We are trying to raise $2,500 for an art project called the Trade Parade.

The Trade Parade of Ecuador We are trying to raise $2,500 for an art project called the Trade Parade. The concept is to work with local artists in Quito, Ecuador to create an art parade. We will spend two weeks in workshops developing and trading skills and ideas. We will be making musical instruments, masks, and floats from found or recycled materials and objects from the surrounding environment . This project will support and foster emerging artists in communities from South America. With your help this will be our third international project. Our budget includes materials, shipping, and the creation of a fanzine and film documentary of this project. The more we raise, the bigger the project can become.  

What will you get? • Credit in our fanzine as a supporter • Signed copies of our books • Signed copies of our films • Clothing The Antagonist Movement was formed in 2000 to create venues for emerging artists within unknown and overlooked communities. We need your help, and if you know of any artists from Ecuador who might be interested in this project please pass on our information. Thank you.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

1. Money is always our biggest issue. The artists involved have to take time off from work, pay for their own flights and housing. The size and scope is in direct correlation to the amount of money we raise. If we do go over our goal, this project will be that much better. We keep our minds focused on the end result, and our history backs this up.
2. This would be our 3rd international project, and 10th outside of New York City. The logistics of organizing a large group of artists is daunting but we always overcome by concentrating on the creative side. Our two previous films even document the problems when they do arise, but we channel the solutions so that other artists who follow can see that, through it all, the artistic goal can be reached.
3. Coordinating with people far away from us is always a challenge. Regardless of how much money we raise, problems that arise thousands of miles away are difficult to cope with. But in the end we will build a new bridge for all artists involved, and it’s a learning experience for the next project we take on.

    The Dolls Of Lisbon (DVD signed) The Dolls of Lisbon portrays a collective of international artists who were each given a blank canvas doll and asked to create a unique piece of art, the culmination of which was then displayed at an annual art fair in Lisbon, Portugal. The larger story – a story almost every artist knows well – is the struggle to create art while surviving in a monetarily based world. Through interviews and live art events, the viewer experiences the frustration of artists to maintain their creative inspiration and passion while keeping a roof over their head and food on their plate. In a world of art commercialization and fiscal greed, these artists literally bleed their art to do what they love.

    Barstool Prophets (book signed) Barstool Prophets is a rowdy, raw, honest, sad and funny memoir of true events. The story follows the lives of a wild spectrum of characters, narrated by a young writer working in a bar in New York’s East Village. Barstool Prophets chronicles this iconic neighborhood over a period of 20 years, from its seedy early 1990s to its recent gentrification into a Manhattan hot spot. From the love-addled bartender to the suicidal doorman to the junkies in Tompkins Square Park, all are family, with the accompanying joys and dysfunctions.

    Rich Boy Cries For Momma (book signed copy) Set in Washington, D.C. during the turbulent 1980s, Rich Boy Cries for Momma is a coming of age novel told from the perspective of the good son turned teenage punk rocker. While the “nice” kids of the Washington elite bully and reject him because of his dyslexia, the punk rock scene accepts him as he is. This fast-paced novel pulls us into the protagonist’s dangerous and erratic new world, filled with violence and drugs, while remaining funny and heartwarming. A disparate cast of characters—the rich, powerful, and successful, to the beaten, broken, and besmirched—become entangled in the punk rock subculture. We follow alongside our somewhere-in-between narrator as he wades through his learning disability, and navigates relationships that sometimes betray his perceptions, sometimes break his heart, and sometimes save his life. Rich Boy Cries for Momma features ink and paper drawings that capture the essence of D.C. during the 1980s. The book also contains the lyrics of more than two dozen songs of the hard-core punk rock bands of that era.
