So I’ve been the Development Coordinator at the Sanctuary for about three weeks now through the Digital Media Arts Service Corp Program. It is a part of the larger AmeriCorps program, but focuses on empowering people through technology. After so many years of being a volunteer here, it is great to be at the Sanctuary full time. Volunteering and working with so many of you has been a great experience. I’ve learned so much, and I am really excited to be able to increase my participation in the Sanctuary.
I remember when I decided to get involved with the Sanctuary, about five years ago now. I was a graduate student at the University at Albany and saw Hudson Mohawk Independent Media present “Indy Media in A Time of War.” I signed up for the mailing list and have been coming back ever since.
This year, I’m going to help build the financial stability of the Sanctuary and help ensure its place in the community for many years to come.
