LEARNtheBrand IMPACT APPAREL MOVED ON TO THE FINAL ROUND FOR THE IDEA CAFE 20TH ANNIVERSARY GRANT!
Due to your votes, we are now 1 of 10 finalists in the Finalists Voting Round for the Idea Cafe 20th Anniversary Grant! Click on the link and vote today! You can only vote ONCE! The Finalists Voting Round will run from February 29, 2016-March 29, 2016.
The business with the most votes will receive $1000.00! If awarded the Idea Café Small Business grant, Learning Dimensions/LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel would like to use the money to kick off a community engagement activity scheduled to take place during Summer 2016. Learning Dimensions and LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel will transform a public plaza in Chicago into a learning focused pop up shop. In this space, we will not only vend LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel items, but invite visitors to participate in learning experiences to make the notion of meaningful learning more personal and enriching to potential shop visitors. Some proposed scheduled activities may include seminars, film screenings and post-film discussions, guest speakers, how-to sessions and other learning-focused activities.
A portion of the grant money will be used to rent a prefabricated micro retail kiosk installed in a high volume public space to provide a short-term pop up retail space called Boombox. Boombox combines features of pop-up shops and festival booths. Boombox has partnered with the City of Chicago Activate! Initiative, in which the goal is to ‘transform underutilized public plazas into positive catalysts.’ Being part of such an initiative is a great desire for Learning Dimensions/LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel’s community engagement goal.
Thank you for your vote and believing in Learning Dimensions/LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel. Feel free to share this blog post to your networks.
