Check out this new Artsquare interview with MetaFour's Creative Team Member, Bruce Dean. We are so proud of the breadth of his talents and the depth of his words. https://blog.artsquare.com/behind-the-canvas-interview-artist-bruce-dean/
MetaFour has so SO much going on (said they with a commitment to post more frequently), including some wonderful events and partnerships that have occurred over the last months!!
Starting with today's find, we scored a nice photo in LA Weekly of our "Beyond Walls Photo and Video Project" from the Brewery Art Walk, which was held on October 25 & 26, 2014. Check out three of the four founding MetaFour members from the link below: Julie Drake, Carmen Dean, and Eric Luke. Board members Judy AmicAngelo, Joana Rivas, Tricia Horton, plus many other friends, visited and assisted over the weekend.
Many thanks to the Brewery Art Walk Association and our newest board member, Kristine Shomaker, for the partnering opportunity to get the word out about BeyondWallsOnline.org, our online environment for youth to post creative works about world issues.

On December 20 MetaFour Productions was honored as Partner of the Year by the Western Justice Center, a non-profit corporation founded by a group of judges and lawyers involved with the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Throughout the year we have been pleased to be able to present seminars to students and teachers, bringing our Beyond Walls curriculum of multimedia presentations designed to promote cultural appreciation among members of diverse communities and elicit an appreciation of commonalities and differences in a global community. Western Justice's mission to increase the opportunity for peaceful conflict resolution and displace the power of violence in our society makes them a perfect partner for MetaFour, and we are honored to have been recognized by them.
