These new projects often lead to businesses and since I cannot run a dozen businesses or organizations, but want all of them to live, I'm going to share them here today. You can look at any of the things below and do one of two things.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and meet with me to discuss being a leader on any of these projects.
Look at these projects and come up with a better idea.
Totally up to you if you want to include me or not, but these things have started and I have either lost the leader for them or just haven't revealed them yet. I want them to live though and that is more important to me than anything else. So see below and if you want to be a leader or know one, drop me a line.
The Small Pond Musical Theater Writing Lab- This was done once last year. You can read all about it here. The project is education based and I think it could be really cool in the hands of the right person.
The I.P.A- This is the Independent Producers Alliance of NY. It is an organization created for the purpose of bringing independent producers together to work out problems in the industry and search for new solutions. The original meetings were very productive, so I am hoping someone will take the reigns
The Small Pond Ticket dock- A permission based list I created for people to be able to target their comp offers and gather info from the folks who took the tickets. It also provided a weekly blast of ticket offers for Independent Theatre productions.
Small Seeds- A seed capital firm for arts based start ups. Basically relationships would be built with investors who put small amounts into new arts based start up projects. So anyone with an idea for a new website or i phone app in the theatre world would have somewhere to go for funds.
Small Pond Job Hunt- A service that posts available jobs to a permission based list on google docs. The main difference between other job boards, some jobs I will know the poster personally and be able to put a good word in.
Real Estate Project- I'd like to get a team together to buy a building and bring the arts community in the city into one space. Lofty and long term, but looking for partners now.
Small Pond Producers Sprint- This was an event where we gave someone a week to put up a show. It was really awesome and a lot of fun.
And there you have it.
Look forward to haring from the leaders.
