In addition to musical performances, the Festival offers a number of activities for its audience, including: panel discussions, exhibitions, parties, an award show and a family-friendly block party.

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

#BrownvilleStratupFund $5000 #Pitch #Competition  #Hyperlocal  #Diversity #Neighborhood #startupfund | Deadline October 30th | Pitch November 13 

$5000 with a business that has been prepped can go a long way. I intend to support this but there is a reason pitches are held after prep.
The question is
- Do I compete ...  there is one idea that will serve this extremely well. Plus I really love hacks and pitching competitions...
- Do I Prep a group  Local Business development  is what we specialize in ... we're already doing this and have a number of businesses we can work with. 
or
- Do I offer official support via NYukCo as an event sponsor... It's time to step up our visibility...
All thre options will answer our "WHY", which makes this a tough  decision.  

BTW we're meeting AT Stratosphere Studios Cafe Lounge, 227 Utica Avenue at 6pm today (oct 14th) we go live at 7pm
for part 2 the conversation on Financial support for neighborhood projects -(see part 1 at www.NyukCo.com/findingfunding ;). I'll be adding this to the agenda.

Public Art Private Controversy- The "white washing" of Brand Brooklyn

Public Art  Private Controversy- The "white washing" of Brand Brooklyn | Brooklyn By Design | Scoop.it
What goes together better than ice cream, sunshine and neighborhood camaraderie? Ice cream, sunshine, neighborhood camaraderie and public art, that's what. Thanks to Mike Perry -- the illustrator extraordinaire
Bonnie Sandy's insight:

It was not  called Graffiti but public art,and that was  the first  indication that there was an  issue.  The sharp contrast between the  article and the comments- tell a lot about the present  undercurrents - 
FROM THE COMMENTS "It's disgraceful that you do the developer's p.r. for them. First, your facts wrong -- Frank Gehry did not oversee the whole project. He was used as a trendy prestige element to sell it to the city's power brokers. Gehry was crass and his designs were ridiculed. He once infamously said he looked forward to building a neighborhood where none existed. This came as news to thousands who lived and worked there. Most are now gone, the victims of misused eminent domain. These trite, happy murals and the artists who ignore the project's destructiveness are very much the new Brooklyn. Displacing people, refusing to provide low-income housing per years of promises, and adding to the Brooklyn brand without providing things Brooklynites clamor for are all business as usual for the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park project. Shame on you, Katherine Brooks, for being a cog in Forest City's onerous machine."
