August 7, 2017 Fingers crossed for grant funding!
Whew. It has been a whirlwind month finishing up the tracking of the album component (90% done) and applying to grants to help take this project off the ground. We’ve applied to funding from 4 foundations so far and have one more to go before we just cross our fingers and hope all those years of essay writing in college have paid off. I’ve always been averse to crowdfunding sites, though I’ve used them in emergencies (robberies…always robberies), so funding this very public-facing project with foundation support seemed like a neat and appropriate way to help realize it and build something even bigger than what we’ve been working towards.
Feeling very good about the promotion of the event so far with our partners at Circle of Care and The Dinner Party. Looking forward to seeing what other groups might be involved in promoting to their respective grief-stricken communities.
And of course it’s worth noting that you fans of ye old rock n roll will enjoy this record, and this show, irregardless of your grief status…
