NOTICE: Change in Schedule

MAMA will meet only on Mondays in August

As the summer winds down, we’ve decided to take the month “easy” to accommodate the back-to-school madness, do some redecorating after the missionaries move out, and also get moving on some much needed strategic planning.  What does this mean? For starters, we’ll only be meeting on Mondays this month.  If you normally join as a co-op member, dues will be $20 and only one childcare shift. 

It also means that we’ll be ready to go in September, full steam ahead.  We are thrilled that we’ve hit the 6 month mark at MAMA and have that critical proof of concept phase under our belt.  We’ll keep you posted as we undertake this new planning initiative and will also organize a fun cocktails + idea and brainstorming meet up soon (thanks, Natalie Martinez, for the fantastic idea!) . 

In the meantime, consider getting involved in the many activities we have going on outside of our workdays at Martha Brown  We’ll be sponsoring a table at The Big Latch On – Intown event and could use two volunteers to help staff the table. You can read more about what they are doing here

Date: August 3rd, 2013
Time: 10:00am – Noon

Firefly Studio
1026 Atlanta Ave
Decatur, GA 30030

We are also planning our second group show.  Kavarna Coffee Shop in Oakhurst will show our work during the month of October followed by a closing reception at the end of the month.  This is a great opportunity to get involved in the collective and push your creativity to new levels.  Creators, makers and artists of all mediums and experience levels are encouraged to participate.  Please let us know, via email or in person, if you’d like to participate and we’ll send you more details as they become available. 

Hope to see you soon!

Betsy and Melanie
