PEACE Concert 2017
As we tread through an increasingly polarizing atmosphere in America, rising global tensions and alarming shifts in our Earth's health, most of us don't know where to begin as an individual. But therein lies the paradox: we can only bring about change if we work as a whole. We are stronger together.
On November 11th (11/11), we're organizing an all-ages Peace Concert in Los Angeles called STRONGER. A chance to stand in solidarity and experience the strength of community. A reminder that we made it through a chaotic 12 months together, exactly one year after the election, and we’re more united than ever before. A celebration of who we are, as individuals and as one. A day of truth.
Our intention is to encourage respect for Earth and each other, celebrating diversity and equality and creating space for voices that are rarely given a platform. Focusing on meaningful action. Discovering ways each of us can give back, think more empathically and live more consciously. It only takes one seed to create a forest.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11th
Location TBA | Los Angeles
INTENTION / ACTION
The event will revolve around live music being the connective glue. Joni Mitchell once spoke on the power of music by saying, “Woodstock was a spark of beauty” where people could see “that they were part of a greater organism.” We'll also be curating keynote speakers, visual artists and performers, all programmed cohesively with strong messaging tied throughout. Artists will be a mixture of local heroes and international performers who are active in the human rights and environmental space.
One of our biggest objectives is what happens once the day ends. Our aim is to have attendees leave feeling educated and inspired - confident about how to show up day-to-day with an active mindset, and where to direct their energy after the festival. Booths will be set up for local/national activist movements and environmental organizations for attendees to collect information and use new resources to work toward a bigger purpose.
We are aiming to produce a green event - as Zero Waste as possible. We will even build stages that utilize green energy and leave the smallest footprint possible. Our Main Stage will be powered by “bicycle generators” - a sound system that relies on power from up to 25 people on generator bikes. We’ll additionally set up an acapella/unplugged stage.
