A paper discussing my own experiences of living, and developing a career as an artist, regionally. The paper takes the misquotation "If you build it, they will come", from the Kevin Costner film 'Field of Dreams' as it's starting point - proposing the idea that by staying where you are you can, potentially, do more good than moving to where the action is.
