Hi, I'm a 23 year old graduate from England, I'm a practicing Artist currently working between Newcastle and London. I'm looking to visit Vegas and do some research for a few weeks, take some photos (a lot of my work is centered around photography as a primary method of gathering material).
I will be applying to the Arts Council over here for funding of some kind or a grant, but additionally I'd love to come to Vegas on my own terms.
So I guess what I'm asking is if any of you fine people could point me in the right direction/ suggest cheap places to stay or even better- be willing to put up a struggling artist on their sofa for a night...I am perhaps naively trusting in the human nature, I know, but part of my practice is to explore cultural anthropology, 'purposeful dis-locatation' and plain old fashioned human nature, in all its glory!
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please get back to me! I've also tired contacting Nevada University over there to try and set up some kind of exchange, to little o veil...
