S.W.O.T. Presentation Transcript

  • 1. S.W.O.T. Alexis Rourk & Megan Hummell With Weeksville Society
  • 2. Strengths
    • Alexis & Megan:
    • Drawing, Printmaking (silk screen, wood block, etc.), Scuplture, Sewing and some Photography.
    • Weeksville:
    • Connections with schools (P.S. 243, H.S. for Public Service, Cobble Hill School and Boy & Girls H.S.).
    • Connection with Brooklyn Historical Society, farmer's market and Groundswell.
    • Existing annual programs (i.e. Family Day August 2010).
    • Consistent/ sufficient funding
    • Existing space
    • Existing regular workshops
  • 3. Weaknesses
    • Visibility; within community, mostly limited to elementary school field trips and school programs.
    • Conditions of surrounding neighborhood (lack of retail, disinvestment in community).
  • 4. Opportunities
    • Connection to past and present domestic life.
    • “ Living history" a chance to engage community in unique way.
    • New building and performance space coming soon.
    • Unique/new/different historical perspective than usual (Civil War or Civil rights).
    • Unique story to share on how African Americans contributed at that time period to Brooklyn.
    • Identity still exists in terms of continuing (yet smaller) neighborhood of same name.
    • Celebration of diversity of previous/original community as theme and connection to today.
  • 5. Threats
    • We could not think of any threats to Weeksville at this time.
