The success of this plan is dependent on the speed at which we can grow.
Invest in tomorrow today and help us make 2017 a killer year
Once we meet this goal we can launch our event series featuring you, the artists. This milestone will allow us to buy a HD Live Stream rig capable of 360 video to showcase local artists around the city while on stage, in conversation, or in the studio. A small production team will travel around the city everyday live streaming our supporters as they invite us. We will also use this fund to book Nappy Roots for a private performance and interview only for you our supports in our event series "The Seed". Only those who invest will receive access to the show physically, or through HD 360 Live Stream. This will also launch our patreon page, where we will focus on private shows with mainstream and local artists for our supporters.
As we spread our silent campaign across the country, we will continue to focus on getting our first location in DC. This next milestone will allow us to secure the building and start construction on the first gym for artists. Our design encompasses state of the art technology for the best quality live productions, while still feeling like your home away from home.
This milestone will allow us to build out 10 private studios for artist residencies, and our state of the art studio on the lower level of the new gym for artists. Once complete our artist partners willl be able to curate incredibly unique events, inviting DMV to our new home.
Constructing the upper levels to serve a wide range of artists with a computer lab, server room, flex-studio space, lounges, and martial arts/dance studio, will all be possible once we reach this milestone. We will also have the funds to further the development of our App, giving us the ability to push our art community even further.
Once we reach this milestone we can start our states tour. Depending on where our supporters are from around the country, we can plan to visit with our production team, giving a stage to many artists, and building connections for future partnerships. Back in DC we can begin working on our artist hostel, giving our out of town guest a one stop shop of artistry.
At this milestone we will have had some time to work out the organization structure and start looking for a new city to partner with. Each location will follow the structure of 90 artist partners, and a facility management team. For our next location we really need to attract the right artists, who know what their city needs.
- Instrumental and vocal lessons
- Visual Art Lessons
- Live and Runway model training
- auto mechanic training
- cooking classes
- growing and edible classes
- graphic design.
- Science lab (teaching the community how to test their own blood)
- App and Web Design
- Creative Business management and development.
- THE SEED: A Live Performance and Interview Platform inviting main stream artists to DC to pick their brains about their success. (Nappy Roots headlines our first implementation)
- and much more!
Each of our programs will be live streamed and recorded for our virtual and physical members.
Our First rendition of The Seed will be featuring NAPPY ROOTS! a hip-hop group that has managed to stay together and support their community through their success. We will consistently be booking artists of mindset and artistic caliber, only increasing with fame of the artist as we are able to afford it. We'd love our next show to feature Solange, The Roots, or both! but we can't do it without you. Help us raise the funds and silently spread the word as much as possible, and based off the response in your city, we'll try to bring the whole show to your city!

ROOFTOP HYDRO-GARDENThis Milestone will allow us to Build out the Rooftop Hostel Design, giving us revenue and a new integration of artistic support by providing a creative hub for traveling artists. We want to be a hub for DC creative community. Using Shipping containers, a recycled material, and solar panels over each roof on the building we will build a state of the art facility that doesn't kill the environment.
One of the Shipping Pod designs we'd love to incorporate is a green pod. Powered sustainably, we can grow quality fruits and veggies for our community.
