We are raising funds to create this permanent mural and possibly a second mural if funding allows at the Lennon Music Studios on Dore Street in San Francisco, thanks to Sense8 supporter and business owner Carole Lennon. We want to support and help manifest the dream of Sense8 fans worldwide of creating murals in all the cities where the series was shot. The purpose of this project is to keep alive the core message of diversity, connection, unity, empathy and love that the show inspires, to attract new viewers and inspire Netflix to renew the series. 

We hope that the creation of this first permanent Sense8 mural in San Francisco will inspire and encourage others to create their own Sense8 murals around the world. Already a group is working to achieve this in Poland and another one possibly in Chicago.

Deirdre Weinberg, designer of this mural, and many others, is willing to help and advise anyone who is interested in taking the plunge. Please read in "About You" for more information about Ms. Weinbergs work. Together we can do this. "Art is love made public."

Stay tuned for updates here on Kickstarter, by listening to the Sense8 podcast at LiveSense8.com and on our official accounts.

Risks and challenges

The main risk in completing this project is funding. We are asking for $15,000. The mural will be about 30ft X 25ft (9.144m X 7.62m). The money will cover payment to the artist and painters. We will also have some volunteers. The scaffolding alone cost about $1200, in addition to the cost of the paints and supplies, the wall prep, special coating,insurance, copyright, digital documentation and technical assistance. We have 30 days to raise the money. We will not receive any of the pledged money unless we reach our funding goal of $15,000.

Other possible risks can include: wall condition, weather, people who tag the mural, future renovation, repairs on building and mural.

As soon as we are fully funded, we can start the project. We will have the scaffolding up for 1 month and hope to have the mural completed in that time or in as timely a manner as possible.

Any additional money can go to a second mural at Lennon Studios at 468 9th St.
