Update: We just need to make it halfway and we have a contributor who will match helping us reach our goal. We are finalizing things and have some other news in the works. Thanks again!
So here we go... The City of Sacramento was gracious enough to provide us with a small grant to throw a 2-day tech art showcase (an art show with interactive installations, experimental music and more), known as Light.wav, June 15th-16th, 2018. The grant is enough to cover taxes, insurance, location costs and misc. fees. That being said, we have to fund the rest of the show from the ground up! Our campaign goal is $6k to help get an additional portion of the finances secured to help make this a great event.
Why are we putting this event on?
We want to give Sacramento what other world-class cities around the world are able to do, by providing a spectacular event focused on digital tech art. We've seen some amazing installations at shows similar to what we have planned and wouldn't it be great to be able to experience here in Sacramento?
The art community has been building up Sacramento to be a thriving city with great events over the past 20 years. With the recent influx of support for art by the whole city, it's time to step it up a notch with Light.wav.
What's going to make this event spectacular?
Our goal is to curate this show with some amazing talented artists from Sacramento and beyond. We have done previous installations at art shows with much success and want this event to act as platform for emerging tech artists in the region.
Imagine an event where one could experience anything from projection mapping, live audio/visual performances, mixed media, interactive installations and much more.
"EVERYDAY IS YOUR CHANCE TO MAKE THIS CITY BETTER" - Reward Campaign
Some of you may have seen this sign downtown on J Street for the last 6 years. We designed and put up the sign on a vacant block at the height of the recession (or should I say the bottom), in hopes of inspiring those around us (this city) with a positive message, "that everyday you can choose to make your life and each others lives better". No matter how big or small your daily choices are, they add up to the big picture. Many people have shared this throughout our community and believed in it. We knew one day the sign would come down but that doesn't mean the signs' purpose has to be done! Six years later, it's been taken down without a word or trace. Our hearts are a little broken, because it meant a lot to us. Several people have been wanting this sign back up and we've been waiting for the perfect time to resurrect it. We think this is a perfect opportunity by offering it as part of our rewards to help fund Light.wav and help... MAKE THIS CITY A LITTLE BETTER!!
As part of the reward campaign we will be creating posters and stickers of the "EVERYDAY.." sign, so we can keep this message alive! Who knows, maybe the sign will appear again. ;-)
