I'm looking to change how we recruit members to give Patchwork a better financial outlook and to recognize and reward our members, both as benefactors and as artists. Currently, members receive a number of benefits; however, they might be regrouped or restructured in a way to grow funding and participation in our events.
Although Patchwork has loyal membership, many of the founding members are fading from participation and/or do not have the skills to do the behind the scenes work to keep us growing. Cultivating a new membership will aid us financially as a member-supported organization and bring in skilled volunteers or interns to complete tasks related to research, record keeping, and outreach.
This project is important to grow our people power.
Patchwork: A Storytelliing Guild is dedicated to the promotion of storytelling as a vibrant, contemporary art form, as well as a folk tradition, a way of celebrating life, and a tool for personal and social transformation.
