Yay Durham!

We have a sweet looking potential space on Mangum st. We are waiting for the guy to get back from Miami so that we can move on it. It's our hope that once we have an actual location, we will be able to start organizing ways that people can help out with the center. We talked about a painting /decorating party. . .Its going to be awesome.

We've also been talking to people about the possibility of renting space out for bands to practice, and for people to have meetings.

BCHQ Mission Statement

Hey all. . .

Here is the letter we recently sent out that includes our mission statement etc:

Dear Friends, Family, and Family Friends,

I am writing to share with you the exciting news that Bull City Headquarters, the new nonprofit arts venue and community center, will open in Downtown Durham in February, 2007!

Bull City Headquarters will be a drug and alcohol-free community space intent on facilitating creative expression, providing educational resources, and coordinating public workshops. Our mission is to create an opportunity to bring together our neighborhoods through events such as public lectures, lending libraries, and free classes; foster creative expression including but not limited to performance and visual arts, musical events, and gallery exhibitions; and offer public service through an organized meeting space, a bike co-op, and a resource center.

In preparation for the grand opening of Bull City Headquarters, we are building a contact list of people in the community who may be interested in becoming involved with this project. If you are interested in receiving updates and news about BCHQ, please send a short response to this email. We would also greatly appreciate it if you would forward this message to other people or organizations that may be as excited about this new space as we are!

Thanks so much for your participation!
