Sorry for the late notice, but there is still time for folks to make a
short (30 second) YouTube video message for this online event encouraging
using art and music to launch a global conversation about making the world
a better place.  Co-sponsored by aBigProject and UN Arts for Peace and a
lot of other folks who work to "Imagine Whirled Peas".

Help Life Change



If the world as it currently exists were to radically shift tomorrow, and
we had an opportunity to recreate the world…

    What would you want to keep from this world?
    What would you want to leave behind?
    What could people do differently now to help us get to that world?
    What is one thing that you would be willing to do differently to help
get us to that world?

 Hi Chris --

Thanks for your patience as we’ve tried to put the final pieces into
place!  The good news is our schedule looks amazing, we are filled to the
rim with celebrity messages, lots of fab music videos and PSA’s, and we
have press releases ready to go and your art work looks beautiful!
 Unfortunately, there was an ugly glitch in the technology platform that we
were hoping to use. So we are moving to *PLAN B! **


In order to have your message developed for the broadcast, simply use your
mobile phone’s video  camera (if you have one) or a digital camera and
record your segment. Then upload it onto youtube and send the link to
multostars at gmail.com and please cc me at dbarlin at abigproject.org.

If you have any issues, email us and we’ll work with you until we ensure
your message goes live!


If you are an artist or a message maker and want media for your message, click
here <http://press_release_template> to download a press release template.
All you need to do is write in a few sentences (in yellow) to the document
and send out to the top five local newspapers or bloggers in your area.  If
you call them and tell them what you are doing, they are more likely to
pick up the story!
