Help Us Turn Up The Youth Vote #RockEnrol
Crowdfunding Announcement
#RockEnrol Pledgeme Crowdfunding Page
#RockEnrol is a non-partisan campaign that uses popular culture, technology, music & events to build & activate political power for young people in Aotearoa NZ.
The goals of #RockEnrol are simple:
1. Get people enrolled (hype)
2. Get people informed (content)
3. Get people out to vote (action)
Building a movement
We are running a 60-day series of events & parties all around the country where the only way to get a ticket is you have to enrol & pledge to vote (for any political party) in the 2014 General Election. Inspired by Rock The Vote, NZ Music Month & Oxfam’s Fairtrade Fortnight – people can organise their own #RockEnrol Party at home or in their community, or they can attend a party that we organise at a club or a venue. Hosts will be able to download or get sent out a Host Pack and the best hosts go in the draw to win cool prizes (like festival tickets, music vouchers & gym memberships).
What do we need money for?
Parties & events need money to run. You can help us keep these events free by pledging today. Our goal is to raise $10k in 3 weeks (but we set the target at $5k, so we can at least get that). The money will be used to help pay the creative people behind the #RockEnrol parties all around the country (because too many artists & creative people work for free & they shouldn't have to).
Who is playing?
Third3ye, Homebrew, Optimus Gryme, Chronophonium, Tyra Hammond, The Side Steps Quintet, Salmonella Dub, Olie Bassweight & more.
Who are we?
RockEnrol is a collaboration between Our Place Events & Generation Zero (among others). Our Place Events connects the crowd to the cause using the cultural mediums that people already know & love. Generation Zero is a youth-led organisation that works to inspire action in a generation to combat climate change.
