Help Save 'The Illuminator,' Occupy's Brightest Voice

by Yasha Wallin

September 25, 2012

The founders say The Illuminator is more than just a physical presence. The people behind it—the artists, activists, librarians, and VJ's who make up The Illuminator Affinity Group—literally shine a light on the urgent issues they believe in.

To keep their vision alive, a Kickstarter campaign, which ends in just three days, aims to raise $22,000. The hope is that crowdfunding will ensure their process stays democratic, and earn enough for "The Illuminator 2.0," a fleet of bike-powered units, projectors, and the other equipment needed to take the message public. Read explains, "What we do depends on how much money we raise. At the level we are shooting for, bikes are the best option, but if we go ballistic (and the Kickstarter is going well) we could get another van."

Let's help them go ballistic. Fund the project here.
