What is Doug Up To?

At 12:32pm on May 3rd, 2008, Doug Banner said…

The Voices of the Ancestors Oral History Project just complete the Ninth concert "Connecting to the Land" stories of the early pioneer farmers of Whatcom County for the Whatcom Historical Society a group dedicated to the preservation of Historical Sites in Whatcom County, Washington. From this concert we will be moving to two more collection projects.
One for the 100 year anniversary of a local School District and another for the 125 year anniversary of the local Episcopal Church in Bellingham.

We continue to offer free monthly concerts which have now moved to the main branch of the city library in Bellingham. We are now in our 5th year of this public outreach concert series. The collaboration with the Library system has been a great addition to our community support network.

I am continuing to keep my connections to China alive and well and plan on going back in September.

On the personal front I am beginning to work more in the area of documentary film making. One team just finished the shooting of one film on cultural transformations. A second team has begun work on a film about the efforts of a local Native American group to establish a national holiday to recognize the contributions of native wisdom and Indigenous peoples to or country. For more information see:

So that's Doug Banner in a nut shell. Add to this that my wife Lyn and I are raising our now 4 and 1/2 year old granddaughter an it paints a pretty exciting life.

I have heard said that the Great Spirit put us on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things. At this rate I am bound for immortality.

Best wishes to you all.

When your art is "working"

I am currently working on a project here in Bellingham, Washington, and I am seeking feedback to the following question:

"What elements are present when artists reach a point where their art is "working," that is, when their art reaches a state of flow?
