Hey yo y’all, been awhile since I’ve been on the social tubes. The past couple weeks have seen me marinating in an executive miasma of depression and paranoia. BUT my point is not how freaked the state of the world is, rather, I wanted to discuss something positive and local, the All Ages Arcata project.
For the uninformed, Breakfast All Day Collective is an Arcata based arts and community non-profit organization and a DreamMaker project of The Ink People. BAD has been organizing shows, supporting artists, and putting out zines for years in Arcata but we've always lacked a truly appropriate space to match our vision. We've been dreaming of an all ages venue/community space in Arcata and are on the cusp of dragging that dream into reality.
Presently BAD has found an amazing building in Arcata! We are in the final stage of an indiegogo campaign to raise community support and awareness for the new space. The campaign has been going really well! However, if everyone who has shared the campaign's link or visited the page had donated two bux, we would have our first 6 months covered. Food for thought.
SO in the spirit of getting stuff done, I finally found the time to edit these photos of a BBQ BAD had a while back. Just thinking about the amount of THINGS we can do in the new space sets my neck hairs a-tingle. I'm getting my head back, feeling less like Atlas and more like the small local cog I'm supposed to. Just. So. Excited about what we can accomplish together!
