Spring Fling, by m

Standard

An organization known as the Stand Firm Central Network organized a “Spring Fling” last week.  I was able to attend the event, which was designed to connect potential volunteers with arts organizations.

I’ve been hoping to find some volunteer work to do with a theatre that will give me some valuable experience, so this event was perfect for me!

It was set up like speed dating: it took place in a bar, and each arts organization was seated at a different table. We, the potential volunteers, went from table to table to meet potential matches.

I learned about several different arts organizations that I didn’t even know existed (there were about ten different tables).  I felt like it was a great way to meet people in the industry and practice my “elevator speech”/pitch.

I’ll be sure to keep you posted when I’ve found an arts organization that’s a perfect match!

About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.

  1. sounds like a great way to find out about arts organizations…and a redemptive take on the social trend of giving actual potential friends only 6 minutes to prove themselves~!
