Art in the Park. Will Makerspace have a booth?
Just wondering if there is any plans to have a makerspace booth at Art in the Park this year?
It would give us some good exposure, and allow our members to sell some of their crafty items.
Any idea what it would cost to get a booth? I know the wood-worker’s club gets one every year and does demonstrations and makes trinkets for people. It’d be pretty interesting to see if we can get a similar setup going. Some combo of education, recruitment, and selling projects we made at the space would be nice.
Yes, this is on my radar, too:
COMMUNITY NON PROFIT APPLICATION FORMS ARE AVAILABLE.
Deadline is Saturday, April 15, 2017.
Are you an arts-related community group or non-profit that would like to have a presence at Art in the Park 2017? Apply online here, or for the manual application form click here.
So we have until April 15th to apply - we will have no problem getting in.
One thing to consider is that everything sold must be handmade or substantially assembled, by the Makerspace.
I am recommending that we kick a percentage to makerspace and look at other awesome opportunities to raise money there (without being too much).
If we could get $1 off each person, that would be $30,000!
The Fee is for a non profit is only $25. Here is the link to register, but we have weeks and weeks before the deadline.
