Mini Grant SenseMaker Project Story or Micro-Narrative

  • Grant Project: Express Yourself Art Ball
  • Description: An activity that happens once
  • Role: I received a mini grant for an idea I had

I had severe anxiety about the venue for the event. Renting a venue and also providing refreshments for a crowd of people can be difficult and very pricey. I listed the help of Kenya Chaney from Healthier Delray Beach, and she helped me get a meeting with the curator for the Arts Warehouse. To make a long story short, the meeting resulted in me getting the venue for free. Not only will it be for free, but I will also be allowed to keep the artowrk their for an entire month(May)
