s6k Arts News

s6k Arts is a collective with the mission to assist and be a resource to the global arts community, though our primary focus will be in the US. For many years, only a rare few spoke out about the serious structural problems with the business and funding of the arts, specifically in the United States. We feel it's our responsibility to walk in their footsteps.

s6k Arts News is an organically growing archive of artistic ideas, media, commentary and experiences. Our content comes from our network partners, many of them industry veterans, in nearly every part of the "entertainment industry." They are all dedicated to protecting and healing the arts community they [we] have such reverence for. We define "entertainment industry" in the most broad terms; legal, business, media, tech and production, promotional, venue ownership/management, marketing, conceptual, and performance.

We provide thoughtful arts conversations [a number with art culture legends], production information, art culture news & commentary, as well as strategies and tools to help people create, own and profit from their art. Of course, there's some humor thrown in... because we deal with the problems of the world so we can enjoy the beautiful gift of Earth we've been blessed with!

Your feedback will enable us to enhance our tactical vision in our struggle to preserve the existence of "pure art for art sake" in the United States...before it is devoured by people who seem to be primarily interested in artistic expression that is conceived to feed the hype machine.

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, 'What is Politics ?' Dad says, 'Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I am the head of the family, so call me The President. Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government . We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People . The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class . And your baby brother, we will call him the Future. Now think about that and see if it makes sense.'

Jun 28 2006 Sleater Kinney calls it quits contributor:tamra spyvey
I admit there were times I was jealous of them. From the start they had (the at the time almighty in the underground) Kill Rock Stars in their corner. They received the unalloyed blessing of all riot grrrl contingents and never knew as I did what it was like to be shunned over false rumors. They got to open for Sonic Youth and they toured the world.

May 27 2006 Musicians with Nothing to Say contributor:tamra spyvey
I've been reading an amazing book The Culture of Make Believe by Derrick Jensen, I highly recommend it to anyone. Jensen unflinchingly digs into the tangled history of money and violence. Telling the story of a black woman in Georgia in 1918 who after her husband was killed by the Klan vowed revenge and then was abducted, hung up, had her belly slit open with a pork knife and her eight month old fetus's head stomped in front of her before being tortured to death, Derrick doesn't blame racism alone. He points out that some very fertile land was abandoned shortly after when the black community fled the area.

May 11 2006 Indentured servitude contributor:tamra spivey
One of the things that sucks most about Viacom (MTV and VH1) is the way they use new talent. You probably already know the way they screwed Matt Judge out of making any money on the Beavis and Butthead cartoon. Essentially they have various ways of gathering together promising young talent and the deal they cut goes like this: we give you a shot at the big time you give us your first born child. The price for admission to the big boy club is your first hit belongs to the man.

We used to have a number of venues to play at locally; The Burrito Connection, Rush's, The Tiki House.. The burrito connection isn't having shows for a while because they lose money, Rush's closed down, and the city closed the Tiki House.
