SPEAKEASY a good place for the kids.
Organized by: Lisa Hawks
Speakeasy, a venture to create and sustain a safe and creative environment for teens RUN by teens with the guidance and support of appointed directors. The space will be available for kids to work, learn, perform and gather. There will be a tea bar, fruits and vegetables and baked goods. As well as events like Friday night Magic the Gathering, there will be art shows, poetry slams and live music. The intention here is for kids to learn teamwork, accountability, and self direction. This is a community effort, designed to have kids be accountable and experience acts of kindness and community. There will be oportunities as we grow for classes, tutoring and mentoring. Swap meets and a co-op room for clothes, books, records ect.
I cant say enough how grateful I am to have an opportunity to help create and sustain what may be a model for other communities to engage in the growth and need for our youth. We are still looking for space, the needs having to comply with health and state reugulations and zoning. It is my deepest wish to remain in Hamilton lauraville. These raised funds will go directly to procure and set up space for a (fingers crossed!!) opening of June 2016. It would be optimal to have expenses covered for 120 days into opening until we have created a working and sustaining mdel to cover expenses,
