The Social Enterprise VISTA member will develop and implement a marketing and social media strategy for Blues City Cultural Center (BCCC) and SEW MUCH LOVE (social enterprise). The VISTA will develop, launch, and manage a diverse revenue stream, curriculum, and social media for the overall organization with the focus on Sew Much Love. The social enterprise component introduces homeless women to the arts whereby they can receive income from the creation of marketable handcrafted artworks.
The expected outcome is for the women to gain and increase in income and understand the relationship between the arts and entrepreneurship. Lead targeted promotion plans, regular evaluation of volunteer and donation practices, and partnership management. Since the women live in homeless shelters throughout the Memphis area, or have transitioned to subsidized housing, they are regarded as economically disadvantaged and live below the poverty level.
