Our initiatives for 2021
A lot has happened since we had our first brainstorming meeting at Gertrude Stein’s salon in February 2019.
We successfully filed and became an official non profit 501(c) (3) & registered California non profit since June 2019.
For 2021 we have identified the following initiatives:-
1 Reclaim the Forum Theater in Lone Pine. We received a community grant to help launch a series of performances.
We are currently making the space useable and hope to commence once the COVID guidelines are in place.
We launched an online zoom event using the Forum as our ‘venue’ - this has allowed us to showcase performances even during the pandemic. It was a success, 52 attendees watching 32 performances. Encouraged we hope to continue with these events and to offer the Forum as a zoom space for anyone in the community who wants to use it.
2) Help with reclaiming empty storefronts in collaboration with the City of Bishop
3.) Continue to conduct Re-use Workshops in conjunction with Inyo County’s showcasing of Gladys the giant re-cyclescope at events & schools.
4.) Create a ReUse Give and Take maker / work-shop space currently upstairs at the loft in Lone Pine. We are looking for a more permanent venue for this effort.
5.) Collaborate more with other groups, agencies and non profits for further our mission. We aim to share resources to achieve our common goals.
Meet the Board
We currently have 5 board of directors who
meet on a monthly basis.
