Help “The Bang Bang Project” Fundraising campaign!

Help Us Debut “The Bang Bang Project” Exhibition Tour on November 20, 2015!

“The Bang Bang Project” - Enough of RACISM! Enough of POLICE BRUTALITY! Hold those who serve and protect us to their highest accountability. Paint and brushes are my weapon.  The canvas tells my story. As a Post REalist Social Justice Artist, THE BANG BANG PROJECT was born the day of Michael Brown's killer was acquitted. We want justice now. Continued abuse of power are perpetuated towards people of color every second. We need to address this issue and act now. No one should be arrested and be found dead 3 days later due to supposedly suicide on a traffic violation.  It will take all of us to change a system. This is my contribution to the dialogue of race and police brutality. Support my project. It is ours. Together we can make a difference and talk about the elephant in the room called RACISM and productively changed the system through dialogue, understanding and compassion.  If you can't contribute please share the video.

Much mad love world.

“The Bang Bang Project” introduces a multimedia production of the visual arts and live performance featuring the known international visual artist, Cesar Conde  (www.cesarcondeart.com) in collaboration with writer and accomplished Theatre Director, Mignon McPherson Stewart.  The dynamically artistic combination will result in a historic, breathtaking exhibition tour. 

  The multimedia production will seduce the audience and draw these observers into a dialogue reflecting on what we have lost, what we stand to lose and how we must use our collective voices to combat this bloody cycle.  

The Project Team’s goal is to develop ethical and socially responsible public affairs campaigns for the Bang Bang Project. The Bang Bang Project Partners serve as ambassadors building grassroots coalitions, disseminate project materials, act as a project liaisons, increase project visibility, and solicit community support and involvement.  The project Partners will provide access at the local and grassroots level to successfully tap into community constituencies networks of family, friends, neighbors, community leaders, faith-based organizations, co-workers, and local elected officials that are the backbone to successful community coalition building.  Through collaborative partnerships, our goal is increased visibility, social awareness, and to continue generating a national discussion on race-relations.

“The Bang Bang Project” will act as a catalyst for change by creating a safe arena where discussion of highly sensitive issues can occur. “The Bang Bang Project” through the brilliance of Conde’s portraits with the captivating live performance written and direct by Mignon Stewart McPherson hopes to create the right atmosphere where open discussions occur on police brutality, racial profiling, race-relations, stigmas, and wrongful deaths.  This exhibit introduces and nurtures a safe haven for public discussion and encourages a call to action to eliminate “Dream Shots” from being a societal norm.  The Bang Bang Project will challenge ever exhibition observer to ensure all of our children live free of fear and grow to fulfill their destinies which serves to enrich everyone’s lives.

Langston Hughes posed the question, "What happens to a dream deferred?"  Unfortunately, today we are increasing called upon to ask what happens when a dream is shot down, taken just as it is being formed.
