At the suggestion of our tech ambassador Rose, we are going to test out a new kind of workshop in the last couple of weeks of our pilot program. We'll set the date and location and let you come! Our first attempt looked good on paper, but perhaps August isn't the best time to get people from the neighborhood into a workshop. We were set to train folks in Mt. Airy at the Blue Marble Bookstore, unfortunately no one showed up! We're going to focus on some different outreach strategies, specifically hitting the pavement with invitations, for our upcoming workshop, focusing on Ogontz Avenue small business. Please join us for the small business workshop at the West Oak Lane library on Tuesday, August 15th @ 5:30!
We were also at the Jazz in the Park festival last week and had a great time meeting folks from all around Philadelphia enjoying themselves at Morris Estates in West Oak Lane. It was great to be at a public event and to set up some quick interviews with attendees to chat about the event and why they enjoy attending.
You can find us at a similar event this Sunday, we'll be taking our tablets and microphones to the Roosevelt Mall flea market in Northeast Philadelphia. If you're in the area, or want to check out the local wares join us and give us a sound byte or two!
