we’d play. It would be like summer camp for adults, in a way, only year round. It would be an idea generator and a battery recharger.
It would probably be expensive, so one goal would be to build an endowment that could support scholarships for people who could not afford to come. I would also want to have promising people who perhaps were not yet artists, but who were creative, anyway.
It would be wonderful to be around such people and such creative energy all the time, I think.
