I can see the true party vibe lives at this site, but as all this shit normally comes back to.. how to spread PLUR in everyday lives? We can see that these events have created a sense of community that simply isnt present any where else. Why is this? it cannot be defined as just drugs or music coz ive bin to raves with shit tunes or no drugs and they’ve still bin amazing. we need to get over our ego’s and produce real community events that include wider society, to educate them what we’ve found. I challenge the free party crews to do a float at their local festivals, set up workshops in the youth clubs. take that shit over. if you dont use the rigs real name, then where is the risk? Yes it’s hard but if were gonna change the world, it has to be.
My dream is to aquire a massive site. the building will combine free party spaces with workshops on dj, mc, graf, dancing and practical crafts, and in order to enter the building you must walk through interactive exhibitions on ecological and social issues. obviously a bar is essential and a skate park would top it off. this may sound naive and unrealistic, but the create centre in bristol alredy owns the building and has the ecology exhibitions. i’ve spoken to people who work there, and they seem open to my suggestions, so thats a start. the money (1.5mill) could be realistically raised in a year through an intensive sponsorship, fundraising and awarenes campaign and we all know there are nuf people well up for lending their . ive been checking the net and there is loads of cash to be had by the crew witha sick idea that can convey it effectively. Tony Blair is screwing the freeparty scene, but he knows that there is a massive untapped creative culture that could be adding to the gnp, and help make tone look good. the arts council alone has 3 billion quid to giver away by april 2005. mad fundz.
the french have legal raves, the spanish, it is part of our celtic heritage, an ancient tradition we have a right to.there are nuff hedz wiilin to put the skillz and efforts in. I need to finish my art degree this year and continue makin contacts, and gaining “events management” as the squares call it, but this time next year, this project is gettin launched.
if anyone has anything to offer, be it skillz, support,suggestions or money, the world will thank you, and so will i.
LOVE GOES OUT TO ALL THE FREE PARTY PEOPLE…
