WOW we did it!!! $4000 in less than 24 hrs. Now what?
WOW!!! You got us there! In LESS THAN 1 DAY we raised more than $4000 to push us past our goal of $10,000. In short, you rock! We're so grateful for such an amazing community.
The $10,000 ensures that we can cover the costs of the move, the build-out, and core space-related expenses for a year. But why stop there? Anything we raise above that amount will go directly to new projects.
We have a new goal: we're aiming to raise another $5,000 to cover upcoming projects related to Occupy Wall Street. And we have 2 days left to do it!
Occupy Wall Street has captured the public imagination like nothing in recent memory. This is the opportunity we have been waiting for: a chance to transform the existing social political landscape and build a mass movement for economic justice. For years Not An Alternative has collaborated with activists, artists, and community groups to produce aesthetics that function tactically and symbolically, and actions that serve to frame a message in a compelling and visual way.
some mischief up our sleeves: interventions on privately owned public
spaces, projects relating to eviction defense and home re-occupations,
collaborations with community groups like Picture The Homeless, Organizing
for Occupation, and Take Back the Land and with artists and designers
like John Hawke, DSGN AGNC, The Yes Lab, and others, and national level
coordination and interventions with other #occupy cities.
We're setting out sights higher: an additional $5000 will allow us to implement some of the creative activist projects we've been incubating, to leverage this historic moment and help build a mass movement.
While $5000 won't get us all the way, it will allow us to roll out some of the ideas we've been cooking up immediately, and take this work to the next level. Can you help make it happen? Some ideas:
1. Post the kickstarter video on Facebook and Twitter: http://kickstarter.com/projects/naa/nospace
