MKE Kre* Kamp (even people there hated that name)--now the real work begins...

I'm home, and I will make sure my children eat before getting into more posts about MKE Kre8 Kamp (the name is not a fault of the participants, believe me) and just wanted to say...

THERE IS HOPE.

Hope in the form of some plans for the future that are actually happening now. Hope in the form of 42 people committing to dig in to make the M7 region (check on my blog post from last night for clarification on that) the envy of other regions for a thriving creative community.

So much to unwrap, so much to look forward to. More thoughts coming, but for now, just know there was actually something different about this discussion than others like it. I believe some things will get done. And I believe the whole artistic community will be a vital part of that process (not vital dammit, one that will mandate change and be heard--SO THERE!)
