ContentMint: Five Minutes or Less

Constraint is the mother of invention. What if you only had a minute to say or do something important… to get it out there or off your chest? Join us as we gather to share – a song, a poem, a play, a meditation, a speech or a manifesto. What would you share? The Gettysburg Address was a mere three minutes. Five Minutes or Less collaborators have a luxurious five minutes to say it, sing it, play it, listen to it, chant it, describe it, mumble it, mull it over or scream it. Just get it out there into the world…be heard.
