Activism Potluck Monday, February 14 at Colorado Arts Center

Join our fellow poets, actors, actresses, actors, comedians, artists, movie makers, musicians and other creative people on Monday, Valentine’s Day, in Denver, at the new Colorado Arts Center on the west side of Santa Fe Drive just south of 9th Ave. This is a great big open space, and we’ll have an awesome PA with an open mike format for all political and activist creatives, hosted by Live Animal, aka Chad B. C’mon out and croon your best Bob Dylan and other “truther” tunes for us!

While many of M4F’s projects are seemingly ‘progressive’ we do not close our minds to ideas that are called ‘conservative’ and ‘conspiratorial’— far from it. How can activists be truly well informed with only half the story? We’re happy to host Libertarians, Constitutionalists, and the Green Party folks right next to the Anarchists and Voluntaryists! We have no qualms puttin’ the Disclosure and Paranormal Research Forum folks right next to the John Birch Society and Boycott Wal-Mart tables. Come one, come all!

To sign up for the open mike and reserve a space, please call or text Chad – Live Animal – at 317.918.1715. We’ll allow the usual 3 songs or a 10-minute spot for activists, poets, spoken word, comedians, etc. The theme of your selections should have something to do with bein’ the change we want to see in the world; it could also be observing problems and proposing solutions. Topics that would be appropriate to the problem category, for example, include chemtrails, secret societies, police brutality, advancing tyranny, outa control globalists, GMO food, fiat currency and the Fed, 9/11=inside job, egotistical & controlling people, etc.

It’s unfortunate that there are so many to choose from, huh?

Topics that could be appropriate to the solutions category, for example, include decriminalization, renewable energy, organically-grown food, urban homesteading, alternative currencies, gold, silver, etc. bartering, and the ever-popular golden rule. You can cover classics by our folk and rock heros Bob Marley, John Lennon, Woodie Guthrie, Rush, Rage Against the Machine, etc. – the list goes on and on; or, you can debut your original creations! Be bold, be creative! Be positive! Be hopeful! As long as we are talkin’ about how we perceive the world, and have respect for how others perceive the world, there’s hope.

If you’re a musician but new to activism, you may want to start out by covering some great contemporary political songs from Jordan Page; he has a new CD, Liberty, with lots of future hits for modern music-minded revolutionaries.

If you are an activist, don’t hesitate to bring a fold-up table and your business cards, brochures, etc. for your activist-oriented events, crafts, think tanks, barter networks, etc. Bring your CDs and DVDs to promote, too. You are welcome to network with others and solicit SUGGESTED DONATIONS at the event, but please, let’s not actually SELL anything! I don’t like to give the banksters any more business than we have to! Thanks!

If you have an interest in volunteering to help with clean up, security, etc., please call me, Sharlene, at 720.298.1524. Thank you!
