16 Heads > 1

November 9, 2009

In what can only be described as a formidable success, roughly 16 heads (and their requisite 16 bodies) met at Hyde Park Half earlier today for the second official planning meeting.  All signs point to Hyde Park Half becoming a fully functional member of the community in record time.  Of interest, these ideas were discussed:

  • the accumulation of tutors
  • (break)dance classes
  • discount show prices for Hyde Park Half members
  • free show entrance for all Inglewood residents
  • funk, reggae, and rap bands
  • the Pico Youth Center and Youth Justice League of Inglewood
  • our two donated computers
  • sound permits

The current plan envisions Hyde Park Half operating as a tutoring center Monday through Friday from 2pm – 6pm.  From 6pm – 9pm, Hyde Park Half will be a committed space for artistic instruction or expression.  Live performances will take place on Fridays and Saturdays.

Step one is our application to become a nonprofit entity.  We’ve ascertained a lawyer pro bono who has already begun the process for us.  Pending nonprofit certification, Hyde Park Half will apply for various grants to ensure the economic prosperity of the project.

Thank you to everyone that attended.  To all that didn’t, please know that you are kindly welcome to the next planning meeting on Sunday November 22 at 11am.  Until that time, please peruse this site and send in a request to be a tutor.
