Brad Kik is co-director of ISLAND: Institute for Sustainable Living, Art and Natural Design. He and his wife Amanda have led the organization for the past several years, along with its many volunteers and supporters. As their website states:
ISLAND is a non-profit arts and ecology center dedicated to connecting people with nature, art and community. ISLAND helps people become native to place by:
- supporting artists — visionaries, conceptual explorers and compelling communicators — with dedicated time, space and resources to create new work;
- restoring the old and developing the new skills and traditions of community self-reliance;
- creating and sharing a broad collection of tools for ecological living.
On this episode, we speak with Brad about the organization, along with its history, goals, programs and upcoming projects.
