The Nature of Truth

The Nature of Truth project is a forthcoming series of community digital albums and broadcast radio programs featuring music from recording artists for environmental justice, human rights, freedom of speech and culture for the common good.

Community Digital Albums

Recording artists contribute music downloads for Community Digital Albums.

 

The Purpose of The Nature of Truth

By providing music downloads, recording artists create the basis for a new revenue stream supporting noncommercial radio stations and public media organizations;

Stations broadcasting The Nature of Truth radio shows receive financial benefit from the sales of Community Digital Albums;

Community organizations co-promoting The Nature of Truth to their constituents also receive financial benefit from digital album sales while fostering awareness of the need to support public media;

A vibrant collaboration between artists, organizations and public media is proven to enhance economic growth and development in cities across the USA.

For Example:
10,000 Community Digital Albums

Monthly sales of 10,000 Community Digital Albums featuring 20 songs from recording artists contributing music for the common good generates $200,000.

With 50 radio stations broadcasting The Nature of Truth radio shows, each station would receive $1,000 and enhanced services from their national radio organizations.

With 5 national radio organizations participating in The Nature of Truth project, each organization would receive $4,000 for distributing radio shows and proceeds to their affiliated radio stations.

$50,000 could be divided between community organizations and radio stations promoting sales of community digital albums from their websites and newsletters.

The sponsoring national radio or community organization of "The Nature of Truth would receive $30,000. 

Artists for Media Diversity would receive $20,000 to pay for production of more community digital albums & national radio shows, plus create future projects that support and strengthen community development by fostering tour support for recording artists contributing to the common good.

Then, when you imagine the sale of 100,000 community digital albums, you begin to understand the synergetic scope of the vision of the founders of Artists for Media Diversity and the producers of The Nature of Truth.

And we all rise together.
