Hello Creative Instigators!
I just wanted to send a follow up to our group after our first meeting.
The agenda has all relevant links:http://www.meetup.com/createandinstigate/files/
First, big thanks to Chris and eROI for the Super Sweet Conference
Room and the beer. Thanks Chris, you rock!
We started by doing intros and each person told us one of their needs.
This was one of my favorite parts of the evening. If your need gets
met through our group, please let me know. It's fun to watch people
helping each other and it will be cool to see if this experiment
yields any results.
The wonderful Jerri Chou told us about her various projects. Thanks
Jerri! And congrats to you and Jeff for winning copies of the book,
"Three Cups of Tea," which were generously donated to us by Alan from
Eastern Mountain Sports. Thanks Alan!
Ilana G's ticket was drawn and she was given a $100 bill to give away
creatively. She'll report back to us within a month. This was inspired
by Courtney Martin's project, "Secret Society for Creative
Philanthropy." We can't wait to hear her story!
The Origami Crane folding was a lot of fun, but we ran out time to
really dig in to ideas of how we could use them for social action. I
created a google doc for us to brainstorm, so feel free to contribute
I'm not certain if sharing the link will also give you access to edit
the document, this email will be followed by an invite to join the
document (just in case).
I'm working on our next meetup, so I'll post info as soon as I get a
few of the details solidified. (exciting stuff!)
If you're craving some more fun in the meantime, join me at the Media
That Matters Film Festival, coming up June 2nd. If you plan to come,
let me know so we can say hello. I'll be one of the volunteers. (I
helped narrow down the films for the judges, and it's a really nice
collection of shorts on a variety of important topics.)
Final housekeeping note: As soon as you know you can't make it for
whatever reason, please change your RSVP so our wait listers can get
in on the fun. Thanks.
I really enjoyed meeting such smart, cool, nice, talented people!
