Hip Hop For Hope

Hip Hop For Hope Childrens Cancer Project rallies communities around music as a tool to help save the lives of children battling cancer in Humboldt County.

Universal Pictorial Language

Most invented languages are written by one person with a specific intention or ideology. But you and I will forgo that to create The Universal Pictorial Language or UPL. An image-based language written from scratch. I have begun hosting tabling events where I sit down with as many people as fathomable and draw as many hieroglyphics as possible. Our collaboration will coalesce into a language understood across the region the nation and potentially the world.

Program Catagory:

Collective 74

Our concept is to create a nonprofit potentially associated with a property in Fieldbrook. Our thought is by doing this we can gather the community to create a variety of projects. Some of our ideas for these projects have been to create community gardens, permanent art structures, aquaponics and earthships on the site along with teaching the community while creating these projects. We would love to be able to create events to fund raise like bbq contest and chili cook offs. We envision bringing artist, visionaries and musicians to hold workshops for the community.
