We were fortunate this season to establish a relationship with the Arts & Business Council of Chicago (ABC) and to be paired by them with Jeanne C Busch and Robin Schuette, two outstanding members of ABC’s Business Volunteers for the Arts (BVA) program. With their guidance and encouragement, we spent a full day in January focused on our strategic direction. We learned about one another, our collective herstory, and some of our dreams for the future—quite appropriately following our Wildest Dreams concert.
We thank Jeanne, Robin, and the Arts & Business Council of Chicago for the 73 hours of volunteer consulting time, valued at nearly $11,000! We’ll be continuing to explore and grow from the work we started this season.
The Arts & Business Council’s consulting services, educational workshops, and board training and matching program are designed to help Chicago-area nonprofit arts organizations address managerial and organizational capacity needs. Artemis Singers is a 501(c)3 organization and is therefore eligible for this assistance.
We’re dancing our feet off this season, between social activities at the International Women’s Day Dance, the DOWS Dance, and so many of our friends mysteriously all getting married the same year . . . so we’ll be all warmed up for the Artemis Singers PROUD TO BE . . . ME! Concert & Dance, to celebrate Chicago Pride in June.
We’re going to put on PROUD TO BE . . . ME! twice!! On Saturday, June 6, we’ll be celebrating at Broadway United Methodist in Lakeview, and the following Saturday, June 13, we’ll head south to Beverly Unitarian Church. Come join us in one of our familiar venues–or venture with us to a new and lovely spot–or both!
Check our Events page for more details.
Or go ahead and buy your tickets now for Lakeview or for Beverly.
Join us for HamBingo–that’s Bingo Hamburger Mary’s style–this Sunday at 8:00 pm in Andersonville. $15 for 10 games–and it’s really fun!! You can buy more cards for more chances to win, as many as you can keep track of. Cash only for games.
Games start at 8. Plan to arrive earlier if you want to eat (yum!) and to get a seat.
The funds raised from Bingo card sales, plus drink specials and special shots, benefit Artemis Singers, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Hamburger Mary’s, 5400 N. Clark St., Chicago.
