Sitka Fellows Program, Summer 2014

For seven weeks, Richard took part in a multi-disciplinary residency where he was granted room, board and 24/7 studio space to work on music, playwriting, poetry, and tarot studies. While in residence, he led six poetry writing workshops, did a dozen formal tarot card events, produced a new book of poetry, a new album’s worth of songs, arranged a set of other songs for upcoming recording sessions, performed music at myriad venues throughout and around town (including an international music festival), took part in hosting numerous radio shows on KCAW, was the subject of two hour-long radio shows about his work, and deepened his study of the tarot and its integration with his artistic processes.
