WHY

            

WHY

"You have to do stuff that average people don't understand, because those are the only good things"

Andy Warhol

Why go to the middle of nowhere, in the center of Europe? Because we don't let you turn on your laptop around the campfire at night. There are too many stars to watch, stories to share, and dreams to dream.


Because there are children born in major cities today who not only prefer the cement of playgrounds to grass parks, but are afraid of the greeness beneath their feet. Because I meet more and more adults who say "Can I come to summer camp?" Because when we create, it is making the intangible tangible; a note on the horn, electricity from the sun, a line into a sculpture. We use that other side of our brain that is intuitive, emotive, and expressive- all things arguably needed for the future of our species.


ArtMill is a place to create. It doesn't have to be art, but whatever you do here, or take away, it will change the world, one molecule at a time. And we are committed to that: making the planet a safe place for all, and teaching sustainability along the way. Our non-profit, ArtDialogue takes ArtMill's philosophy out into the world, via exhibitions, catalogues, events, and workshops. We bring people and ideas back to our Center for Sustainable Creativity and mix it up in a green environment that challenges the idea that one has to be in a metropolis to make a difference.
