We are pleased to announce the birth of our new non profit project – Be Interactive! This will combine charity initiatives, community-enrichment programs, and all sorts of creative campaigns designed to promote engagement, inspire activism, and encourage people to get involved with their communities and give back to the people around them. We will of course continue to donate one dollar per ticket from each and every Bassnectar event, but we are now launching this entirely independent arm of the team: dedicated and devoted to the service of others 🙂
Today we are announcing the first fundraiser event for Be Interactive in San Francisco on Saturday, September 29th.
Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, Dead Prez, Ninth Child, Zion i, Ashel SeaSunz, and Xiutezcatl Martinez are all gathering to throw down in support of this consciousness-raising cause: with a special focus on the upcoming elections and how to promote voter fairness and justice. 100% of proceeds go to charity, and we are aiming to raise $100,000 for Be Interactive campaigns & initiatives.
It’s been years since we hosted a proper throwdown in the hometown, so come celebrate with us, and our friends:
Presale tickets are SOLD OUT
Public tickets go on sale Friday, June 15.
Get Involved – Be Interactive Now!
We are designing both virtual and analog ways for you to be involved. Start by following our new avatars @Be__Interactive on Twitter and facebook.com/BeInteractive to learn more about the concept. Although we have many diverse approaches to encouraging engagement, one of the most direct ways to get involved is with our Creative Project Grants:
We will collect submissions from community members about various creative campaigns they would like to launch, almost like a kick starter dedicated to acts of giving & charity. It will be a contest of sorts, in that the finalist who is selected will be granted financial support to carry out their campaign, and interactive support & participation from our organization. While these contests will launch later in the year, you can get involved now to learn more and get a head start dreaming up your ideas.
Here are some immediate steps you can take to Be Interactive:
