I am contacting you because I see that you are based in Spain and invite you to join our group on www.storygardenz.com, which is a project about special places with a special story and a living voice. Storygardenz are preferably residential for two reasons (1) because a period of days and nights are needed to slow people down, and metabolize the story, and change their perspective (2) to connect storytelling with the tourist industry to promote its value and also to help generate revenue.
The project began in Italy with our own Storygardenz (RVS and Bel Poggiolo) and spread to Great Britain and other countries. A number of institutions have joined the project (eg. the Ruskin Foundation/Brantwood and the Italian Ministry of Culture). But we have nothing in Spain.
I have published one book on these themes and 2 more next year. A U.S. full feature film (“Going DA-DO”) has just been completed on this project and my work and will be beginning at the Sundance Festival.
Please write to me if you would like to be involved and I will tell you more.
