THE VANUATU PACIFICA FOUNDATION and TANNA CENTER FOR THE ARTS
Vanuatu is a four-hour flight from Sydney. For centuries, the Naihné People of Tanna have lived on this island in Vanuatu’s southern-most province, Tafea.
In late 2009, their leadership invited Paul D. Miller (aka DJ Spooky) to form an artists retreat within their remote eastern territory.
In early 2011, Vanuatu Pacifica Foundation will begin building Tanna Center for the Arts in this beautiful and isolated part of the island. The artists retreat will function as a carbon negative, culturally supportive demonstration model, incorporating a digital media lab and island-restorative education center to aid the goals expressed by the people of this tropical paradise.
