Firelane Music & Media Entertainment in collaboration with City Limits Clothing Presents…

The DREAM CREATE INSPIRE Tour

Firelane Music & Media Entertainment LLC is an independent recording company  that specializes in creating  innovative lanes for artists to authentically connect their work to international markets. Our mission is to entertain, provide exposure, and build community by curating soul enriching experiences. 

City Limits Clothing Co. is a socially conscious-oriented clothing brand that centers around the idea of trying, empowering others and embracing positivity.  Our mission is to encourage you to BE: Be Empowered, Be Encouraged, Be a Dreamer, Be Creative, Be an Inspiration, but most of all, BE You. 

Firelane Music & Media Entertainment and City Limits Clothing are bridging music, fashion and education to build community and encourage people to live in their purpose and share their gifts.

OUR PLAN

In order to bring this tour to life, we will implement 3 main frameworks that represent the intent and hopes we have for ourselves and our communities.

DREAM is about the music. There will be 8 amazingly dope shows in 8 unique venues in 8 major cities across the U.S. Each show will feature local performers who will receive paid stipends for their contributions. 

CREATE is about collaboration. At each venue, we will provide free vending space for small local businesses. We will also partner with yoga collectives, visual artists, and dancers for an interactive experience.

INSPIRE is about the youth. In each city, we will be providing interactive programming at schools by connecting students across the country with leaders in different industries for inter-generational conversations. To top it off, we will give students a chance to work on their DREAM by CREATING in our songwriting workshops and participating in mentoring seminars. We will also perform acts of service in each community focused on youth development and opportunity. 

OUR WHY

When chasing a dream, connection is key. In trying to make a lasting impact, create social change, and create opportunities for ourselves as well as future generations, we must include different aspects of community. Our approach is unique in that it takes into account the different ways people interact with the things that motivate and inspire them. The DREAM CREATE INSPIRE team is comprised of people from different generations, different professions, and different backgrounds, but we share the desire to pursue our dreams while holding space for others to do the same. As we have all grown and had our own experiences, collaboration has been our inspiration to keep going, to make changes, and even to start over. The DREAM CREATE INSPIRE tour allows us to host similar experiences on a larger scale in cities around the US.

The purpose of this Kickstarter is to raise funds to take the DREAM CREATE INSPIRE experience on a Spring 2019 tour throughout the U.S. On the tour, we will not only bring out local artists and vendors to participate in performances at some of the best venues across different cities, we will also host educational and mentorship experiences on each stop, in addition to providing acts of service in the communities we visit.

OUR NEED  

We want to be able to bring DREAM, CREATE, INSPIRE to LIFE and we want YOU to be a part of the experience! In order to make this happen we need to: rent venues, adequately compensate participating creators, book flights and lodging, provide merchandise, mail out promotional items, and purchase local ad space to promote the show dates.

OUR TIMELINE

DREAM CREATE INSPIRE Tour Launches March 15,  2019!!!

BUDGET STATEMENT

Proceeds from this Kickstarter will go toward giveaways for students, paid stipends for musicians, promotion, travel, and lodging for the team. As people contribute their time, energy and talents, we want to make sure they are fairly compensated. If we exceed the donation goal, we will be able to add cities to the tour and get more dreamers involved.   

STRETCH GOALS 

$20,000 - 10 total cities

$30,000 - 16 total cities

FOR THE DREAMERS, CREATORS, AND INSPIRERS

“When you can’t go forward, and you can’t go backward, and you can’t stay where you are without killing off something deep and vital in yourself, you are on the edge of creation.”    

– Sue Monk Kidd

Some people don't have them.  They don't know what it feels like.  They walk through life searching aimlessly for their purpose.  Their calling. Some sort of vision.  It's true—some people don't dream.  

But then there are those of us whose dreams are so uncomfortably uncommon that we seem naïve for even having them, let alone chasing them. You know those of us with the wicked jump shots and rhyming in the hallways.  Those of us telling jokes on the stoop or singing at church.  Yeah that's us—the dreamers.  We're the one's whose parents tell us to have a backup plan, you know just in case this crazy idea doesn't work out. We are the ones that chase our dreams through unopened windows.  We know what it means to be naïve in a world full of possibilities.

What do you know about being addicted to a dream? Having a passion that is so strong that even when you say you're done, it keeps pulling you back. This is about what it means to build a team—not just a crew, a forreal team— with marketing experts, graphic designers, managers, PhDs that when assembled properly, can curate some of the brightest ideas in the world. No rules. No guidelines.  We keep trying.  We keep hoping. Even though there is a part of us that is saying, what’s the point. We continue to push on. One step farther.  

That is what this experience is about. It's for the dream chasers. Those of us on the edge of creation. Those of us who want to inspire future generations to reach even higher. Welcome to the Dream Create Inspire Tour.  It can mean whatever you want it to mean, but for us, right now, it means that if the door won't open for me and my team then we climbing through each and every window. One by one. Over and over again. Only question now is, are you with us?

 ~The Dream Create Inspire Team 

Risks and challenges

The main challenge that will come with this project is maintaining our timeline. We have set deadlines that we have every intention of meeting, but with so many moving parts, timing may change at certain points. If we do encounter any delays or major changes, we will be transparent and keep you all updated about any amendments to the timeline.
