ERIK DAVIS news

From Erik:

“How does visionary art help us create community? Art and performance can not only inspire and delight — they can transform your level and quality of engagement with the world and with others. Infused by the thrum of primal myths and rituals, a few powerful creators are opening our eyes to the possible, reforging community in a society driven into pockets of isolation. These calls, where participants are encouraged to direct practical questions at guests, will explore visions as well as concrete steps people can take today – on the personal, local and planetary levels.

“Take part in a week of remarkable encounters [starting today, July 30], hosted by the acclaimed author and culture critic, Erik Davis. Featured guests include visionary painter Alex Grey, author and ritualist Antero Alli, neo-tribal festival producers Debra Gusti (Harmony Festival) and Jen Zariat (Symbiosis), and the legendary Larry Harvey, founder of annual Burning Man festival.

About Jay Babcock

I am the co-founder and editor of Arthur Magazine (2002-2008, 2012-13) and curator of the three Arthur music festival events (Arthurfest, ArthurBall, and Arthur Nights) (2005-6). Prior to that I was a district office staffer for Congressman Henry A. Waxman, a DJ at Silver Lake pirate radio station KBLT, a copy editor at Larry Flynt Publications, an editor at Mean magazine, and a freelance journalist contributing work to LAWeekly, Mojo, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Vibe, Rap Pages and many other print and online outlets. An extended piece I wrote on Fela Kuti was selected for the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000 anthology. In 2006, I was one of five Angelenos listed in the Music section of Los Angeles Magazine's annual "Power" issue. In 2007-8, I produced a blog called "Nature Trumps," about the L.A. River. Today, I live a peaceful life in the rural wilderness of Joshua Tree, California, where I am a partner in JTHomesteader.com with Stephanie Smith.
