Up to 12 writers in each city have been invited to visit the site and stay for 2 hours. LigoranoReese have asked them to share their thoughts about the disappearance of the American Dream. This part of the project stems from the idea that direct participation comes from active perception, apprehending the moment and leads to democratic action.
Commentary will be posted in realtime here on the meltedaway website and reblogged to ArtsEverywhere.
Poet and writer cris cheek is the Residency Coordinator. This part of the project is supported by the Musagetes Foundation.
