Muses vol. 1 color editions
Did anyone get a copy of Muses vol. 1 at the last show?
FAA Muses will be printing off color copies tomorrow, so if you missed it or if you got a copy and liked it, be sure to keep an eye out for them around town this week and pick one up!
There’ll only be 15 first prints, get your hands on one!
We’ll make an announcement once they are available with a list of places they can be found. Stay tuned!
EDIT: For those who don’t know, Muses is a literary and visual arts zine put together by one of our amazing volunteers, Simon Hu (simxhu.tumblr.com).
It’s National Volunteer Week
Yesterday marked the first day of National Volunteer Week, and as an organization that has survived solely through the work of volunteers for so many years, we understand the incredible value of an individual giving their time to a cause they believe in.
We’d like to thank everyone who has volunteered with us over the years, every person who’s taken money at the door for a show, who’s sat in the sound booth, who’s carried equipment, who’s put up posters, who’s set up an art installation, who’s glued together CD cases for a Scissors & Tape release, who’s manned the snack and merch tables, who’s ran the stage lights, who’s designed a flyer, who’s taught at a workshop, who’s managed a show, who’s told their friends and family about FAA and our mission, and anyone who has helped us over the years to further our goals of providing accessible arts programming and a means to increase youth-empowerment and youth-leadership in our community.
You have all made it possible for us to be where we are today, and will continue to be the force that allows us to grow and develop as we navigate 2013.
