Future builders is a group of teens with a mission: to save the world. Every few months, on a chilly night when the city lights blaze against the sky and the bay twinkles with their reflection, we don our spandex superhero suits, throw our capes over our shoulders, and soar to a local venue to rock out with some of the spiffiest young bands around. Yes, it''s a tough job, but someone''s gotta do it.
No, but seriously. This is Future Builders:
We regularly hold benefit concerts and other fundraisers for environmental and humanitarian organizations worldwide. Frankly, we don''t expect to be able to change the whole planet, but we know for sure that we can change ourselves, and our friends. By bringing the Bay Area''s young community together through local music while raising awareness and funds for important issues, we hope to spark small shifts in consciousness that will make a huge difference later. Because right here is where it all begins.
Where we began:
The founding group was inspired by a summer at Wavy Gravy''s Camp Winnarainbow. On the night before returning home, the eldest campers headed out into the golden fields of Laytonville to walk a labyrinth together. As the sand crunched beneath their feet and the velvet sky enveloped them in vast potential, they were urged to contemplate how they would bring Camp''s joy and inspiration out into the rest of the world.
Future Builders was the beginning of an answer to this summons. Camp had taught us that we would never help anyone unless it made a difference to us, too. Combining compassion with a passion for music, Future Builders strives to connect people, minds, and ears in our global community.
