WE FUND COMMUNITY RESOURCES WITH OUR CREATIVE TALENTS.
If my true passion lies in producing creative work, then it's only natural to want my creations to have the most profound impact possible. This sentiment has been a guiding principle in shaping our creative Systems of Sustainable Funding and serves as a driving force behind our "Give What You're Good At" initiative.
We firmly believe that funding solutions for our communities should be a task undertaken by the communities themselves. Furthermore, we envision these methods of community funding seamlessly integrated into our daily lives. Music, art, fashion, film, and entertainment are integral parts of the daily experience for many of us, whether as creators within these realms, consumers, or a combination of both.
Through Unite Initiative Corp. programs, we offer creators and our Millennial and Gen-Z peers the opportunity to give back in meaningful ways. This can be achieved by contributing their creative work, and/or by actively engaging with the work produced. By participating in these initiatives, individuals play a pivotal role in generating sustained funding for resources that foster equity and progress within our 13 impact communities across the globe.
THE COMMUNITIES WE IMPACT
Through the revenue derived from music streams, digital content views, event attendance, apparel purchases and more, we develop creative programs that focus our community impact, on issues that include: mental health, food cultivation, mentorship, community beautification, arts in education, homelessness, financial literacy, and environmental sustainability.
AN ECO-SYSTEM OF COMMUNITY FUNDING
Our Unite Initiative divisions work with our network of creators to produce creative work that is then distributed through Unite Initiative Corp. owned and partner platforms. The revenue generated through Unite Initiative Publishing, Media, Events and our Unite Store, is dispersed between our global, national, regional, and local Unite Initiative program implementation partners. The more our music is streamed, merchandise purchased, and events are attended - the more revenue we generate for funding programs within our Unite Initiative Impact Communities.
MIND OF THE CITY DOCU-SERIES
The world is changing at a rapid pace, new technologies are emerging, a new generation is beginning to lead the way forward, and more opportunities are available to us now, than ever before. However, our communities continue to face the same problems that have been called out for decades - and the tools that have been designed to bring us together, find a generation growing lonelier, more frustrated, and less sure of what the future holds for them.
Recognizing the power that music and its creators have on the rising generations, as well as the power it has to impact our mood and mental health, in “Mind Of The City” we see how the two come together to illustrate our lives, provide a key to sustainable community funding, and inspire a creative generation to place the power to create change, in their own hands.
The filming of “Mind Of The City” will be led by Artemus Jenkins, an Atlanta-based filmmaker and photographer who creates compelling stories by documenting contemporary art and lifestyle.
The format for "Mind Of The City" will be similar to that of "Heart Of The City" a documentary created by Artemus, and an homage to shows like Video Music Box and Yo MTV Raps, which promote the discovery of new artists and their culture through music & journalism.
UNITE THE ALBUM: A JOURNEY TO PEACE
The album is the story of a person recounting the story of their life - as if they were in therapy analyzing pivotal moments and how they made them feel.
All of the vocalists on the album are different characters that represent the various perspectives/feelings from the mind of the person sharing their life-story.
Each song on the album will represent a different stage on the journey of life and the emotional and mental states we all go through on that journey. The album will be rooted in hip-hop & R&B, but will reflect the sounds and cultures of the Unite The Album Impact Cities.
