"We need a shift in our thinking, a shift in our actions, and a shift in our culture. Spirituality, Gore & Horror are all part of the entertainment industry that shape & influence our youth culture today (through books, movies & video games), and instead of doing away with these realities, we want to connect more deeply with our youth through the same mediums (via music, art & wisdom), remaining highly relevant to the sub-culture & dealing directly with those deeper parts of ourselves we may have overlooked. We use the same kind of alternative art forms & spiritual themes, but instead of leaving our audience in the dark, we purposely reconcile & consistently anchor our media in the same core, foundational, transcendent truths that have helped develop the human spirit (documented historically & culturally) for individuals, and within nations. We reframe the same sounds, shapes & stories, in a holistic transformative way, that helps redeem the shadow of past, to produce a positive shift in Australian youth culture, one young person at a time. Our content helps to stimulate discussion, inspire community & exploration, and build self-worth & identity. Without change, change is impossible. This is why we bring something different, and why we use our point of difference to serve our youth in three transformative ways: Artist Development, Personal Development, and Spiritual Development. With premium services available internally at Wise Serpent from late 2020 onwards (free for 15-25 year olds), and also via a growing list of trusted Australian 3rd Party organizations, together, we can help create a positive shift in Australian Youth Culture, through Music, Art, and Wisdom. Longterm our goal is to create not just a program, but a movement & an underground culture, that results in a long-term decline in the Australian youth suicide rate & creates positive outcomes & incredible opportunities for young musicians, artists, and creative entrepreneurs. If you are a local business and would like to partner, you can help us achieve our goal by joining the '37 Club' Podcast from just $37/week. 37 partners help pay me a full-time wage to develop and run the program, 100 partners enable us to rent & run an awesome facility in the city (for example, the old Mars Bar basement venue on Gouger St. is currently up for lease), and 200-300+ partners will enable us to hire full-time staff & invest in consistent advertising campaigns in Adelaide, and Australia wide, as well as internal systems, production, tech & web development, to really fast-track expansion. If you'd like to see how you can help, please book an appointment below." - Grace Lion-Hunter, Wise Serpent Founder (in response to the Australian Mental Health Crisis & Youth Suicide Epidemic)

"PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS" STREET CAMPAIGN
"I first came up with the idea for the 37 Club partners program, after hitting the pavement one afternoon. I found out quickly that locals were willing to give $25/month to help pay for our expenses, which would allow us to help our youth without charge. I called it our "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" campaign.
Before continuing, I rethought my approach AND my target audience, deciding it was more appropriate to ask business owners to partner with us with a slightly larger, howbeit still relatively small amount ($37/week instead of the original $25/month).
My criteria for my new targeted audience was that they should have access to more cash flow than regular people, and should naturally be on the lookout for 'win-win-win' situations (a win for their business, a win for their partner, and a win for the greater community).
That's how I came up with the 37 Club Partners Podcast idea for local businesses.
As well as being my favourite number, it's a small enough amount to ask for without being unreasonable, but also large enough that it compounds & scales quickly, enabling us to accelerate executing our vision to create a positive shift in Australian Youth Culture through Music, Art, and Wisdom.
You can find out more about 37 Club below."
