Hello Wobbly Friends!
Wobbly needs your help and it will only take you 30 seconds a day to help! May is National Mobility Awareness Month and Yulia and Erik entered a contest to win a brand new wheelchair accessible van. Every year, 4 people out of hundreds are chosen to receive a new accessible vehicle (which cost up to $50,000 each!). But the only way to win is if people vote for us. This is where you come in. We need as many votes as possible. Click on the link below, log in through facebook and vote for us.You can even earn an extra vote by answering a question. It will only take 30 seconds and you can vote once every 24 hours. And if you are so inclined, maybe you can share the link with your friends, family, co-workers, boss, doctor, dentist, neighbors?
Being able to travel together with ease would transform our lives. We would be able to say yes to so many more professional opportunities (and there are many on the horizon)! It would mean the world to us if you can help make this happen! We have until May 31st to get as many votes as possible.
Here is the actual link that you can copy and paste to share:

Waking the Green Sound is a fantasy world where performers transform as they move through unique worlds. The creatures transition between fantastical, dreamlike and vibrant scenes. The film was created with co-artistic directors of Wobbly Yulia Arakelyan and Erik Ferguson, guest artist Grant Miller, cinematographer Ian Lucero, and photographer Kamala Kingsley. An original music score by experimental musicians Sweetmeat adds an aural layer that completes the immersive landscape. We created this film out of a desire to connect to the natural world on a deeper, visceral level; to connect to nature through movement in a wordless dreamy landscape.
