Bring the Before I Die wall to the Bay Area
Organized by: Kriti Gupta
EVENT DATE Apr 25, 2014
I want to introduce the idea of the Before I Die wall to you. If this name sounds unfamiliar, I highly recommend watching the TED talk clip to your left. It's a short, excellent introduction to the wall, and well worth the watch.
Over the last year, you may have heard of the "Before I Die" wall popping up worldwide in Brazil, New Orleans, Germany, and more. My immediate thought was -- why not Fremont? Community art is uncommon nowadays, especially when it serves the dual purpose of bringing diverse communities together. I invite you to join me in changing that.
By helping, you would be contributing to bring the Before I Die wall to Fremont and the larger Bay Area, where community members can share their personal aspirations in an anonymous way. It is my hope to establish a permanent space that revitalizes and inspires those who cross paths with it.
Over the past three months, I have been collaborating with Fremont City Council and the Chamber of Commerce to bring this wall to life, and I'm happy to announce that the proposal is moving full steam ahead! But, as always, your contributions will help us take it there much more quickly. Any small donation, even $1, will add up quickly and will go toward materials for the wall's physical construction.
If you made it to the end of this pitch, THANK YOU for your time and support -- whether monetary or simply a comment down below, I appreciate it. :)
