Event ideas

From AwesomeWiki

Overarching themes:

It's more work to do events that are only for the Awesome Foundation. It's easier to do events that are co-branded (especially people who already have an audience and a format).

Give yourself enough time to promote things.

Why do you have events? Publicizing the Awesome Foundation or publicizing the grantee? Or replicating by having ideas at the event? Getting more applications.

Doing things to drag people out. Very pro free beer.

Recruiting trustees who have resources like connections to press/event space.

Ideas: Art Galleries, farmers markets, museums,

What's the personality of an event?

Talk to Keith about awesome camp.

Documenting events wiki - a wiki with event ideas, a page per event, collateral (posters), who came, where it was held.

International Awesome Day City Day

Promoting other awesome events, so when you do have an event everyone else promotes yours.

If moving venues, you can do promotion beforehand. Partnering with vendors to get free frozen yogurt.

What if you pay one of the trustees to plan?

Boston doubled because there was enough to support.

Membership program? "Patron of Awesome" - Awesome Tax? Awesome member card. Awesome businesses that give a discount.

Sydney- Awesome Soup (partnered with Pausible) and sold tickets to an ideas festival and selected grants and served soup. Sunday soup network.

awesome bank accounts?

More notes from Greg!
