UPDATE: WISE SERPENT MUSIC NOW RUNS VIA AGENCY WISE SERPENT DREAM
1. THE VISION
Launching officially on 11/11/2022, WISE SERPENT MUSIC is in the early process of creating entertaining + educational content for young musicians, artists & creative entrepreneurs who are going through the #ArtofRebirth (the beauty of transformation).
With depression & mental illness as prevalent as they are in Australia, suicide statistically is the #1 cause of death for our youth.
Wise Serpent Music believes we need a shift in our thinking, a shift in our patterns, a shift in our culture.
Our vision is to help our youth ‘rebirth’ through times of hardship, using creativity & enlightened entertainment as wisdom tools.
We believe we can help more youth redeem the shadow of past & use it as a blank canvas for painting a brighter future.
So, how does this ground out?
Well, in addition to our plan to create & distribute educational + entertainment content across our media channels, we have decided to open a 100% FREE Artist Development Program on the back-end that provides a FREE online group + FREE 1-on-1 support for Australian Youth via Music, Art & Wisdom.
So if you’re aged between 14-22 years old, we’ll help you out all we can & we won’t charge you for our services.
This will be a place of belonging for the outcasts, the punks, the misfits… the Australian music underground.
A place that allows students direct access to successful artists, influencers & youth role models across the globe.
A school that is just as focused on practical wisdom & thinking positively, than the creative itself.
So when students go through the program, they have more tools, support & balance to deal with life’s bigger challenges.
Looking holistically, no doubt Top Talent can & will rise to an extremely influential place of status in society.
We want to see the next wave of successful Top Talent embody a bright positive message of hope & unity, rather than abandonment, loneliness & defeat…the end of which historically has been too often, sadly, witnessed as dark suicide in the world spotlight.
The art itself, of course, may be extremely dark…and that outlet (artistic expression) is safe & encouraged… but we would love to see our artists shine as positive individuals on top of any platforms & opportunities they are given. To become real light-bringers to their followers. To help bring change in Australian youth culture for good.
That is our vision.
Not just to be able to fast track an artist’s career & development…without charge… but to give them a strong foundation, inside-out confidence, a positive outlook, and a deeper purpose of living altogether.
Launching officially on 11/11/2022, WISE SERPENT MUSIC is in the pre-launch phase & needs financial support to successfully launch, operate, and sustainably grow. To partner as a business sponsor with the vision, please get in touch here.
