Project Details

Art From the Streets has a long history of working with leading Austin creatives from EnviroMedia, BuzzPR, Enfatico, GSD&M and Dell, who produced ADDY award-winning work for the homeless artists that we serve. We're seeking account service and creative partners to continue that storied tradition by helping us promote our 21st Annual Show and Sale November 9 & 10 at the Austin Convention Center through development and implementation of an advertising campaign including: branding through graphic design and copy-writing for postcards, print ads, flyers, calendars, and for use by the PR and Interactive Campaign teams. Coordinate and attend advertising team meetings as needed depending on timeline/schedules to maintain communication/activity, and attend monthly meetings with PR and Interactive Campaign teams as necessary. The mission of Art From the Streets is to provide a safe and encouraging environment where the positive spirit of homeless people is nurtured through artistic expression, and to provide them with a source of pride and income through the sale of their work. We carry out this mission by sponsoring twice weekly open studio art classes for people who are homeless or formerly homeless, and producing an annual show and sale of the resulting work where the artists keep the proceeds. In the past 20 years the show has produced art sales of more than $800,000 which has gone directly to the people who created the art. The money has rented apartments, purchased cars and vans, clothing, food, a room for the night. It has made a difference.

ACCOUNTANT/BOOKKEEPER TO CONSULT AND ADVISE ON EXISTING FINANCIAL REPORTS AND PROCESSES. for Austin Shambhala Meditation Center

( Accounting Advice )

Project Details

The Meditation Center has one person who is responsible for daily bookkeeping and producing quarterly financial reports, and one additional person (whom I'll refer to as Finance Mgr) who is responsible for drafting and managing the budget, and communicating with the Center's Council about the Center's finances. For the past two years, an experienced volunteer bookkeeper has been working with them, setting up proper financial reports and guiding them through the process of producing these reports as well as assisting with the budgeting process. This person needs to step down, but feels that professional bookkeeping assistance is still needed in order for the Center to be more confident where the finances are concerned.
