ARTS EXPOSURE

Make-and-Take

Get your organization noticed

Posted

Silver City MainStreet/Arts & Cultural District is partnering with the Future Forge and various community groups to offer an arts and cultural experience to residents of Grant County.

The Future Forge has offered space for a table at the Maker’s Market, held May through October on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Main Street Plaza in downtown Silver City. This table can be used to offer free, family-oriented activities for residents of Grant County. Make-and-Takes will be held on the second Saturday of each month of the Maker’s Market.

The purpose is to increase engagement in downtown via an arts and cultural experience that’s targeted to youth and families. Possible experiences can be easy Make-and-Take activities like making a bookmark, bracelet or making a seed bomb. Silver City MainStreet offers a small stipend for supplies in addition to a table, chairs and an umbrella to use.

This activity gives you the opportunity to engage and educate residents about your organization in a fun way and to promote any upcoming events you may be planning. Once a calendar of experiences is scheduled, Silver City MainStreet will publicize your experience.

Silver City MainStreet is seeking organizations to provide Make-and-Take activities. Anyone interested in participating can contact Charmeine@silvercitymainstreet.com or call 575-534-1700.
