Background: Hello!
My name is Gillian, and I’m sending this form after getting to meet Tina today at the Big Crafty. The offer of getting involved as an artist vending at the upcoming pride event was one that sounded super exciting for me- and so I wanted to pass on my information here. Obviously my contact info is included in this form, but in addition, I wanted to include links to my website and art presence online (My Instagram has many more pieces than my website currently, so you’ll likely find different stuff on each). Anyways, like I mentioned in getting to chat in person, my work is a variety of mixed media goodness centered primarily around liberation and community. I am a white trans/ non-binary person myself, so this means working to advocate for queer communities from lived experience and for BIPOC, latinx, immigrant, disability, and indigenous groups through solidarity work. Getting to vend would be a great opportunity for me to share my art in an effort to help fundraise for local mutual aid projects and rent support groups I am a part of as part of that solidarity work- so if it does shape up that there would be booth space, I would be very interested in being a part of it!

and if this message finds its way back to Tina, thanks again for chatting today, enjoyed getting to meet you and see you out in the community.

Love and power to you all

Phone: (850) 530-2038 | City/ST/Zip: Canton North Carolina 28716

Interests: The Oral History program and advocacy interest me. Also, the possibility of working with fundraising such as offering community style acupuncture at an event for donation prices with all donations going to Blue Ridge Pride.

Background: I am looking for ways to connect with the local community and be of service. The concept of collecting an oral history of preserve experiences sounds wonderful, adding a depth to history. I have a background in mental health (Licensed Mental Health Clinician in the state of Florida) and am a Licensed Acupuncturist in the state of NC. Putting what skills I can offer to help with fundraising makes sense to me, though I am highly open to suggestions, recommendations, and the needs of Blue Ridge Pride to figure out what the best fit or greatest need with volunteering may be. Best way to reach me would be my cellphone at (850) 530-2038 or my e-mail at biff.todd@gmail.com. Anytime from 9:30am until 6:30pm Monday through Saturday typically works, though my schedule may fluctuate depending on appointments, etc. (and occasionally the mountains hold my calls, so please feel free to leave a voicemail and the best time to call back if reaching out by phone)

Interests: Festival / Community Events |Community Service |

Background: For the People Academy is a high level skills training business based in Asheville. We teach classes ranging from Red Cross First-Aid to primitive survival with the goal of empowering heroes in our own communities. In an industry that is often inaccessible, our focus is creating a safe learning environment specifically for queer folks and POC.

We'd like to host a free class with Blue Ridge Pride open to community members and volunteers. We can design a class specifically around community needs/ what you think would best serve the community. You can see more of what we teach and who we are on our website ftpacademy.org or email with any questions.

Thanks so much!

Siljoy Maurer

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
