Where does the 2-3-2 Partnership start? It's a hard question, on par with asking where an ocean wave starts, meaning that the genesis of a multidimensional collaborative project cannot be attributed to one particular moment.
Or can it?
During several conversations, your host, Alex Handloff learned that a bar in Chama, NM was the location of a foundational moment in the 2-3-2's formation. No better way to find out than to visit the bar, explore Chama, and talk to the people who live there.
In this episode, A Bar in Chama, Alex investigates what the idea of community and identity mean in the 2-3-2 landscape, with an interview of local Chama personality, Sage Faulkner. Was the 2-3-2 a creation or a culmination? Was it emergence or convergence? Listen to learn more.
A special thanks to Sage Faulkner, Page Buono, and Fosters Hotel and Bar.
