I’m trying to think of some way I can better help out than just forwarding messages. Throw in a free Thickets mp3 to anyone who buys a share? Donate a dollar from each T-Shirt sale to the Heart of the World? An impromptu birthday auction without the birthday? Or I could donate some art? I wish I knew what happened to my 1001 Fundraising Ideas book. Must have traded it in.
Tuesday at the Media Club! (pass it on…)
An impromptu evening of acoustic music with a multimedia showcase of locally shot concert footage by Joel Flynn from the Vancouver indie media collective “the karmafia”. First acoustic set at 8pm followed by a video presentation in support of featuring concert footage from The National, Joseph Arthur, and The Tragically Hip. A second acoustic set will follow at 10 pm, and a potential open acoustic jam for any interested players.
The evening will be in support of “The Heart of the World Theatre” project, see www.foxtongue.com for more info on HotW. Cost $5 or cash donation at the door.
AND THE ONLY WAY IT GETS BUILT IS YOU! (who else is gonna bother? The government? Starbucks? Oprah?) Join us! The Heart of the World is waiting!
To Build it a Theatre
To Give it an Arts Scene
TO SAVE IT FROM ITSELF
We Have One Week Left.
Time is running out! Join the good fight with local hero Jhayne Holmes as she and her band of rebels, miscreants and true believers take on the forces of apathy, real estate and city hall to build this city a future! There’s an old theatre on commercial drive: it can be torn down to make another parking garage, a self-help day retreat for middle managers, or even more housing for the rich. . .
OR IT COULD BE SOMETHING YOU ACTUALLY WANT.
THE HEART OF THE WORLD will be a place where any old artist, actor, film maker, hip kid, kindred spirit, and idea monger can find an outlet (and, more importantly, audience) for the creative endeavour of their choice! There is only one week left to make this idea a reality. Thousands of dollars are being committed and even that may not be enough! Spread the word! Buy shares! Nag your rich friends! Make the city scream for it! The Heart of The World arts centre is a place by the people, of the people and for the people.
AND THE ONLY WAY IT GETS BUILT IS YOU!
