Todd Thomas Brown
Everyone gets a hunch from time to time, a recurring voice telling us something, but what supports allows a person to follow it? How can we find ways to suport and nourish our own creative hunches? In fact, why not create a network that revolves around the development of creative hunches an the projects they inspire, one where people can participate in myriad ways and at varying levels?
Brown’s experience spans 20 years of exploring artistic disciplines and presenting small-scale arts events within the context of local and global communities. Brown is a founder of the Red Poppy Art House and the Mission Arts & Performance Project (MAPP) and is an artistic advisor for the EDELO contemporary art center in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. Together with Meklit Hadero, he leads the music ensemble Nefasha Ayer—The Space of In Between.
