Boom Festival 2008 is shaping up to be a very potent mix for Visionary arts. The epicentre for this can be found at the Liminal Village where a number of events and activities will take place. I’m looking forward to attending the festival for a number or reasons.
As I wrote in my previous post the Vision Gallery will exhibit Visionary artists from all over the world, and I have been fortunate enough to be included.
Two artists that I have long admired, Robert Venosa and Martina Hoffmann are giving a presentation entitled, “Some History, Thoughts and Images on Visionary Art“.
They will also be running a workshop, “Sketching the Fantastic” in which participants will be guided in exploring a simplified, exciting technique which provides a rapid entry into the magic of sketching, as well as allowing access to one’s innermost, intuitive visions. Anybody can participate.
The Visionary Art Culture Creators Panel will explore the new world of visionary culture with a fascinating panel discussion about the place where art present meets art future. As a catalytic force in the co-creation of planetary culture, visionary art may be a key to unlocking the secrets of what is to come.
I have also been invited to participate as one of the panelists. The panel will be moderated by Delvin Solkinson and feature the other following speakers, Laurence Caruana, Carey Thompson, Luke Brown and Jen Zariat.
The Boom Festival runs from the 11th to the 18th of August, in Portugal.
