Be Interactive - Nashville - 2019

Be Interactive
July 13th, 2019
Municipal Auditorium
Nashville, TN

VIVA ENTHUSIASM!

With both nights of Bass Center selling out faster than you can say “whatthefuckthesefolksreallylovebass” we decided to huck together a night of music in celebration of our non profit project “Be Interactive” – dedicated to promoting engagement and community activism to raise awareness about important issues and hopefully rally each other to make a difference (:

As you prepare thyselves to devour the details of this upcoming throwdown, we’d like to share some quick highlights from Be Interactive’s first 7 months of existence:

> Distributed $35,000 in grant money to projects completed by Ambassadors, members of the Bassnectar Community, and beyond
> Collected 2500 meals for a local food bank and 3000 items of winter clothing for those in need during our NYE360 event to close out 2018
> Organized a cleanup that picked up 560 lbs of trash from a beach in a world heritage site, collected 94 backpacks and hundreds of school supplies, raised $18,000 for music education, and offset the carbon emissions from all flights for our first overseas special event in Mexico: Deja Voom
> Fostered partnerships with organizations like HeadCount, To Write Love On Her Arms, Conscious Alliance, and many more to help activate the community at shows and online.
> Click here to check out more of the efforts and accomplishments from Be Interactive!

In the fall of 2018, we launched the nonprofit into life through a special one-night event in San Francisco accompanied by our friends, artists, and activists alike! This July we’re going to do it again, but taking it up a notch in a place we are long overdue to return: NASHVILLE!

Joining us for our night of giving:
Truth • Mr. Carmack • LSDREAM • Rhaksha

Tickets for this event are SOLD OUT! Thank you!!

This is only the beginning… prepare to throw down on even more charitable endeavors and community outreach!

Even more ways to get involved and Be Interactive!

A quick reminder to follow: @BeInteractiveHQ on Twitter, @BeInteractiveHQ Instagram, facebook.com/BeInteractiveHQ, and visit the website beinteractivehq.orgto learn more about the nonprofit and its mission.

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 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(s) 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.

 

Recent or upcoming projects + initiatives:

1. Be Interactive is set to announce the winner of the Environment grant soon, and a new grant theme for Summer 2019!

At Freestyle Sessions, join us Saturday June 8th for our biggest volunteering day ever: The Born Botanical Permaculture Action Day, in support of the ongoing environment theme! They are fundraising now for additional resources, and you can purchase an exclusive Bassnectar Merch T-shirt to be a part of the effort!

CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO THE FUNDRAISER

 

2. One of our Ambassadors, Stephanie, received $14,000 to bring a sensory room “Haven” and mindfulness instruction for elementary school students in a PA neighborhood hard-hit by the opioid crisis. Check it out:

 

3. David G., a volunteer for Bass Network and The Trevor Project, along with community members will distribute $5000 worth of care packages and love to trans folks in need in Los Angeles at 1st anniversary celebration for LA’s first Transgender Wellness Center.

CLICK HERE FOR EVENT INFO + RSVP

 

4. Florence Crittenton Services was selcted to expand and enhance their Art Therapy for Teen Moms program by purchasing supplies and professionally displaying the work of teen mothers in their program in Denver.

5. Look out for Be Interactive projects at Bassnectar special events & select festivals!

We will be tabling at info booths and engagement centers to spread information, make friends, build community, and strengthen the bonds between the Ambassadors, Bass Network, Love Here, and all our various charity partners. From hosting art gallery auctions and raffles, to running food & clothing drives, to lending a hand at community gardens: there is mucho interaction to be had at each event.

If you’re heading to Freestyle Sessions, Nashville, or any of our events this year, check in with Be Interactive online and see what projects we will be activating on-the-ground. (You can also check the Community section of the Bassnectar App.) The more of you that get involved, the better our projects will represent our community and its values.

This will be the 3rd year in a row of Bass Center in Hampton, and we’re looking to once again make this an all day affair by setting up a massive amount of activations and activities for you in The Lots during Saturday and Sunday afternoon! But a few questions before we dig in…
