It's shocking to take a step back and look at all that we have accomplished!
Over the past 20 months, we have raised $75,000 (including a $15,000 MRAC Grant) collaborated with nearly 50 local artists producing 10 projects, which have received over 25,000 views on YouTube! It was especially meaningful to put money in the hands of performing artists during a time when the pandemic prevented them from earning their usual performance incomes. Sincerest thank you's to all involved!
Inquiring minds want to know - what’s next for OOPS?!
Back in June, the board approved a hiatus following the completion of The Recipe Series, so OOPS will be mostly dormant through the New Year. I have loved collaborating with other artists, encouraging them and supporting their artistry; however, I’m burned out and my battery needs some time to recharge. While you wait for our return, check out all of our Past Projects!
As always, I am available by email and phone and I’d love to stay in touch, grab a coffee, or walk a lake together. And for those artists with project ideas, PLEASE reach out! Although not actively producing, I’m always up for a good idea and getting things in the pipeline!
If you’d like to stay apprised of my upcoming performances, you can join my personal mailing list and receive the occasional email about my exploits.
I'll leave you with some quotes:
“Every great opportunity has many reasons why it could fail. You have to trust your ability to solve problems along the way. People who look for reasons why things won’t work, struggle to take action. People who look for reasons why things will work - and solve problems as they arise - make things happen.” - James Clear
“Your passion is waiting for your courage to catch up.”- Isabelle Lafleche
"Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can." - Arthur Ashe
