Arts Community Systems is essentially a non profit. I tried to set it up as a “for profit” in name (LLC) but soon realized that I’m not interested in becoming wealthy, but in helping people. Arts community was set up with the idea of figuring a way to connect people to art and each other and is here to help. Therefore the projects I’m managing are all related to helping people and to efforts I care about.
Current projects include:
- Supporting the GABIDDC Sustainable development project
- Supporting the efforts of Joe Orlow’s projects
Past contracts included an effort to market goats milk, which I found I didn’t have the resources to make successful. Goats milk proper is not marketable due to the high cost in the United States. A lot of people love it, but not at the price it is marketed it. Cows milk is subsidized, goats milk is not. Among immigrants it has a reputation for being cheap and so there is sticker shock when people see it in a store. Some would buy it anyway. If it can be sold with cheese it is more successful. Anyone wishing to market goats milk needs to also be marketing Goats cheese, yogurt and other products. I still have marketing material on the subject if anyone wants to pick up where I left off.
