The Emperor's Bridge Campaign

TO HONOR THE LIFE + ADVANCE THE LEGACY OF EMPEROR NORTON

RESEARCH • EDUCATION • ADVOCACY

In addition to conducting and presenting original research, offering educational and commemorative events, and pushing forward our original effort to have the Bay Bridge named for Emperor Norton...

The Emperor's Bridge Campaign is engaged in a wide variety of additional projects intended to honor the life and advance the legacy of the Emperor.

Some of these are active, ongoing efforts that the Campaign has been working on since we became a nonprofit  in fall 2014.

Some are concept-phase opportunities that are "on the runway" right now — but that the Campaign wants to nurture to maturity.

(Still others — like our Emperor Norton Birth Date Research Project, our ARchive of Emperor Norton in Art, Music & Film (ARENA) and our new Emperor Norton Map of the World — started out on the list below but have developed enough to "graduate" into our "permanent collection" of resources.) 

All of them represent things that we believe need doing on behalf of the Emperor — and on behalf of the living histories and the cultural arcs that can be traced through him.

Please explore the following project pages, to see what else we're up to — and to consider how you might like to plug in!
