Now that we have the logo, the real work starts!
Yesterday was the first hands on day. The first day where people actually were physically doing stuff: painting, cutting, cleaning, fixing... Truly exciting and fun! We wanted to apply the orange of the logo everywhere in a creative way. Since we don't have much money, nor time, everything had to be improvised. Instead of properly printing t-shirts, we created a stencil and spray-painted them. Kendal had the great idea of refurbishing the dilapidated bus in the sqaure and turn into a video exhibition space. This felt like one of the commercials I use to see on TV where start basketball players go to a local community for a day and paint houses and plant trees, etc. This time it was real. There was a real sense of excitement in everyone: to slowly see a run down art center into a new and energetic place with color and innovative ideas.
