From its founding in 1972 to its work today, PFLAG’s membership of LGBTQ people, families, and allies have united in love, embracing each other and people whose communities are often marginalized, erased or ignored.

PFLAG reaffirms that unity and inclusion and a shared commitment to human dignity of all people are critical to fight discrimination and bigotry in any form so that all families can live free of fear. We commit to fight for fairness inclusive of people’s sex, race, ethnicity, national origin, socioeconomic position, religion, level of mental or physical ability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or any other perceived or actual characteristic.

PFLAG also reaffirms its commitment to this goal which requires us to learn to be the allies that communities need. We commit to better educate ourselves, listen to others, and engage in critical conversations, ensuring that we model the inclusive behavior we wish to see in the world.

We will be more inclusive allies to create space for voices that might not otherwise be heard and amplify personal stories so that the storytellers are visible. We will listen attentively and actively, and speak out with due diligence and clear conviction, across all barriers and borders, to ensure that all people are included, respected, and treated equally.

The PfCA is focused on building a stronger community and a stronger community is supported by strong businesses. Whether you look at our programs to train local youth  in our workforce or advocating for more affordable housing, the PfCA wants to help create stronger businesses in Chaffee County!

The PfCA Classroom is located at Sellars Project Space @ Seasons Cafe, 300 West Sackett Avenue in Downtown Salida, Colorado.

Earlier this year we began working with local marketing extraordinaire, Monica Gutierrez of Mariposa Marketing (read more about her below), to help create a series of much needed classes that not only fit your schedule, your time constraints, and your pocketbook but teaches you useful and actionable methods to market your business.

Discounts are available for early-bird registration, to Salida Business Alliance members ($50 off), Chamber of Commerce members ($50), and multiple-class registrations (take all 3 and save). And if it's still out of your budget, apply for one of our PfCA Community Grants. We want to be sure that you have access to the tips, tools, and knowledge to make your business stronger.

This 3-session series runs three consecutive Wednesdays: January 24th through February 7th from 5 - 7 p.m. with light refreshments provided. The focus is to give you the knowledge of where to invest your marketing dollars (even if they're limited), how to find the marketing options that are right for you, when to alter or restart your marketing approaches, and how to do it all consistently.

You will learn:

  • Basic steps to building a strong marketing foundation.

  • Effective social media tips and techniques for small businesses.

  • How to properly use events to gain exposure and sales.

  • Creative promotion strategies for event attendance, brand exposure, audience engagement and sales.

  • Tips and techniques to stand out in a tourism economy, even during shoulder season.

  • How to setup and execute a basic Facebook Advertising campaign that gets results.

  • Actionable marketing tips you can apply to your business’s marketing strategy today.

  • How to make smart marketing decisions that increase your return on investment.

Have questions? Ask the instructor directly!

A strong marketing foundation is the cornerstone for a new or growing business. This workshop series will help you create this foundation and build upon it with tangible strategies and techniques tailored for your business’s needs.  You will walk away knowing how to properly allocate your marketing dollars to make sure your business actually grows this year!

Art at the Twitchell: Folded Mountains 2

CANCELLED

Due to transportation issues the artist will not be present for the closing reception and therefore we are cancelling the event. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Mather_AVHS_Fundraiser_Poster_FINAL.jpg

Sellars Project Space is proud to present the new work of artist Laurel McMechan in an exhibition titled, Folded Mountains No. 2. This exhibition opens with a reception for the artist and in conjunction with Salida's city-wide Salida Art Walk, on Saturday, June 24th from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. This exhibition can be viewed through July 21st, 2017 at 101 North F Street, upstairs in the historic Twitchell Building. Elevator access available through the alley.

 

McMechan's artistic process is a mixture of abstraction and working from observation. Each piece is a painted and drawn invented landscape which explores the idea of place.  The natural and built environments we inhabit are both physical and psychological territories, made from strata of perception, history, culture and personal memory.  McMechan approaches the subject through the lens of collage and cubist strategies. The act of cutting out one image and juxtaposing it with another is a visceral and direct way of making new visual meaning. McMechan's work is inspired by a simultaneous experience of the worlds we make inside our heads and exterior physical world and community we occupy with our bodies.

Sellars Project Space is located in Colorado's first Creative District in the heart of the largest Historic District. For more information visit goPfCA.com/folded-mountains for more information.

This exhibition is sponsored by Sellars Project Space's Partnership for Community Action (PfCA) Program. Program supporters First Street Flooring on Third, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Mike's Garage and Nature's Medicine support a variety of community building projects and programs.
