It’s official! The awesome folks at Awesome Foundation Calgary have named us one of their Top 4 to pitch on Thousand Dollar Thursday! We’ll be given just 90 seconds to pitch The People’s Poetry Festival to the 12 investors who will, at the end of the night, decide which of the four presenters/organizations/events will receive a $1000 grant.
The three other contenders we’ll be pitching along side on Thursday, July 26, are super nifty:
- Urban Stationary by Kai Sinclair & Alastair Pollock of C4: “Local semi-permanent art installations in Calgary Transit stations.”
- Culinary Treasure Hunt by Anneke Scholten: “Find Calgary’s hidden culinary treasures during this one day event!
- Call for Help! by Derek Wilken: “A comic book for young adults to promote the ConnecTeen line at the Distress Centre.”
So come on down to the DaDe Art and Design Lab, 1327 9 Ave SE at 6pm to cheer us on!
