I can’t believe it’s already March.
My birthday month! The smell of winter holding on for dear life!
Lonely Arts Club is heading into its third month of life and it’s a bouncing baby of a whole-lotta-something.
Over these past two months, it’s been a rollercoaster. Managing powerful feelings, figuring out how to submit grants (because, duh, all artists should be paid for their work!) and mainly, trying to maintain a steady voice. Slow and steady wins the race.
After years of writing for others, curating a voice uniquely our own to represent something as important as this arts community is another beast entirely.
Due to our newness, this year also feels like a year for experimentation. A year where we dig our little roots into the ground (as twirly and twisted as they may be!), throwing out ideas into the universe and seeing what sticks.
As it stands, we’ve got so many lovely interviews (like these ones from Max Delsohn or Sarah Galvin!). And so many wonderful things in the works: A husband and wife team! Creating a TV show from scratch! Documentaries!
So, my friends, Spring is coming and it’s time to nurture new life in this city.
The things I’m reaching out into the universe for:
- Do you have an interesting arts-related personal essay?
- What about a multimedia video that needs an audience?
- A funny review of a comedy set you’re a part of?
- We also would love more stuff on food or kid-friendly events!
- BONUS: Do you love writing up grants and want to help a spirited half-Italian lady learn the ropes?
Frankly, experimenting is how to see what people are into.
After all, if we’re not thinking out of the box, then we are a bunch of squares. (I’m very proud of this joke.)
Thank you for traveling along with us. I hope to see more of you soon.
