BLACK GOLD of the SUN & THE DREAM JOURNAL GoFundMe FUNDRAISER https://www.gofundme.com/f/house-of-aleijuan-art-dump-2022
Greetings! This fundraiser has a dual purpose: https://www.gofundme.com/f/house-of-aleijuan-art-dump-2022
To provide a quality sound experience($1200), curate and compensate artists ($400), rehearse & perform original music with a new band ($400) on JUNE 21, 2022 in the Make Music Day Outdoor Music Festival. (MakeMusicNY.org)
To independently publish my second book: THE DREAM JOURNAL: MERMAIDZ FR: OUTERSPACE ($1500). This “Middle Passage project” aspires to be a book of original #AFROFUTURISMO collages, fictional journal entries, photos, and artifacts.
The TOTAL GOAL is $3500.
(sound budget: $1200. artist budget: $800. book budget: $1500.)
Last summer, HOUSE of ALEijUAN & friends featured about 13 artists/bands on the sidewalk in front of Symphony Music Record Shop in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. This year we are collaborating with shops like Life Wellness Center and Botanical Life & Style to create RIGHTEOUS MUSICAL VIBES on the sidewalk in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
I am expecting the first copies of my first book, The 9 Lives of Oliver 6, within weeks. My second book project is an #AFROFUTURISMO story of the enslaved Africans lost in the Middle Passage. The Middle Passage was the route through the Trans-Atlantic slave trade in which millions of enslaved Africans were transported to the Americas on slave ships. THE DREAM JOURNAL: MERMAIDZ FR: OUTERSPACE solves the mystery of what happened to millions of Africans dumped overboard by greedy pirates, before ever reaching land.
THANK YOU in advance for your support.
