Hi everyone! The conference was AWESOME. I was thrilled to be able to participate from Buffalo.
I'm hosting a free "Time & Money Bootcamp" next week, Nov. 9-13th and would like to invite you, and those in your networks, to attend.
It's geared toward anyone trying to launch or reinvigorate a DIY creative community project. Murals, advocacy projects, history interpretations, urban initiatives. I'm mentoring changemakers from across the country who are new or established in their field and have decided to "do something about it" but need guidance, support and accountability.
It's free to attend but I request you register so I know how many will be present. https://www.danasaylor.com/bootcamp
The Drayton Hall Preservation Trust and The Decorative Arts Trust PresentEXPLORING RACE, PLACE & IDENTITY THROUGH LOW COUNTRY COLLECTIONS
Join us for this two-part seminar focused on new research and interpretation of Low Country collections, objects, and historic sites. With presentations by leading scholars at the Black Craftspeople Digital Archive, Classical American Homes Preservation Trust, Drayton Hall Preservation Trust, and the International African American Museum, this program views Charleston's material culture through the lens of race. The interaction of artisans and consumers across communities of free and enslaved individuals created complex and difficult narratives of oppression and agency. These contradictions are found throughout Charleston and its environs. Our presenters are actively investigating and addressing these issues through the interpretation of collections and structures that express the city's past, present, and future.
Wednesday, November 18, 5:00–6:00 pm EST
Thursday, November 19, 5:00–8:00 pm EST
Registration is offered on a pay what you can system. Participants should register for the full program even if they are only able to attend one session. All proceeds will be shared between the Drayton Hall Preservation Trust and the Decorative Arts Trust.
Registration Fee: Pay What You Wish
It is early days to measure response. We just sent out postcards in the last few weeks and we are putting up poster and will distribute flyers door-to-door. We will check back with the cooperating organizations to see if they are hearing from people. We also have encouraged people to sign up for a masmter emailing list we are creating for the neighborhood, and have offered the incentive of a drawing for a $50 grocery store gift card for those that sign up. We will see how all of this turns out. It will take a while. We know that nothing beats door knocks!
