Mary at theodore.design offered the great idea of making a short description, an “elevator pitch,” that would quickly grab attention.
SO HERE IT IS:
I have a dream for a place that’s three things in one. One part is fun hands-on learning. The second is physical activity for people who want to try something different from competitive sports and repetitive exercises. The third part is about spiritual and moral growth, understanding, and service. I am sending detailed information out in the hope that some person, business, non-profit, or city hall will catch the vision and make it real. If anyone nearby wants to do this with my help, I can provide a number of materials as well as ideas and presentations.
Elevator Pitch Breakdown
The Dreamer’s Workshop
Here’s the elevator pitch for the first part. I like to call it The Dreamer’s Workshop. The idea is to go beyond “hands-on” museums and activities at libraries. It would have books and materials for amateur science experiments, arts (including music), and crafts. Combining these activities would be encouraged. It would also have focus groups such as a “Mad Scientist” club and music groups.
The Fantasy Heroes Training Center
The elevator pitch for the physical training part goes like this: Everybody needs to exercise, but many people aren’t happy with the major ways we have now. This center would offer fun, imaginative, new and different ways to exercise. Pretending to be a hero is fun and imaginative, and ties in to the third part.
The Onward and Upward Club
The Onward and Upward Club is what ties everything together. Mental and physical growth are pointless unless they are used for good, to help others. This third part of the center would focus on the shared beliefs about what is good, and encourage positive conversations about our differences. It would provide information and organization to help with many different needs in the community.
