Outcome of a Consult

“Hey Alison, I hope you’re doing alright these days. It’s been a long time since we met at the Loft’s coffee shop - here’s just a little update on how the project has progressed and how you helped that along. Here’s the website for Recreation Arts. One thing you mentioned during our talk was that you weren’t sure that non-artists would get “why” we’re doing art in this way. That’s something I’ve really tried to clarify in all our messaging now. You also said that we should charge a fee for the pilot. Earlier in 2020, we had a 12-week pilot set up with *** that they were paying us $ for. But the pilot was set to start in early April - so clearly that didn’t happen. We’re now exploring virtual options to still do that pilot… The consultation with you was helpful beyond these ways, too - in the energy and drive you injected into the process by hearing where we were at and helping us think about to move forward. Many, many thanks. -ryan” - Ryan Evans, Recreation Arts
