Sorry sorry sorry for not posting anything in a while. We’re back in Miami at the moment collaborating with another bus family – Nando and Blair, founders of www.artofculturalevolution.org – on a live demonstration of sustainable and communal living called Midtown34thStreet, located in the Wynwood arts district of Miami. For Art Basel Miami Beach, which opens tomorrow, we have produced a series of show gardens, various models and applications of solar power and program of events that include art film screenings, a raw food tasting and water catchment and essential oils workshops. From its humble beginnings as a vacant trash lot, a stones through from now gentrified ‘Midtown’, and after two months of back breaking toil in the hot sun we are pleased to open to the public. Though in a perpetual state of development, we now have the basics in alternative infrastructure from solar powered lights and irrigation to compost strategies and organic food production.
Over the next few months we will be continuing to lay these important foundations, but for now we’re just happy to activate the site. If you live in or are visiting Miami for the fairs please come, learn with us and take advantage of our blossoming program. For the next week we are very happy and fortunate to be able to offer a variety of workshops and art events, and share the resources we have been pulling together with the help of some great local talent and the kindness of strangers. On that note, many many thanks to everyone who has supported the project with both donations and their time.
Best wishes for the week ahead, Tom.
