RipStar-Uniting through Music!
Multimedia artist and promoter Robert Jackson recently commented, I am fulfilling my desire to deliver art, education, and entertainment to the community I serve. These shows are a unique doorway to celebrate an opportunity to come together for good reasons. By serving the community, talent seekers, and the public, the Vaudeville Program presented by RipStar is providing opportunities for artists and music industry scouts, in addition to entertaining guests.
The mission of RipStar is to unite artists and audiences through the power of music. The Gaelic translation of the mission emphasizes that there is also an underlying intention to have people witness the revolutionary power of music in action.

Rob is writing a book titled The Brink to educate decision makers to identify, reduce, and prevent violence. Empowerment and learning how to become better agents of peace are central themes.
Excerpt from The Brink
Foundations of Peace
You are for Peace if you are developing and promoting activities that aid the betterment of life and if you try to live in a sustainable and nonviolent manner. A healthy standard of success shows nonviolent human behavior improves or produces sustainability, harmony and better social and environmental living conditions. As a result, peace practitioners generally have more favorable opportunities to maximize the development of potentials and live fuller happier lives. This is easily confirmed by observing the tragic circumstances and consequences of violence, which in most circumstances is avoidable if peace making skills and resources are available.
Healthy social development is defined as the natural progression of life that is not interrupted by avoidable harmful interferences. Advocating for and demanding reasonable standards that emphasize practical ways to explain and support healthy social development is fundamental to the safety and welfare of all life. Nonviolent or sustainable behaviors help to identify, prevent, and solve problems that restrict development or impose harm.
We need more reasonable definitions, standards and responses to the problems evident in the world. The healthy ethical and behavioral basis we propose and demonstrate is a preventative and proactive approach to solve many present day problems. Contingency Theory attempts to explain and predict relationships of wellness and illness in mind, body, society, and nature. Apathy is not consent, it is the demand for empowerment!
Folk movements have and will always be at the center of progress. Music and art are powerful mediums, wherein the stories we tell and the demonstrations we make are sometimes explicit and sometimes implied, or subliminal. The dance between interpretation and the immediate experience somehow offers consumers an experience that can be lived and relived in an intimate exchange between artists and fans. The impermanent, yet persistent contributions of art make art an undeniable force that impacts society for better, or for worse. Linking art to revolution presents the opportunity to examine content and observe impacts. The question of responsibility and standards of success in all industries should not be driven by supply and demand especially when intention and outcomes are sometimes more essential in the long run. Artists can mail demos and press kits to RIPSTAR 806 Moultrie SF, CA 94110. Check out more at www.ripstar.cfsites.org
