The Vision for Casa Monte Tabor
We are creating a compelling brand around the Casa Monte Tabor in an effort to save it . This started with a month-long outreach effort in Ticino in August 2011 as well as our current efforts in building awareness of the project in Los Angeles .
We are currently adapting Julie Gilbert’s seminal work on Remarque & Goddard into a demo-screenplay and are also working in concert with existing Remarque institutes, libraries and organizations in Europe and the United States, to make the Casa Monte Tabor a vibrant centerpiece for Remarque and Goddard’s legacy .
The reach of the Casa Monte Tabor will be wide ranging . The residence will have access to the Brissago Islands on Lago Maggiore as well as be linked up to other cultural organizations in Switzerland, Germany and the United States .
The intent of the Casa Monte Tabor project is to create an artists’ residence, museum and learning center that fosters the themes of freedom, peace and creativity that both Remarque & Goddard cherished – one that ensures their cultural legacy for generations to come .
