“Talent where you least expected it, Beauty where you forgot to look…”
Inspire, 2013 is the pilot initiative to show the world what happens when artistic talent meets resources, mentorships, community support and opportunities, designed to provide a hand up to artists, in a way that inspires whole communities. Showcasing the importance of collaboration and how we all are inspired by everything we see, hear, and experience as whole.
“Inspire is an experiment to see what would happen if we gave Inspiration its own platform”. -Fritzo founder of BIBT/INSPIRE
With the support of the Bring It Back Tour, Inspire is well positioned to provide access and services that will motivate artists nationwide to share their skills while learning new ones. As part of the Bring It Back national tour, Inspire will:
* Bring video teams into communities visited by Inspire to shoot top quality HD videos of the local artists at work. Advance notice of the Inspire team’s arrival to town will enable artists to prepare, create buzz and bring some of the very best to the event weekend.
* During the event weekend, Inspire will host a variety of events and educational seminars to help all kinds of artists understand the business, meet other artists and connect with producers, directors, sponsors and many others that can help an artists career.
* Much like music reality shows, we will locate and give creative platforms to a wide spectrum of undiscovered and under priveleged talent, and provide all artists involved with an opportunity to be seen on a centralized hub online. Each week new artists will be showcased on the Bringitbacktour/Inspire.com website, and made available to everyone. Artists of all kinds will be interviewed to have their work showcased and presented in a professional manner. This process will highlight the skill that it takes to deliver the fruits of dedicated labor, as well as the outcome of how it affects everyone involved in the process, from beginning to end.
* We will invite guest directors and editors to craft the final video footage and documentary pieces acquired during the tour, enabling filmmakers to hone their craft while helping artists share their passion.
We will work closely with local non-profits to provide them with an event where their constituents can participate, build community relations and dramatically increase visibility. The more organizations come to understand each other’s missions and resources, the stronger the community and larger their reach becomes in increasing the success of all. Cooperative economics are key components to the BIBT/Inspire community vision. At At the end of the tour, with the many collaborations of creative works, we will have connected with thousands of performers from around the country, produced dozens of music videos, interviewed hundreds of artists, producers, and supporters in the community to facilitate the process of creative collaboration for the future. Young artists will recognize that they can do their passion while supporting and being supported by their community. Music videos have a lasting impact on consumers, artist and fans alike. They will meet others in the business and have the chance to share what they know with a growing network of people seeking to implement new ideas.
BIBT/Inspire will reach out to colleges, clubs, afterschool programs, and non profits, working close with local as well as national artists and creative entrepreneurs, educators and guest speakers. We will take the Inspire bus to all locations, getting acquainted with the community, initializing the beginning of a year long process to return to college campuses and empower sustainability by having a two day show at every stop. First day is a hands-on collaboration of workshops and panels with national guest speakers providing successful business models, curated by local staff & students of middle school, high school, and college clubs alike. The purpose of the workshop is to promote working together to better understand the outcome of large collaborative efforts both locally and nationally.
Second day is a headliner show that generates ticket sales in return for day 1 workshops that teach about money streams, grants and funding through non profits and school event budgets. This will be discounted, in some cases free, for the level of involvement from day #1 workshops and panels, encouraging the next generation to value collaborative efforts towards a bigger goal the community plays in creating together. The 2nd day event will consist of multiple stages including a local stage that gets donations and 50% of ticket sales from a viral standpoint. The more they put in, the more the program upgrades their communities. Teaching the local community to continue the events with new knowledge and a successful business model to re- create the events experience and benefiting from the revenue stream of ticket sales and sponsorships
