Dear friends of Story Planet,
As we navigate the ups and downs of the funding landscape we have decided to look at the model we currently have and adapt it. While our social enterprise (formerly known as the ITA) has been an amazing community hub, it has not been financially viable. We have let the espresso machine go and are operating it, for the next little while, as a pay-what-you-can, serve-yourself community lounge. We’ve been surprised by the incredibly warm reception to this slightly kooky idea!
Lift Off, our after school program, continues through to the end of this term, April 14th. Storymakers will continue as funding allows. We will decide at the end of April whether to keep the doors to the space open, or move to a more nimble operation where we continue to do workshops in schools and community centres but not in our own space.
If you have any questions, please send an email to me, Liz, at firstname.lastname@example.org
The winds of Jupiter are blowing in an interesting way!
Yours in story,
