Soon we were in a new space, a fantastic loft space in a place at the time called Inside the Bungalow- a wonderful coffee house/wedding venue. It was an embarrassment of riches to be in such a cool space- if you dig through the BC Facebook Page you can see some of the pictures.
Not long after our landlords finally deservedly chose to retire and sell the property, we were offered the opportunity to be in the space we are in now, which is equally special to be a part of the Mesa Community College Downtown Mesa Campus.
The point is, if you count Bob's previous ownership of The Anthology Café in DT Mesa in 2002, all the poetry slams and other activities (parts of Sacrifice & all of Yellowstone Sunset were filmed in DT Mesa) that have happened, we've been engaged in the Downtown Community for close to 20 years.
Which is what made ASU's arrival so exciting
The Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts is building a $73 million dollar asset promoting the media arts. Almost literally in front of our doorstep.
Media. Production. Teaching storytellers of the future. An existing company with a big catalogue of compelling, award winning stories?
Is it dawning on you yet?
The announcement for the facility was when The Pitch was born, an Advisory Committee was established, and the planning began. We are not asking for investment because we are destitute and need money. We are asking for investment because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity that we believe we can capitalize on, and contribute to.
It would be a great story for ASU to talk about how they partnered with an existing media presence in Mesa, one of the largest independent publishers in the Southwest. For us, it puts world class talent and resources at our fingertips.
The facility is schedule to open in 2022, and we have A LOT of work to do ourselves to be ready. That is what the Brick Cave Pitch is about. We have the plan. We have the desire. We have the Content.
Now we just need to execute, and we need your help.
