I’m writing to ask for help with the Extravagant Signals series that I am curating June 15-22. For seven nights, Gallery 1965 on Main St. will be overrun by an eclectic group of shows that features Juno-winning musicians, poetry champions, internationally touring tap dancers, accordion lovers and more. It all runs alongside an art show by local artist Oli K.
It’s a huge undertaking for myself and my co-organizers, which is why I’m asking for your help. Please take a look at the schedule, and see if any of the events strike your fancy. We’re hosting a wide-range of communities under this banner, so I feel confident that there will be something that speaks to you in this list. Social dance? Ukuleles? Poetry? It’s so niche it’s mainstream.
When you find a show you’re interested in, drop me a line at email@example.com, and I’ll let you know how you can help. We’re all working on the love\beer\thanks economy: there will be lots to go around if you come on board.
We also need help getting the word out. If you’re on FB, you can help us by re-posting our event. If you go to school, work, play or otherwise frequent a place that has walls, consider meeting up with me for a high-five and a poster that you can use to make those walls look nicer.
Thank you so much for considering this call-out!
Excited little dance,
