---------------------------------------------------------------------

I am Clifford Brooks, founder of the Southern Collective Experience. I wrote a book a few years back called, The Draw of Broken Eyes & Whirling Metaphysics. Since the book became a reality for me through Gosslee Books, I've wanted to create more, do more, and give back more to art than I was fortunate enough to gain. My dream of a "pay it forward" approach steadily found drive over ten years of building a solid foundation, finding structural flaws, and then mending the weak spots to fortify the whole. It would take more space than I am given here to express how blessed I continuously feel throughout this journey.

Now more than ever, my team, the Southern Collective Experience, stares at the threshold of a future that requires a reserve of income we currently do not possess. I stand before you with a promise that with your support and donation, via our GoFundMe page, my team will build upon the pillars of proper business practices to forge our passion, along with yours, to do more to see creative expression flourish. Licensing, accountants, legal staff, and continued creative talent development specify a few areas that would benefit tremendously from financial support. Thus far, without outside contributions, the SCE has created a website, www.southerncollectiveexperience.com , where you can view the many facets of the art scene in which we have already made positive strides.

The Blue Mountain Review, Dante’s Old South, a merchandising line, and membership roster are all available to review so one can fully appreciate the current efforts given to this calling. Again, I humbly ask for your support and donation to our shared interest via our GoFundMe account so that we are able to continue the good work we can all literally watch grow with each stride forward. We will add a page/link to our current website that will provide updates for those who wish to watch how their support forges a path of continued success and passion for a common interest - the arts.
