IMPACT MANIFESTO

WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?

#PROJECTIMPACT

NO MANIFESTO

WE WORK FROM A PLACE OF NOT KNOWING

ONE BIG QUESTION

How can we make a positive impact in our community?

AND FROM THIS, A HOST OF SUB QUESTIONS

 

What is the artist's role in community development?

What is an artist?

What does "impact" mean?

How can we fund ourselves outside of the nonprofit model?

How can we engage the community in our work?

How do we measure what we do?

How do we know when we are making an impact?

Can "art for arts sake" co-exist with social practice?

AND AS WE WORK, MORE QUESTIONS ARISE

AS WE FIND *ANSWERS* WE PLACE THEM HERE, BUT WE RECOGNIZE THAT THESE ARE PLACEHOLDERS ONLY AND THERE IS NO ONE SOLUTION

We can only tell our own story. 

If we want to raise awareness of issues outside of our personal experience we seek out those who are working in that field 

Often the simplest solution is the best

We always leave a place better off than when we arrived. This means we raise money or other donations in benefit of a local cause at every event we lead.
