4.) The Tipping Point Letter, Please Support Us!
Dear XLterrestrial friends, collaborators and visitors,
THESE TIMES are precarious and incredible !
Our XLterrestrial laboratory for investigating Arts + Praxis as tools to transform ourselves and our society began around 2005. And while it might seem a bit absurd with all the problems the planet faces today, we have never been so optimistic as NOW!
WE are witnessing a TIPPING POINT !
Not the ones so much talked about – the economic crises and the environmental collapse – but rather the unprecedented opportunity for WE THE PEOPLE to suddenly awake on a mass scale to our predicament, arise to the challenge, and decide that we will act together to create a more intelligent GLOBAL COMMUNITY.
We are working on a variety of projects to illuminate these paths + perspectives, because, as the saying goes, THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN !
This is not to say that things are not dangerous, THEY ARE !
A lot of heavy, oppressive, and obsolete power structures are about to FALL.
And our modern habitat, currently so detached from the natural world and its living intelligence, is very likely to undergo a radical and rapid change.
But when a critical mass of caring citizens around the world are brave, vigilant, empathic and collaborative, the dead systems that come crashing down can make way for a new society, unfettered by the violent, oppressive and unsustainable games of the glass tower occupiers.
Now is also a critical moment for our own projects, and the XLterrestrials could really use YOUR SUPPORT! We are fundraising, in order to create new educational productions and resources for navigating the challenges ahead.
Please consider making a donation to support our work.
ANY AMOUNT HELPS!

AND If you’re in Berlin in November (2011), a special invitation to see our latest work :
We are collaborating with the Globale Documentary Film Festival – Nov. 3-9 and will be premiering a new “CiTiZEN KiNO” and a seminar on Media Analysis. Projects wherein we envision a new direction in media literacy or what we like to call Media Self-Defense. A TACTICAL COMMUNITY CINEMA where citizens participate in imagining how best to employ the highest arts ( and net tools ) in our present jump ACROSS the dark abyss, and into a more inhabitable + funnier world !
With deep respex!
