Support Local & Sustainable Free Range Performing Artists Organically!

This petition had 33 supporters

I propose that we stand together and demand that the City of Las Vegas Institutionalize the career path of performing artists in the Live Entertainment Capital of the World, the Mayor shall formalize as essential to industry the steps from the street corner through the many venue tiers and to the world stage if we are to claim such titles as ...of the World. I have an idea I insist will create jobs if allowed to, it will benefit merchants and distributors and craftspeople and it will reveal a new level of audience engagement, something only hinted at previously. I saw a vision of it and have a plan where to go and how to get there from here. I can do nothing alone, not when it's for all of us and will take most of us to put in motion once we're in agreement what it is we're trying to do and how.

It begins with a service that can create a ready sustainable pool of local talent but nowhere to put them because of our inherited top-down business model. The live performing artist is the engine of the local economy in many directions and power regarding who is allowed access to public stages/audiences/prospective patrons should reside there and not at venues. It ends with an audience who makes it part of their day to participate.


A Service of Career Consultation Targeting Performing Artists & Designers
​Facilitate Creating Future Career Opportunities By Utilizing Self Marketing To Extend Career Viability

BiG ToP Promotions is an aspiring Las Vegas-centric business dedicated to identifying and serving the long term needs of the performing arts community of Clark County in a unique and perhaps revolutionary way starting with iPortfolio™, a service I've devised with a product I can deliver based on an artists presentable body of work.

I have a model for an inter-dependent coalition of local venues and businesses working collectively to further the motto Support Local & Sustainable Everything Possible while providing an unparalleled audience experience. My proposal for a first industry is the one I know intimately but by my reckoning my basic plan could be ported to inspire job creation without management in other markets. That's all fanciful compared to what I have prepared to rejuvenate the performing arts industry in Las Vegas, once everyone is up to speed and on board.
