We Empower People To Create Their Reality
Artist and Community Development Since 2012
Camp Now recruits, hires, promotes, and supports a new generation of artist activists committed to creating a peaceful world Now. Over the last five years, our company has produced a music and theater summer camp in 2012, a four-year youth culture think tank and content development container from 2014 - 2018, and, from 2015 - 2018, we tested four pop up markets in Marlboro, NY, Great Barrington, MA, New Lebanon, NY and Catskill, NY.
2019: Campaigns For A Creative Economy Supported By Fiscal and Social Responsibility
2019 Campaigns: In January and February of 2019, we did pre-production work on our next Campaign, and by March, we launched part one of a two-part campaign that focuses on empowering good folks working with questions of Freedom and Justice across Greene County.
Our Last Campaign: Pause and Rethink: Question The Oversized Jail Build
Freedom and Criminal Justice in Our Changing Times, Part One (A Campaign For An Empowered Greene County and Surrounding Regions, NY) March - June 2019. Over three months we worked with anti-jail activists from Greene County, to produce a full time creative campaign about fiscal responsibility and criminal justice in Greene County, re: a certain, arguably oversized, jail build, in Coxsackie, NY.
Our Current Campaign: “Halt and Rethink: Save The Old Jail”
Halt and Rethink Overspending In Greene County, Freedom and Criminal Justice in Our Changing Times, Part Two (A Campaign For An Empowered Greene County, Surrounding Regions and the Nation) June 2019 - October 2019.
We are now working with - bi-partisan - tax payer’s revolution activists from Greene County, to produce a full time creative campaign about fiscal responsibility and building bridges across the bipartisan divide.
Save The Old Jail: Halt and Rethink Overspending In Greene County proposes that the old Greene County Jail in Catskill, NY, be saved from demolition. We are currently gathering a group of investors who are proposing to renovate the jail, and turn it into a historic, community empowerment, resource that brings economic development to the whole county. For example but not limited to: A Boutique Destination Location Hotel and Freedom and Criminal Justice Museum (Educating On Criminal Justice, with a research center, vocational training school, including programs and services from the Catholic Workers Movement, and others).
Halt and Rethink: Save The Old Jail includes: a prototype testing of the first Camp Now Kiosk at HiLo Cafe on Main Street in Catskill, an adventure trail and performance series that crosses Greene County, a theatrical destination location, a serial graphic novel/comic book, a retrospective art show, the release of a fantasy book for young adults, musical compilation (digital and CD), and the testing of our groundbreaking social justice Coffee Roasting Co./business model.
In addition to funding our own Campaigns, Camp Now Co. also raises resources for underdog folks who are doing empowering work. Ie: Indivuals, community centers, artists, students, and educational/vocational programming of all kinds. - G.E. Fox and The Camp Now Crew
