Support your friends: (SPAN) Social Practices Art Network

Part of my reasoning at Notes on Looking is to learn more about the world. My friend Jules Rochielle posted on Facebook the other day a request that I ‘Like” a community called (SPAN) Social Practices Art Network. I trust Jules, I like the sound of the name, I ‘Liked’ it and now I am cutting and pasting the website so we can all learn something about Social Practices Art Network. Click around, read up, there’s a good chance friends will comment who are involved. Our world will grow and we’ll all have more to think about. Cheers!
