Robert Trammell led the founding of WordSpace, along with Adrienne Cox Clay, Jerry Kelley and a few other close friends in 1994. Trammell was as an advocate for city funded arts organizations and programmed his new arts organization in close collaboration with Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture. His complete works are housed at Austin College and have been included in numerous anthologies. His legacy continues today. WordSpace remains committed to Robert Trammell’s perspectives to pay Dallas writers and his focus on
contemporary thought, human rights values, sustainable environment and explorations in imaginative language, its fusions and interdisciplinary cross pollinations. These values have characterized WordSpace programming from the start and continue to day.
This event features a few historic artist friends of Robert’s from the world of Dallas intelligentsia, all of which who have been active collaborators in WordSpace programming since the beginning.
