I’m wanting to attach a couple of “stories” about VHS to the funding applications. Eveyone likes stories, especially funders, especially with a picture / quote.
I am framing a funding ask around Open House nights, and our workshops, as they provide value to the larger community. I want to show the community impact VHS has.
For example, one story I’m including is how VHS has supported my work at Makers Making Change in creating access technologies, repairing AT, and bringing in various community members to give back to people that need help with accommodations. Social impact.
I would love other stories or tidbits. Things around social impact, developing small businesses, environment, skill development, helping people repair their things, art projects, etc etc.
Anyone please share, some thoughts that come to mind:
@Gibbtall - have a one pager about Rocketman props? How long have you been hosting cosplay nights? How does VHS allow you to connect to others in the community?
@mike - how many (ballpark) woodturning classes and woodscrap challenges have you done? What does VHS mean to you to drive so much programming?
@Majicj and others, dont you have some community art projects that you have worked on at VHS? Any art projects has VHS members as part of their origins?
Any small business using VHS as a part of making a go?
Enlighten me of some of the greatness VHS has made.
