ZGAC Kickstarter Campaign

San Francisco, CA (September 18, 2017) – The Zero Gravity Arts Consortium (ZGAC) launched its Kickstarter Campaign Greetings From Earth: Art For Extraterrestrials on September 18, 2017. This arts-centered project supports the showcasing of international short films during the ZGAC STEAM SCREEN – ISDC 2018 World Premiere Movie Night, to be held during the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference ISDC® 2018, May 24-27, at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Los Angeles. Greetings From Earth will take place on Saturday, May 27, 2018, at 9:30 PM, as the premiere arts/STEM/STEAM event of the ISDC.

All artists, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and space enthusiasts are invited to create a video presentation that will be placed into a new sculptural work of art that will contain the combined efforts of ZGAC’s international film competition.  Once completed, Greetings From Earth: Art For Extraterrestrials will await our first contact with an extraterrestrial civilization, archived at a top-secret location.  The creation of this symbolic gift media to ET will commence upon reaching our Greetings From Earth: ZGAC’s Arts Capsule for Extraterrestrials Kickstarter project goal of $30,000.00.

A highly-qualified panel of judges will select twenty videos from the hundreds of entries, and award the winning artists and teams exclusive screenings during the ISDC 2018 presentation. Our goal is to encourage filmmakers to celebrate human arts and culture from the viewpoint of 2017, cognizant of the 40th Anniversary of the 1977 launch of the Voyager Mission. The central theme will be that of ISDC 2018: Space Travel: Putting People Into Space. Frank Pietronigro, award-winning space artist and “artonaut,” invites you to visit the project’s Kickstarter page to lend your support to this transformative project, which will inspire people from all walks of life to enjoy cultural and artistic experiences, alongside science and engineering, in space.

ZGAC is leading a growing movement focused on cultural and artistic expression in space, and directly assists artists in gaining access to space flight technologies in support of STEAM activities (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Music and Mathematics). ZGAC also strives to help reduce poverty and disease by presenting a live interactive webcast from outer space that will improve the quality of life on our home planet Earth.

ZGAC believes that arts and cultural expression are on a par with science and technology, and that the hybridization of these endeavors are critical to our future success as a species.
