Item 6: Open Floor
A. (Jenny) “Pop-up” shows idea revisited. For example, having bands play pop up shows that are announced the day of. These can occur at a park, a backyard, etc. and can be free or collect donations for artist(s). Goal is to keep it moving, be announced quickly, and create hype!
B. (Jessica) ‘Adopt-A-Highway’ event was a success. Thank you to everyone who came out! The weather was nice and there was less trash to clean up this time around.
C. (Jenny) We should start looking into filing out the Google Grants. Google gives out $80,000 in grants. We can look into using professional grant writers, if needed. Recommended timeline to get this started is before April (tax season).
D. (Jenny) Bootleggers as a potential spot for live music. JT will look into it this week.
E. (Jessica) By-laws meeting needs to be scheduled. We will invite elders and anyone who would like to participate.
