Railroad Earth—ATL

Railroad Earth—ATL A creative community for over 20 years... Railroad Earth-ATL, since 1997, has been a residence, production facility, art & music venue, and community hub.

It was founded to facilitate the cross-pollination of art, music, science, technology, performance, the humanities, and living. It’s has been known as a “parallel university.”

We believe that the over-specialization that has occurred in the last 150 years is unnatural to the human condition, and we all make our best attempts to be “deep generalists,” polymathic, and beautifully distracted.

Open Positions — U.S. Department of Arts and Culture

ALERT: 3 open positions for creatives at the
US Dept of Art and Culture

Link from my email shared below, which also includes a way to sign up for news and email updates yourself and I recommend "enlisting as a citizen artist."

(Isn't that CUTE?!! I LOVE it. This org here is good n fruitful; I think Neil even got himself a small artist relief grant or something I sent him the application for a few months ago. I recommend this affiliation to every/any/all creative individuals, from the literal starving artists who dream of being famous for their paintings before they die and do all kinds of gigs like uber driving and n**e modeling and tutoring for money, to the social media savvy charming "event planner" types with innate psychology and design understanding, who end up making all unique creators the money needed to continue having opportunities that use their skills and free up the time to do so. I mean it's all marketing, isn't it?! I would bet on it if there were a way, that 95% of success of artists/creatives/gigworkers/entrepreneurs/self-designed career people is from good technology and SEO etc and the right advertising in the right places in the right way; someone has that specific skill to figure out how to take something new and make it sound interesting and normal and appealing to the masses or the people with money or the ones who cause money to be spent on the "artwork" (or writing, or performance piece, or a new type of restaurant with also excellent cuisine, or even a dang invention that we have something really close to but got a bad reputation THINK: F***Y PACKS! so just re-marketed and tweaked, or a new type of website that is exactly like something everyone uses but with "the annoying thing about it" gone and "the needed thing" maybe everyone thought of or maybe nobody did so it is really a genius idea to incorporate this hypothetical feature people use happily and eagerly and pay for.

I realize now that my rambling (I don't really think I am but just have a lot to say and it's important stuff frankly- but I am NOT one of these gifted folks who have innate charm and a talent for gossip etc etc. I fancy myself quite visionary but ideally I gotta find another person or other people to share my ideas, the good ones, with their trusted and likeable and appealing voice. they can take the credit too, but i am not one people want to listen to. I believe I am very gifted in planning, assessing accurately and objectively, envisioning things in new ways that haven't been done before, and I'm very flexible/limber in my thinking this way- can imagine things in a hundred different ways, with different features etc, and foresee the hypothetical results fairly well but would ideally call upon experts with specific knowledge to inform me of the projections. My struggle is most often getting others to imagine whatever the idea is; I find most have great difficulty picturing things without comparing to something they have already experienced, so obviously that doesn't work out for an innovator or inventor, and such a person needs a specially formed team of experts or people equipped with excellence in their work/thoughts to be fruitful advisors... a board! of directors! aha! that is what it is that I am coming around to from the other side I suppose! (That is one of the coolest things about not being too "over-educated," if you will, when you've studied first and read about stuff and therefore know about it in theory VERSUS kinda baking from scratch and coming up with the concepts yourself cuz ur really focused and building/designing/inventing, then u often learn more and have a better understanding, but this is only in my limited experience. Am very aware that it can also be foolish to try to come up with everything individually instead of just taking advantage of the wisdom of many and starting with a standard design that has worked well for hundreds of years. but if u start from scratch u may get lucky and discover something amazing. maybe a better original lightbulb or a smarter business plan or whatever. i don't know how to put it into words exactly right now, but it is just like how i am glad for my understanding of Judeo-Christianity. I DO have experience being raised among the orthodox for a time in both versions, but once I had my series of events making me a "believer," (in what u may ask, so I'll say in The Word and it's divinity- specifically the old and new testaments of the judeo-christian bible, which includes believing Mr Jesus is "alive" and not just another dead rabbi/teacher, but that He is also God in a human form which He did so that He could relate to us as human beings and "be made like His brethren in all things in order to be a faithful and merciful high priest who could make intercession for us (according to the order of Melchizedek- now THAT i will have to look up what it's all about but it IS there and therefore important. Cuz it's The WORD i just pointed out i believed in the divinity of. so i think it's like magic.) ANYWAY, OMG SEE THIS is why i am not "the spokesperson. people don't wanna listen to me after a certain point! OVERWHELMING HUH! yep. but clearly i got stuff going on, and it's a LOT of DETAIL and real thorough. i gotta filter out the stuff that translates to useable ideas for this world in these here times and then get a translator to help make it a "thing" that people will use. gotta take the nerdiness and weirdness out and tune it to Star 94 u know greatest pop hits that most can appreciate and recognize as good harmonious feel-good music and also successful ideas gotta be on a station u can easily turn ur dial to. people gotta be able to tune in or there is not much of a point in being brilliant. who cares how shiny a star is if no one is gonna look at it twinkle? right? OK I LIKE THAT SENTENCE. gotta keep that with chapter titles or song lyrics or website motto or something. like the tree falling in the wood. forest.

When i came to believe, I read the Word FIRST, and then started visiting all kinds of various churches and then compared what they were doing TO THE WORD ITSELF, not to some tradition i was raised in, which is what most people unfortunately do. well it's not unfortunate- actually i envy feeling a part of a religion and being raised in this way of life that an entire community feels is normal and everyone relates. but from a scholar or truthseeker perspective, it is definitely a block on seeing accurately, because people are biased and want to believe the religion they were raised in is "right" and also that if stuff is done differently that makes it "the wrong way." If you start from the INSIDE though, with THE MAP, IE THE WORD ITSELF, then u can see for yourself that most religions are living out what the bible says to do and they just focus on different things and emphasize differently. u can also find that some deliberately go against what is written, and this way w**d out inauthenticity, which i appreciate VERY much, and truly deeply wish everyone would do things this way. (honestly! another cool thing is that u can find out that some religions are practicing in such a different way FROM EACH OTHER but actually BOTH are doing EXACTLY what the Word says to do and in the way it says to do it, so BOTH ARE RIGHT! wouldn't that be such a nice thing to do... find out that so many more people are friends and on the right track, and just so many more people having respect for others who are different and knowing the reason why- having understanding... omg what a beautiful thing that would be.

so anyway, my extremely long-winded verbal selfie here which started out being something to share some artsy job info from rre, is too long and i am sorry. but my analogy is perfect. i could learn a lot about the culture and how to fit into it and maybe even start a church by going to and being part of a church and learning a lot that way, but if i don't join any but read the bible and then visit many and see and understand how they are interpreting things and why they do things the way they do, i might be able to start a church better cuz i have the original map of instructions and ingredients, and i see a lot of higher education as like joining churches and learning from them how to run one- a big successful one. but if u pattern after a successful church rather than The Word itself, THE pattern, u may miss the mark and not design the most excellent church u would have. but chances are u will be more successful piggybacking off the wisdom and experience of prior designers. 2 ways of looking at it. that is why i think of it sometimes as "overeducated" when u learn too much from prior examples and lose the original essence in the process. ideally, everyone will have knowledge of the original recipe and try to always adhere to that in any planning, and try to develop the skill of letting it reveal FLAWS AND SHORTCOMINGS in previous successes. that is actually pretty hard to do.

sorry i wrote all this. i might copy it to a personal page, but i suppose there is no harm in leaving it here as it is relevant to RRE and how we strive to support creatives and artsy entrepreneurs and gigwork etc. i hope sometimes something i muse about will be helpful or inspiring and not just seem silly. njoy if u can... these here my deep thoughts... i confess i got very rambly and too lazy to re-write cuz i don't think it will be read much anyway! but yeah, "enlist" as an artist to this newsletter and u will get cool emails and useful information from time to time. a good org.

Now, when not discouraged or distracted as I so usually am, this is exactly the type of thing I spend time researching, exploring, trying to find some good original ones that would flow out authentically and get a decent response and end up inspiring and enabling many weirdos to settle into some measure of reasonable success in this so often red tape nazified world... excuse the bleak lil mood there won't ya plz.
well that's what i call a good idea. lucky lady coming across it and the right audience. prolly is a fairly enjoyable gig too, especially within her context of course. ;)
