The main goal of this project is to raise awareness, to promote the idea of a Basic Income to people who have never heard of this before (and probably some of the ones who actually don’t care about such things.)series of short films (and probably a documentary) to reach the masses (i.e. mainstream), inspired by the most popular visions members of our community have submitted to us.
To make people identify with the Basic Income we need to link that theoretical idea with their own personal lifes. Not just another boring movie where economists talk for 2 hours about whatever and show hundreds of slidings charts. (Which is perfectly right - for another target group!) We need to picture a life WITH a Basic Income in a simple, entertaining way. We want to touch hearts make people dream and laugh - and realize how much they demand a Basic Income! ;)
We are convinced that thinking about that question leads most people to exactly this conclusion. Not just for ourselves, but for our neighbours who work 70 hours a week, for the homeless guy who sleeps in the abandoned factory across the street, for our best friend who had to sell her guitar, even the guy who stole our car to buy food for his family!
But HOW IS life with a Basic Income going to be?? We try to find the answer with help from the community. The simplest way to get people’s opinions, find out how they feel and what they think is to run polls and surveys. But we want more, a real community project.
The magic word is: Participation!
