REAWAKENING THE MAMMOTH: A 4 1/2 minute story of the MAMMOTH Art Community
The MAMMOTHON 2020 - LIVE TRANSMISSION - Variety Show: Episode 1
A 5-hour video stream telethon fundraiser for the MAMMOTH, a vital, but shut down Community/ Art Center in Louisville, Kentucky. We need your help to pull the beast out of the mud so we can GET THE REAL SHOW ON THE ROAD. We have important work to do… a Future to build for.
So, why are these videos here? In light of everybody’s social-distancing and isolation at home it seemed like a really good way to entertain the people and keep spirits up! A CREATIVE TRANSMISSION: This variety show from many secret undisclosed locations has so much live expression, and so many glimpses into the creative worlds of some outrageously awesome Louisville peoples… and some faithful friends from afar.
Just watch… There will be music, poetry, crazy rants, micro explorations into odd Space, skits, video, performance art, short films and much more... This is our Pilot show, so there's more to come…
~If you have a few extra dollars please help us bring this sacred Creative Space BACK TO LIFE~
If things are tight, we understand, indeed. Enjoy whatever you can here. Please keep us in mind later down the road when this are more stable.
And LASTLY, before we get on with it… A huge, MAMMOTH THANK YOU is due to the dozens of folks who have thrown a little or a lot of cash into the GoFundMe pot to save this amazing building from being lost to the World. Unfortunately Greedy people like the tear beautiful old things apart. So thank you for you for supporting our cause. Keep fighting the good fight with us. Infinite Love to You.
