Funding the Arts through Thrift
Date: Thursday – October, 26 2017 Time: 1:15pm - 2:45pm
Room: 401 Track: Community Development
Over the course of 10 years, Park Avenue Thrift in Enid has donated over $2,350,000 to the arts, education, and broad community quality of life, including many community events and projects. A model for sustainability, the thrift store has helped citizens transform their surplus of stuff into financial support for the arts. The thrift store includes a gallery and events that feature Enid’s emerging artists. Founders of Park Avenue Thrift will share organizational strategies for those interested in establishing a similar business model. Participants will have the option to tour Park Avenue Thrift right after the session adjourns.
