Benefit Show for Backbone Campaign March 30th at Broadway Performance Hall

Moisture Festival is dedicated to giving back to the generous community we are a part of in Seattle. Each year, we choose several shows in which a portion of ticket sales are donated directly to a community 501(c)3 organization.

Sunday, March 30th, join us at 3:00pm at the beautiful Broadway Performance Hall for a fantastic variete show to benefit Backbone Campaign. Enjoy your favorite Moisture Festival performers knowing that your tickets benefit this community organization whose mission is to provide creative strategies, artful activism trainings, and creative action support to progressive activists, organizers and organizations around the US and beyond in order to invigorate and nurture a people-power, community-based, and internationally-networked nonviolent social movement for human rights, thriving communities, and ecological wellbeing.

"Proceeds from the Moisture Festival will support Backbone Campaign's Artful Activism that invigorates and amplifies citizen engagement to build a future we are proud to hand our children. Proceeds will fund scholarships to activists and community organizers from communities most deeply impacted by environmental and economic injustice to attend our week-long intensive Localize This! Artful Action Camp.  This year will our 6th Annual Vashon Island camp and this year we are adding a Great Lakes Basin Localize This! in partnership with the Circle Pines Center in Michigan.  Alumni from these and other workshops become part of a growing network of Backbone Action Brigades manifesting beautiful and inspiring spectacle actions that garner mainstream media attention for vital issues like Housing As a Human Right, Stopping the School to Prison
Pipeline, Migrant Rights, and protecting the Salish Sea and Cascadia from becoming a Fossil Fuel Corridor to Asia, and Revitalizing our Democracy.  The Seattle Action Brigade holds monthly community art builds that invite community engagement and collaboration among festival artists, community animators and organizers to create beautiful imagery inspired by our shared values and aspirations for a beautiful and thriving future."

This show's artists include: A Unicycle Built For Two, Al Simmons, Duo Volta, Fremont Philharmonic Orchestra, Hilary Chaplain, Hilby, Ron W. Bailey, Sourdough Slim, Swami YoMahmi
