Hey people I wanted to let you know that the PR firm of Stok It Now has taken up a new mission and I wanted to tell you all about it. For those of you who came to Fiddler's Hearth last Thursday got a chance to sit down andd speak with Dave Dart of Dart Music International about what he does with the organization. I hope that you will take the time to take a look at the mission and possibly get involved. If you have any questions about the foudation, please feel free to email me at [address removed] or [address removed]. For Immediate Release:
Dart Music International (DMI) a 501(c) (3) based in Austin, Texas proudly announces their alliance with the PR firm of Stock It Now (www.ATXstockitnow.com) to handle media and relations as of January 1, 2009. With SXSW coming up we feel that this is the perfect opportunity to showcase bands and performers across the world and introduce Austin to things that we need to dream about. What we have planned for 2009 will do just that. Leading the team is Declan O'Reilly and in a recent statement indicated "that this is exactly what Austin, the state of Texas and the surrounding region need to BRIDGE THE CULTURAL DIVIDE."
The primary mission of DMI is to promote international awareness and cross-cultural understanding through music. Our organization working in concert with local promoters, grant agencies, fundraisers and lovers of the arts minimizes the costs and time associated with coming to our area for up-and-coming international bands and helps guide these performers through the process of getting their music to our region. Visas, transportation, logistics, and other expenses can cost tens of thousands of dollars without people to guide them through the process. Our efforts transform an expensive vacation into an investment in their career for these bands while striking down stereotypes and making their culture a little less foreign for people here. Executive Director Dave Dart was recently featured in Austin American Statesman as someone presenting an innovative approach to the music scene.
