Let in New Knowledge
We are LINK. We stand for Letting In New Knowledge.
Who are we? A coalition of artists and activists dedicated to showing the world that Art and Creativity are invaluable to freedom and the human experience.
A small minority of humans choose to influence the world with terror and fear.
LINK is a collaboration of those who choose to influence the world with their artistic output. These powerful forces have shaped humankind in myriad and powerful ways throughout history.
LINK is sacred skeleton key to this partially rusted lock, and we are putting it back in! For we acknowledge that the power of creativity is a far more valuable tool and natural state to human existence than the overemphasized attributes of violence and fear.
And with this knowledge, WE SHALL ACT! For LINK is dedicated to reweaving these energetic states back into people's everyday lives!
LINK is EVERYWHERE. LOOK FOR US! Where will you find us? Follow the trails we leave. Paths of music, poetry, sculpture, painting... our methods are without number! They are left to remind you that this amazing planet ultimately belongs to those who celebrate and nurture its existence!
Your part in this? First, to put on fresh eyes! Look for these gifts we leave everywhere you are! In so doing, we urge you to LEAVE BEHIND any FEAR of another human harming you and, instead, acknowledge there are far more of your fellow planet dwellers offering respect, love and support. Something we are all entitled to by birth! Whether through organized events, or individual anonymous acts, the art we leave is awaiting humanity everywhere!
Another major aspect of our beliefs: We are ALL born with creative abilities! It is integral to life on Earth! LINK urges and invites you to PARTICIPATE with us!
How? That is for you to know and all of us to see! Maybe you leave a painting in a parking lot, or maybe your theatre decides to host a weekend of thought-provoking performance. Maybe you decide to break into dance on a street corner sometime! LINK acknowledges that by sharing this human creative impulse any way we can, we are reclaiming our world from others who seek to disrupt it!
The weekend of December 11-13 will mark LINK's inaugural events here in Denver. To honor our friends in Paris, Brazil, Russia, Syria and countless other places for their recent experiences in terrorist trauma. Over these 3 days, events will take place in the Denver area. All revolving around community, art, humanity, creativity and the empowerment these things offer. For example, Dan Landes will be raising a CHAIN LINK installation piece outside City, O' City on 13th Avenue and Sherman St
