AGGGGHGHGGHG It’s been so long since I last blogged, and so much has happened, so I’m going to try to “quickly” recap on everything.
Last Thursday ID went to Thrive. Thrive is a design and innovation consultancy that collaborates with leading companies to create new products and experiences that resonate with customers, strengthen brands, and improve market share. We went there to talk about establishing a partnership between Thrive and ID (and hopefully broadening to more of MVPS). We had a great meeting and brainstormed about HMW make Atlanta a national guide for changing people’s perspective on education and students, and HMW create a 4 way collaboration (MVPS, Thrive, business, and users), and HMW impact the community. We have started a basecamp with them and our working on how to continue those connections, but not much has happened besides that so far.
Then I WAS IN DISNEY ALL WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was fantastic!!!!!!! Getting to work with the special conductor and play Disney songs was amazing!!!! The song we recorded and set to animation was “I See the Light” from Tangled and we were the first band to have ever played it, and it was so cool! I also grew decently close to some of the middle schoolers, they are pretty cool too. It made me realize just how disconnected even the people on one campus can be, and we are a small school!
Non of them had any idea about what ID is, and it just furthered my thinking about how people in the high school don’t even know what ID is. How can we share our story? This question has constantly been on my mind and I just don’t know how to answer it. So far the information we share is through various writing formats, but it really only gets shared to those who look to find out more. How do we share what we do to people who aren’t curious enough to seek out information on their own?
