About

Greetings and salutations!

Thank you for visiting our Kickstarter!  We'll get right to the DAMNED point...we want to buy Hell (or a part of Hell, MI, rather).

Why, you ask?  Well, initially we wanted to buy an old abandoned church in Detroit to build an art and performance venue that would become home for the annual DAMNED Exhibition, as well as other DAMNED events we host throughout the year.  But then, on Friday the 13th, a divine opportunity appeared which made us think...why rebuild a haven when we can reign in Hell?  I mean, Detroit is great and all, but hell...this is Hell!

Italy has it's Vatican.  Kentucky has it's Creation Museum.  Even Frankenmuth has it's Christmas Wonderland.  But just think of the DAMNED possibilities in Hell!  Perhaps a quaint little bed and breakfast?  How about a year-around Helloween store?  Hell, why not a damn Hell amusement park?  Sure, there's already a wedding chapel, putt-putt course and ice cream parlor, but they do not include real fire and devil girls (or guys)!  

However, our main plan is to design and build an enclosed art space for various grandiose events throughout the year to reform Hell to it's rightful glory.  We have 8 years experience in producing such events working alongside a diversity of amazing Detroit-area talent that include butoh/experimental/aerial performances, introspective local and international fine art, fine dining and formal masquerade balls (check out this link).  The space could also be available to host concerts, conventions, wedding receptions, private parties and whatever the Hell else!

So we ask you, the fine citizens of the world, to help us to unleash Hell 2.0 on Earth.  There are no soul contracts to sign.  No first-borns to give.  We only need your pledge.

Hellelujah and Amen!

NOTE:  Regarding the campaign amount.  The asking realtor price for that property in Hell, MI is currently $999,666.  However,  we added extra to the campaign to help alleviate the Kickstarter fees and some of the building construction costs.

Risks and challenges

The greatest challenge is to obtain the funds. We have great resources within the Detroit area in artisans, designers, builders, performers and others to make this a reality. We have zero doubt that we can create something wondrous in Hell, if given the opportunity. The only limits foreseen are those that may lie within Hell's zoning laws, but every challenge is motivation. And there's no greater challenge than to take on Hell itself.

As for the risks, there are always a few in any venture. For instance, the current owners could sell to someone else, the current asking price could increase to unattainable amounts, crazed zealots could set fire to Hell, the Almighty could flood the whole DAMNED area, etc etc etc. If any problems such as these arise that will prohibit us from purchasing this property, we will cancel this campaign. Otherwise, this is an all-or-nothing campaign. If we match our goal, you will receive the incentives you opted for, perhaps even more. If it does not, you owe nothing, Hell becomes fated to someone else and we fade back into Detroit to continue doing what we've done for the past 8 years.

    Pledge US$ 13 or more About US$ 13

    NEW! Claim your own personal spot in Hell! That's right! For only $13, you can own one square inch of Hell and receive a special personalized certificate signed and sealed by Satan and one of the DAMNED producers. It's perfect for the office and makes a great gift!

    Pledges over $13 will also increment your claim proportionally (ex: $156 = 12 sq inches). After the campaign completes, you choose either one certificate for the total claim or separate certificates per inch bearing other names as gifts. And, as part owner of Hell, you will also be first to be informed of special happenings in Hell before the general public.

    So the next time someone tells you to go to Hell, you can rightfully say "I own part of it!"
