Notes from Susanna

If we clean up the blurb I sent out earlier then she will help us look for other free spaces. Things she would like addressed:
  • Make it clear that all creative people are invited.
  • Parents or chaperones can bring kids, Though not a place to babysit.

She would like to receive the update on the third.
