Greetings! You are invited to join us Tuesday, July 7th from 5-7pm on the patio at Silver Moon Brewing in Bend to determine how Bend Music Collective will continue to enhance and serve the area music community. Social distancing will be practiced at this meeting and masks are welcome. Please respond to this email if you are interested in coming so that we can confirm numbers with Steve at Silver Moon, who will be setting the space up for us. Already, we’ve brought together dozens of artists from our region, collaborating with Bend Roots and Central Oregon Recording to create High Desert Calling Vol. 1; an album showcasing the diverse musical talent here in Central Oregon. We are looking for people interested in taking on leadership roles at Bend Music Collective– ideally board positions, though not required– to attend this meeting; you’re invited to just come and learn more about this, too. Seeking people who are not afraid to fail, are willing to meet regularly (weekly or monthly) as well as share their time, energy and creativity to guide the founding of this endeavor are most welcome. July 7th is an opportunity to ask questions, share ideas and create our organization and community together. On July 7th, we’ll be gathering to discuss what direction to take by starting with the following topics: · How to accomplish this with a diverse leadership team · Possible cooperative business model and what that means · Core values and how to represent them in the community; What inspires you? What do you want to see in the community? What’s artistic cooperation look like to you? · Consider changing the name Bend Music Collective to something else, because the acronym BMC means something totally different to many in this area… The finalized agenda for July 7th will be sent out prior to the meeting. This is your chance to take on leadership in our community and if you are interested please contact Charlie Utter (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions as well as to confirm your attendanceand recieve the meeting agenda. Please feel free to forward this to anyone and invite them to join us. Thank you and we look forward to seeing everyone on July 7th!
