Just to follow-up on topics for research within the group, here's a
list of people who've volunteered to look into these topics
- Health care programs (Danielle)
- Visa/travel issues (Matthew)
- Grants- what's available, how are they obtained? (Lisa)
(mind you, these people would be glad to work with others here to find info!)
NO TAKEN YET:
- The Cabaret Law
- Affordable artist housing
I myself am gonna assist all/any above and provide any info I have
already. Any other takers?
PLUS... for the goals we came up with, any ideas about how to narrow
or expand what we came up with at the last meeting?
P.S. Nice Voice article, written by our own Trish Romano!
