Let’s Connect! Every organization and business is unique.
I simply love this work and have done so many iterations that I know this process can be molded, shifted and structured just right for any situation. We can work smaller or larger, with less or more people, in stages of two or three workshops in order to complete our desired outcomes. Nothing is impossible!
I invite you to contact me to schedule time to talk so that we can get a better feel for what we both do and what we might be able to do for each other. If it's a good fit, we can discuss customizing the Create + Connect project specifically for your clients.
Let’s connect and see what we can create together so you can connect with your community through this amazing process.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Is my organization or company a good fit for this project?
Creating and sharing these images allows collaborators (your clients) the opportunity to choose to express and represent themselves outside of trauma, be nourished, and to invite viewers to connect with them as whole and equal humans. As I mentioned above, this project offers incredible impacts for clients, staff and donors:
They are offered a visual voice to share their story unlike ever before.
They are learning things and connecting with other people in the community by being witnessed in this format.
They are being celebrated in a unique way - being a part of the fundraising instead of just having the fundraising being ‘about’ them
For admin / staff / team:
This process enhances the creative leadership of the executive director.
This project represents an innovative approach to furthering your mission.
It is a visual translation of the unique population they serve, instead of just a graph or list of percentiles.
These experiences increase staff morale as it deepens relationships with their clients.
For donors / community:
This project shares a unique vision of who they are supporting.
This project connects with their hearts which inspires greater, more generous giving.
