“Ode has no shape. It is for anybody everybody anywhere anytime. The only thing that connects us is our passion towards art and creating art and trusting the power of love.” - Mayumi Yoshida ODE. Founding Member, in answer to ‘What is Ode?’.

ODE. has launched its IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for its first project ‘Pockets of Light – Ode to Inspiration’.

Ode to Inspiration – a visual jazz-bar, an event where up to 15 artists have created a mélange of songs, films and live work inspired by the word Love.

This project consists of 5 composers each creating an instrumental piece based on LOVE, gifting those to 5 filmmakers who are inspired to make 5 original films inspiring 5 choreographers/directors to create live art for a public event of performances and networking.

“We want to look at a new way of creating art, not following the old paradigm, not using war and violence and fighting.” - Mikal Grant ODE. Founding Member

ODE. is a newly formed collective of diverse Artists and Business professionals producing in the Entertainment Arts, employing a community based resource model, seated in loving intention, to create and inspire.

"Our collective seeks to attract a diverse and international team or family of members to bring inspiration and innovation to every project. To refresh the world… to inspire moments of optimism and happiness…to inspire and nurture the human spirit one person at a time.

We are constantly focusing on innovating. We believe in the simple, not the complex. We participate in markets where we can make a significant contribution. We believe in choosing to do fewer projects so that we can focus on the ones that are truly important to us. We believe in deep collaboration and cross-pollination of our groups, which allows us to innovate in a way that others cannot and we do not settle for anything less than excellence in every group of the collective. We can admit when we are wrong and have the courage to change." - Excerpt from ODE mission statement.

‘Pockets Of Light – Ode to inspiration’ blends together local talent and international influences to create something new and innovative to bring to Vancouver’s Art scene.

ODE.'s goal is to honor the work of inspiration; how an artist can inspire new perspectives of love. An artistic display that stretches beyond entertainment and unites inspired artists to create a string of love-motivated content for an evening of story-telling and curiosity, all arising from the fire of inspiration.

The public's support will help the team to ensure that the Artists who have faith in ODE. will be provided with the greatest place to show their work.

With it, the event will be able to take place at Ginger62 on November 27th 2013.

In addition to the show, ODE. will present shorts and trailers of up and coming artists.

The evening will also feature DJ Eric Lewis following the show, as well as Ginger62’s full bar.

Your support counts.

Follow ODE. on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates! Remember to spread the word and please come join us in November!

“And it’s their feeling that there will be these pockets of light springing up in different parts of the world…” - from ‘My dinner with Andre’ by Wallace Shawn & Andre Gregory
