Ladies and Gentlemen,
Strap yourselves in, cause I have some news for you!!
Barrel of Makers has never been more popular; it’s true! Ask Bert, he will tell you ALL about it! Seriously. I couldn’t pay for this kind of publicity, LITERALLY! We have very little money…
…but all that is going to change ;)
I (Brian Scatasti) was invited by the WRC to attend two, THAT’S RIGHT TWO events to bring together like minds to rejuvenate Wilmington Delaware.
The first: Alfred Lance, Maiza Hixson, Julie Van Blarcom, Diana Milburn, Jessica Jenkins, Ellen Priest, Michael Kalmbach, myself & the wonderful, the great Umberto Crenca of AS220 …
(just to name a few, and if I missed you, I really missed you)
came together last night at the Chris White Gallery to discuss our future plans.
Honestly, you probably could not have asked for a better, more intimate gathering of movers & shakers in Wilmington.
Ms. Van Blarcom could not have been a more pleasant person to talk to, and talk more we shall about having more of a makerspace presence in that playground they call a museum. (I’m all for the playground btw!)
Today: The Annual Big Thinkers Meeting hosted by the WRC and sponsored by MANY others, had me almost in tears on the ride home. No kidding. To know that what we are doing is the most right thing possible, for so many reasons and people, is a BEAUTIFUL thing.
They had food, coffee and juice. Talks by the Mayor, Carrie Grey of the WRC, (who I will also be meeting with) a VERY inspirational talk again by Bert, and a slew of people who all wanted to work with us.
IT WAS LIKE THE HIGHEST SCORE IN BARREL OF MAKERS WACH-A-MOLE!!!
Folks, big things are happenning. I would love to go into extraordinary detail, but you have emails to check, and birds to keep angry.
