'I see ... And why did you choose to be in a lighthouse? Who looks after it?'
'It had to be a lighthouse because we are all light-workers. Electricity for the light is generated as members spark off each other. The more we interact, the more energy is generated and the brighter the light,' your guide explains. 'And we all look after it together, with a caretaker to oversee everything.'
So ... how does this lighthouse with its different areas translate to an online environment?
I think the question may be answered by looking at some further questions :
WHY ATTRACT MORE ARTISTS?
In order to help promote, inspire and support them in their personal, artistic and humanitarian endeavours. As a mutual exchange, we encourage them to do the same.
To find artists who are inspired by IDEA to the extent that they want to involve and help spread the word, we need numbers. Not everyone who signs up for membership will engage in the community side, which is fine. (They may already have a network of support and inspiration.) But if we set out clearly the benefits of engagement, this will at least give members the option.
The more we engage with one another, the more energy is created.
The more energy, the more others will be attracted.
The more others are attracted, the more members.
The more members, the more people to engage … the more energy
WHAT EXACTLY ARE WE ATTRACTING PEOPLE TO?
IDEA's manifesto (yet to be agreed upon) :
We are a community of visual and performing artists, artisans and writers on a path of expanding consciousness, with a common goal to co-create a better world.
We encourage and support one another with compassion, generosity, kindness and humour in order to realize our highest personal and creative potentials for the full flourishing of all of life.
HOW DO WE ATTRACT MORE ARTISTS, generate energy/electricity for the lighthouse & care for the fabric?
By interacting with one another. Chiefly via our Public Facebook page and Closed Group:
PUBLIC FACEBOOK PAGE
Generosity - Liking and especially Commenting on posts and from time to time Sharing posts on our own Timelines (ie generate interest around other artists and they'll do the same for you)
