BUILDING A COMMUNITY

We've always said that Kalamadoodle was created for the people, by the people. That will never change. The goal of this project is to build a community that encourages and inspires one another, and to give others the resources and tools they need to chase their own creative pursuits. A monthly drink and draw is incredibly fun, but it is my hope that the connections people make through this platform will lead to something much greater.

A big piece of that puzzle is establishing a strong digital community that keeps the conversation going between events. Sharing our own personal stories, projects, and interests. Opening ourselves up to one another, and creating a space that is both honest and transparent.

I often battle with what, and how much, I should share with the Kalamadoodle audience. My greatest fear is being accused of using this platform as a means of selfish gain. I'm incredibly proud of this little world we've created together, and I would be devastated if people felt it was overshadowed or tainted by my voice.

But I believe there is great benefit in telling stories. Tales shared from the past can influence the future, and I believe it is a moral obligation to use our wisdom for good. Passing off lessons and consuming knowledge are two of the best and most inexpensive ways to improve chances of happiness and success in this world.

So changes are coming. Conversations are starting. And our community is growing. In the coming months you're going to learn more about the past, present, and future of the people who work hard to make Kalamadoodle happen; and we hope to learn more about you. Together we're building a community that is truly special and it's time to create and discover more.

Yours,

Mike
