Good evening, I live in the neighborhood and would like to volunteer for the festival. Keep me posted if you need me! ❤️
AJ - I'm with Host of Sparrows Aerial Circus just down the street (I work with Heather). We have a show that day at Dogtown Dance Theatre, and it seems like a great opportunity to do a little cross-promotion... Would it be possible for us to tie the show in with the festival, since it's in Manchester and close by? We could certainly do some website promotion of the project and have fliers at some of our gigs in the mean time...
