” #WeToo #ForTheIndividual : Dear John💕Doe-Big-Corporate-Scale-Every-Thing-Head-Quarters 💕©CaliLili™
We appreciate – some – of the ‘humanitarian work’ done by “JohnDoeBigCorporateScaleEveryThingHeadQuarters ” —
even though you sometimes brazenly, disrespectfully + wrongly ” borrow from ” our work —
for #SocialJustice + #EnvironmentalJustice
as a TruliIndie™ artist
a 21stCenturyGirl —
a survivor of a “MeToo” sexist misogynistic racist homophobic climate denying corporatocracy fuelling the “CulturalIndustrialComplex™
and on behalf of my team, my “tribe” : generations of “kids of all ages colors creeds + stages ” ™ © along with our grandmothers + grandfathers — similarly afflicted by the indifference of “BIG” (stretching back way before my time) –
I declare the “DeclarationOfIndiePenDance™© honoring a ” 21stCenturyRenaissanceInTheWorks™© “
My team + I work diligently – on a small scale + to promote awareness of important causes and to “weave culture “© on my loom : WildWovenSlow™
Formerly we were ok with following ‘big’ accounts — such as yours — even if they had thousands of followers and even when the “big” – indifferently discarded their own followers- chose only to follow back a few – mostly other “big” accounts. So it goes – “big” supports “big” – the big get bigger .
Recently though… I’ve been thinking … yeah, I’m doing that again …
the fact of the matter is – that independent artists like myself and my team,
as well as “individuals” with “free agency” – freedom to speak out , speak up, freedom to speak for ourselves — about ourselves —
we are neither “big” enough nor interested in attending big donor “charity” functions – strange as it may seem to you — we are also not as “entertained” by your “lifestyles of the obscenely wealthy” – as you may believe we are … stranger still — you may be surprised or confused by our wish to be “makin’ a livin’ not a killin’ “™ © by means of our own handmade meaningful work – not your predigested pablum.
I’ve noticed that – even human rights + other righteous causes have now become increasingly “gentrified” in what I name in my writings :
“GentrificationOfCulture™” – as though it’s not enough for “big” to be big – now – “big” needs to be worshipped for the table scraps they toss Humanity from the table of a charity … In fact every bit of dysfunction we witness in politics today – was auditioned in our cultural big media laboratories – funded by – you.
“we the people ” — including those of us working for years in the humanities – as artists or thinkers, teachers, activists, social workers – must be the makers of our own culture – without your helicopter mind and hand directing our every move from your bank account.
Now that you also want to “gobble up” this dignified work space — which we built — like so many artist neighborhoods built out of the ashes of poverty – that you swoop in and buy up — pushing us out of our own masterpiece — so that we must worship at your tables —
We too – are not just figuratively, but now literally, viscerally – an “endangered species” –
We Too find ourselves at the mercy of the trajectory of a path — which leaves all the ” humanity-based meaningful work” — to the 1 percent – who don’t need the work — they need to be worshipped in spite of their greed – so they “Don” our handmade wardrobes – and only then – declare it ‘holy’ –
– thus – pushing the people out of their own hoods and tribes – in order to keep us in the place you designated for us : “indentured servitude ” to your benevolent kingly bank account – even when it comes to our humanity, our environment, our arts , our very Culture – and therefore our legacy, our history, herstory — our future – our lives.
This form of “gentrified thinking” – also demands that we be grateful for your charity.
But we must not be grateful.
21st Century Social media was born to be democratic, meritorious but also – personal, new-found oxygen for the individual — village-oriented – not Corporate – not “mega.”
#WeToo choose not to harken backwards in time towards gentrification —
but to bring forward all that our ancestry built into a strong culture “for the individual” – into an inclusive – and fair —
with happiness, freedom, wellness, education, food safety — economic justice working hand in hand with environmental justice — at the forefront of our GDP – not an afterthought for table scrap billionaire philosophies —
“BigTinyFuture™ ” – for the whole planet – not just 1 percent.
We dedicate every one of our PoeticJusticeP rojeX™ to this “BigTinyFuture™ ©

Interview 2019 :
Published by Cali Lili™ Cali Lili Indies™ Pictures Words Music In Motion™ feMt0™studi0*surFLoft*H20™VenusBeach™CuttingEdgeOfThePacific™
Informal Biography + Anecdotes :
"I'm still that teenage runaway with a scholarship ... lol, I got a Masters' Degree from NYU, but no high school diploma ... "
Actress * Director * Singer * Songwriter Cali Lili skipped several grades (having been tested as reading at college level in grade school) took her first college course in the entire works of Shakespeare, at age 13, never graduated high-school, never even went to a prom, was swooped up, landing at NYU, then completed her Masters' Degree on full scholarship with awards / stellar reviews for early works.
The Cali Lili ™ Band recorded a completely original stand-alone "Urban / World / Rock © " styled Singer-Songwriter Debut Album which forms the core of the soundtrack for her debut feature film :
'eVe N'god ™ this female is not yet rated ™ ' now streaming on demand on iTunes 🍎Apple TV etc…
She made the feature length narrative motion picture with an ALL FEMALE production team.
'eVe N'god this female is not yet rated ™ ' is perhaps, the first ( or one of the first ) production of it's kind : a theatrical feature length motion picture, in which the technical production roles employed only women during principal photography. She began pre-pre-production on this "fempoword™" project in 2010, including rehearsal footage.
Cali is told that she was born "early" and "on the water." Having experienced an extremely difficult childhood, she does not revisit those days, and often speaks out against abuse.
Born of multi-cultural heritage, Cali is keenly aware and concerned with what she sees as a form of "tribalism" too often employed as "nationalism." Cali writes about these issues and acts accordingly when it comes to her public image.
Cali adores being an actor and takes that craft very seriously, but found herself turning down 3 acting offers, that she felt were disempowering to women, in order to "turn up" what she calls fempower (TM) by scraping together "half a shoestring budget" to build her "green" "off-grid," upcycled "surfshack" feMt0™studi0 in the "floating" neighborhood of Venice Beach in Los Angeles, California where she makes "Signature" auteur Motion Pictures, Albums and Books, "TinyMultiMedia™️ HandMade2MakeADifference™”©
Based on the quality of her work as an artist, and her uncompromising dedication to excellence, she then raised modest financing for her upcoming Slate of Motion Pictures, Albums, and Books.
She works from the Cutting Edge Of The Pacific ™" @ The Cali Lili Indies ™ " where she stays "afloat" connected with her love and devotion to "rippling waters of the world"
Cali's degree included extensive studies in anthropology as well as performance techniques from all over the globe. She holds an added background of intense New York studies in dance /choreography.
Cali is proud to share her deep connection with "Mother Africa." She is greatly inspired by African culture, the cultures of Oceania, and that of her other diverse intercultural studies.
Cali's quote :
"We all originate from one mother in Africa, the Ocean is our collective unconscious, so let us honor each other, our mutual mother, our waters, and our blue mothership, earth. In doing so, we save ourselves "©
Cali's films are inclusive of lgbtq characters and the authentic real lives of these characters. She also delves into the reality of "being female" and a "multi-cultural blend" who "appears to be white," in a biased world.
Cali's career in movies began as a teenager, flying back and forth from NY to LA, while working as an "au pair."
As a kid, she "raised herself" in spite of an abusive childhood and vowed she would never marry, but she married her male partner in 2012, contrary to gossip that they were married earlier.
The partnership between Cali and Wings is unique and her work / films reflect upon relationships and gender / orientation / politics in culture and society in the 21st Century .
Womens' Rights, Human Rights, Feminist, Lesbian, LGBTQ and Bi-Sexual matters are included, along with other Social Justice and Environmental Justice as part of her projects, sharing stories about the authentic lives of characters navigating the "waters" of the 21st Century.
With legendary 'Edward G. Robinson as one of the distinguished members of her ancestry, Cali dedicates herself to honoring a tradition of excellence and earning her "place" as an up-and-coming young artist.
She has been granted the rights to the favorite novel of legendary 'Zane Grey (I) by Grey's son Loren Grey ( writer and educator) for a film adaptation in which she will co-star.
As a young Indie Performer and Creator, Cali and her partner, veteran actor 'Wings Hauser' along with Cali's team of handpicked skilled film and music professionals, are producing a growing catalogue of original films and songs.
Cali is already busy in preps for the next green-lighted project, using her proprietary methodologies as described in her book "The Declaration of IndiePenDance™"
In the past, Cali previously worked in a collaboration agreement deal with Academy Award winning Dutch producer, 'Hans de Weers' (Antonia's Line) which ended when Cali realized it was time to build her own tiny studio, in order to make projects that empower Women, LGBTQIA , Civil Rights and Climate Science communities.
Her wish is to continue sharing her heart with the hearts of the beautiful fans she hears from, daily.
We here at GTA Management, hope you will take some time to support her works.
