Need an event space!

We're looking for a venue for the next FAD! Mid-February, can host up to 30-40 artist's work. Need at least 3 days/evenings for set-up, event, and clean-up. 

Anyone know where we can host FAD this year? Respond or email us at create@funadayprov.org

FUN-A-DAY NEEDS YOU!

What began as a gathering at Coffee Exchange and a call from Craigslist, Fun-A-Day Providence enters the fourth year of celebrating the creativity embedded in our beautiful city. 

But, we need your HELP! With time comes changes. The founding organizers of Fun-A-Day Providence are looking to pass the torch to a new group of passionate artists and organizers. While we believe strongly in the mission of Fun-A-Day (to have fun!), new opportunities have pulled us away from organizing this amazing event.

Make Fun-A-Day yours, Providence! 
It's easy: (1) find a location, (2) get some artists together, and (3) throw a party! It doesn't take much; the first Fun-A-Day in Philadelphia was held in someone's home!

If you've attended our celebration events in the past, participated as an inspired sojourner, know someone who is great at organizing, or have a megaphone willing to broadcast the Fun-A-Day mission, let us know! Email us, share our info on Facebook, whatever it takes. This event and this celebration has added so much color and warmth to the coldest of Providence winters, but it can't happen without YOU! 

Stay inspired, Providence!

Newcomers Organizing meeting

Dear friends of Fun A Day Providence,

Hard to believe that another year has rolled around and it's time to start thinking, planning and dreaming about what this year's project will be. For us organizers, it's also time to start thinking, planning and dreaming about what this year's show is going to be like. If you think you'd like to come and put your head together with ours, we would 
really LOVE to have you join of team of organizing folks (organizers). We always need people who have ideas, or connections, or know how, people skills, or just good energy to impart. This group started as a rag a tag bunch (sorry guys!) of assorted amazing people and we'd like to continue that tradition by inviting you to pitch in and be one of us.
Sooooo, the first meeting for this year's organizers is this Saturday morning (10/20) at 10:30 am @ the Coffee Exchange on Wickenden St. in Providence
Whoever you are, you are welcome!!!!!!!!
Look for a friendly group of artists. If one of us has time, we will also be bearing a sign saying, yep, you've guessed it, FUN A DAY ORGANIZERS.
Wishes for a peaceful week and to see you Saturday,



Love,
The Fun A Day Team
