ONLINE PRESENTATIONS AND EXHIBITS
Just as in the rest of the world, the pandemic has clipped our wings, but as long as the internet works, Jeanne is available for online presentations, complete with stories, history, educational information, photos of quilts, and answers to questions. This project touches many areas, and Jeanne speaks to college and university classes in art, history, education, special education, and other interested departments on topics such as creativity, leading a worldwide organization, art and business, history, and more. She also enjoys showing quilts and telling stories to quilt guilds, folks on art and quilting retreats, and church groups. She speaks to students in grades 5 and above about the project, often focusing on bullying. And as if all that isn’t enough, she always welcomes inquiries, ideas, and suggestions. Fee for 30-60 minute virtual presentation – $130.00. All monies go directly to The 70273 Project. These quilts need to be shown, and these stories need to be told – that’s why we keep the fee reasonably priced. If your organization needs to talk about giving more (because remember: all money goes directly into The 70273 Project’s account) or if you need to talk about a reduced fee,
let us know. Why don’t you click here and reach out right now – before you forget it – and let’s talk about a presentation for your group?
SPONSORSHIP OF ONLINE PRESENTATIONS AND EXHIBITS
Like the rest of the world, the pandemic has clipped our wings, but the internet still works, so as you just read, Jeanne is offering online presentations. These stories must be told. This atrocity must not be forgotten. We must shape a different future. If you, your organization, church, school, family, or business is interested in and willing to sponsor virtual presentations for colleges, universities, schools, and other groups, let me know.
HOW WILL THE MONEY BE SPENT?
Oh, let me count the ways. In addition to the usual and customary business expenses, your money will pay for . . .
~ transit and shipping supplies to transport the quilts around the world to tell their stories
~ special boxes made to protect the quilts as they travel
~ housing the quilts (around 850 of them as of October 2019) in a climate-controlled facility
~ shelves, hangers, other supplies needed to store quilts
~ conservation supplies to extend the lifespan of the quilts
~ development of an online searchable database that will enable people to find their names (unless they elected to remain anonymous), which quilts their blocks are in, and where in the world those quilts are on any given day
~ a QR code for each quilt that, when scanned, will whisk the viewer to a place where they will be treated to a multi-media treasure trove of information, stories (audible and written), and photos about that quilt
~ development of an audio guide for each quilt that can accompany the quilts when they go on exhibit
~ and much, much more.
