Virtual Charity Festivals 2020
Collaborations With IMPACT Festival
The Art Party is collaborating with IMPACT Festival for joint charity festivals July 16 to 20 and September 5 weekend. These events are live stream to 3D Virtual World with over 10 million active users and Zoom, a video and web conferencing platform. The Art Party has grown an audience of +10,000 social media contacts with +1000 Mailchimp contacts for workshops and events.
The United Nations has declared September 5 yearly as International Day of Charity. As a non-profit in Canada, The Art Party is planning to participate and collaborate with IMPACT Festival for online events with DJs and live paintings, along with break out rooms for live workshops using Zoom. https://www.un.org/en/events/charityday/
For IMPACT Festivals in 2020, The Art Party is providing Google Ad Grants for promotions in 2020. The Art Party is also providing support for Zoom workshops with Zoom moderators during the virtual festivals and also in-between to promote the workshop trainers.
There are multiple causes for IMPACT Festivals in 2020, including the Artist Relief Impact Fund to support artists who perform at Impact Festival and its associated streams. 100% of this fund will be given to participating artists, divided fairly by the fraction of viewers of each artist’s stream. IMPACT Festival is also supplementing through grand stand sponsorship. ❤️
IMPACT Festival in 2019 had over 1,000 live attendees and raised over $40,000 for charities. For 2020, IMPACT Festival will be virtual with the goal of over 100,000 and up to 1 million virtual attendees on Twitch.TV and up to 1,000 participants on Zoom to raise online cash donations. http://www.impactfestival.ca/
Why Join A Virtual Festival?
Burning Man will be virtual this year and take place in the multiverse because of the ongoing threat of COVID-19. It usually brings in crowds of over 80,000 to Black Rock, Nevada, but in 2020 it will take place online. It’s not just Burning Man, but all summer festivals are banned in 2020; all governments in Canada and the USA have placed a ban on all large gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These summer festivals typically feature live music, art, alternative workshops, food vendors and more. https://burningman.org
There is a need for community building and social engagement, even with social distancing laws. The virtual charity festivals will take place entirely online. Similar to live in-person workshops at festivals, virtual workshops at a virtual festival could have break-out rooms with art-making, vegan / veg cooking demos, yoga, and skillshare workshops.
The Art Party is focused on vegan / veg cooking demos for the Zoom workshops as this is a good fit with the IMPACT Festival audience who is looking to reduce their carbon footprint with a more plant-based diet. There is also a surge in online vegan / veg cooking classes since COVID-19 outbreak, with millions of cooking related searches on Google. The current and other previous pandemics are zoonotic (disease transmission from animals to humans). We will require at least 2 volunteer moderators to help up to 1,000 participants during Zoom breakout sessions to view and send video, screen share, annotate and security. https://zoom.us
