Oy Gay Bloggers Unite To Create An Artist Initiative
As many of you may know, there’s a contest going on to find - and fund - the Next Big Jewish Idea (http://www.thenextbigjewishidea.com) and fellow bloggers Kalil Cohen, Kadin Henningsen and myself have entered! There are so many great ideas, so we encourage you to view them all… and while you are at it, please also take a second to click the link below and vote for our idea, ‘GenToGen’:
Voting ends March 31st. Please vote and tell 5 others to do the same!About our Idea (in a nutshell):
GenToGen is a pluralistic and dynamic Artist initiative that provides the next generation of Jewish Artists and their peers with a way to make better their world through implementing systems to build community in both virtual and actual life. In order to create a paradigm that is sustainable, cooperative, easily duplicated and able to run, support and nurture a more permanent long-term Artist Communal Living Gathering, GenToGen’s focus is on gluing old and new ideals together alongside the strategic engagement of every generation via the Arts.
Through new and enterprising social media platforms, a live-performance/open-mic series, and two signature outreach and in-reach programs, namely the Veggie Bus Program and the GenToGen Mentorship Network, respectively, GenToGen is THE premiere Hub for Artists who understand the power and reach of the online global community as well as the importance of reaching out, and being reached out to, within their local community. Whether you are a writer, painter, singer-songwriter, rapper, composer, educator, activist, you name it, GenToGen is a vehicle for those dynamic and progressive individuals who approach life through a lens of the Arts and whom passionately feel that Art can - and will -repair the World.
