What We Need & What You Get
- PIMOCA: is an entirely self sustaining business model so once the initial funds for the campus have been raised we generate our own operating budget annually through all of the action on campus. (Conversation drives Commerce!)
- I is for Interactive. This means we don’t have to invent the wheel. We have letters of intent from many major local art organizations saying they will all participate in PIMOCA financially and physically. We just are uniting the resources to create a centralized community space for them to INTERACT.
- $360,000 breaks down to 120k per year for three years create PIMOCA digitally, allow us to apply for grants, do community studies, and to pursue a physical space, like the Divine Lorraine.
- Philly gets: JOBS, a more stable and sustainable future for the Local Arts Market, Avenue of the Arts North on Broad Street, Local and International Art Shows, a better outlook for its 6th most violent neighborhood without just “gentrifying” it, an instant TRIPLING of the Museum Mile making it the Museum Triangle, and an amazing opportunity to return arts education to the local elementary and high schools.
