That is, business as the way we dream it.. Oh, yes. Allied Media Project has started their third season of Detroit Future Media program, training Detroit artists, entrepreneurs and educators in digital media skills. We are proud to be a part of their entrepreneurship program, making connections, delving into the whys and hows of our ideal socially and environmentally conscious business model, looking for our dream of being a sustainable, supportive, creative and all the way around awesome collective that can support itself and become a strong supportive presence in our community.
We keep our eyes on March as our move in month!
As we are mapping out our Shop while we’re waiting for CCNDC‘s construction to be completed so we can start moving, we’re finding good signs everywhere.
Look what’s used for a doorstop at CCNDC!
We’ve also found a small storage room right off the Shop room that has a tile floor, a drain in the middle and the water lines on the wall ready to tap into. Wash out room!
On December 1st and 2nd at the Masonic Temple, OPS will join 99 other local vendors who make their own products, and have a merry ole’ time helping our friends and fellow DIY lovers finding Christmas presents , and feast their eyes on luscious ink on paper and fabric. Admission to the event is $1.
Come out and see us at our first collective sale as The Ocelot Print Shop, and support local makers with your holiday shopping dollars.
Coming soon: samples will trickle in on the blog from the many things we’ll have available at DUCF, as well as introductions to our contributing members.
We are getting some encouraging responses to Ocelot on the Start Garden website.
Seems like people are getting the idea about working together instead of against each other.
One more day for a vote for us!
