It may be a little unclear what the intent of the the Hostel Art House idea is…

I do have a goal and I would love you to be a part of it…

The goal, put simply, is to create a community movement based on people.

People being people;

people being good;

and doing  good;

and being good at what they do (good? Good)…

Let’s break it down into some structure, rules, guidelines, or just some whim’s of mine:

– if you’re a good person, you’re good with people (right? Right)

– if you’re good you tend to do good things;  laugh, play, make, create, teach, tutor, mentor, etc…

– if you do good things you can benefit others with your what you do; servitude*

*Let’s switch the serve from serve to servitude, it reminds me of attitude and service. Or service with attitude!

Okay..?  Okay!

Awesome! Now what? Well… I developed this theme and I thought the concept would work well into a community of a sort. It would work both for the digital and the real world environment. The conceptual ground work would be sharing your “do good”… Demonstrate your process, reveal (a little) of your, ‘how’. We’ll leave the, ‘why’ out for now… Example’s abound in the digital world! I believe it’s why we have ideas like the creative commons license as a result. It works well and establishes a great collaboration of ideas starting from a source…

Let’s share some kung fu. Yep! Not martial art’s, mind you… Kung fu.

I will start: I am an artist by intent. I make, do, create, display, discover, produce and express art! I fit art naturally. Josh Fitz Art… Pdump-pump-sheesh..! Lately, I’ve discovered art to be (simply) an expression.  A very unique and human expression. It is at the core. It’s in our hearts, our guts, our mind. Yep, I said guts! It takes gut’s to make/do good art. Sometimes you even have to make do, to do art. And that level of expression leaves an impression on others. They can see it, feel it, and take it for all it’s worth. The attempt with limitations…

But there doesn’t have to be limitations. Well some limitations are a good practice (everything in moderation). Keep in mind there are others already doing art and GOOD art! I feel given a place to share their process we could have a good thing going.

To take part in this endeavor you would have to have a passion to teach, tutor,  mentor, or just simply share. I enjoy it personally. I could spend entirely too much time sharing my skills, and I’m not afraid to share either. I constantly learn new skills and replace the old ones with time.

Information is floating all around let’s hold it down! Clear communication is a must. We, as a community, can achieve and improve this together, if we’re lacking in any way (i.e. a wiki).

-The group improvement movement…

This would be a place to share our process  through demonstrational**, tutorial, instructional. People could learn from your skill set and you would learn from their learning… Yeah, it does actually work. People could improve your process! Make comments share results. Clean up the edges. And patients, yes you could develop patients. If you’ve had art critiques from your peers before you could imagine mentor, tutoring and teaching critiques.

** I make words up, so what?

Now comes the fun part. If you share a lot you would get the attention, networking and leads to develop what you do for others. People could requisition your servitude for teaching, creating, and developing a project or a process. If it works well a free market just opened up for sharing what you love.  This is quintessentially a consultant position. Now imagine how useful a tool: an open source consultant would be.

It’s just a thought for now… A hopefully humble idea. There is room for improvement, I know.

If you have some suggestion that would be awesome.

If you think it’ll never fly, tell me why!

In the end of all this rambling, jumbled circumlocution… I would love this place to exist as an open resource center for learning directly from people at what they, ‘do good’…


If you get the message and can offer some assistance please feel free to contact me…

Talk to you soon,


Josh Fitz
