STORAGE: Dear Friends - Do you have a storage space? What would it take in order for The MAMMOTH to earn your storage business? Many of the storage facilities in Louisville are corporate chains. We have two floors in The MAMMOTH that are locked down and dedicated to storage. Letting us earn your business will help to generate extra funds to put in bathrooms, improve the event space, and start to build studios for artists. We can handle big and small storage needs, residential and commercial. Please spread the word! We are depending on our strong social network, and we are willing to work hard to provide excellent service. Contact for quotes! =)
If you or someone you know would like to support the progress at the MAMMOTH by moving your storage to our space, please get in touch by email - firstname.lastname@example.org Here's our beautiful web-sized brochure:
Why we're doing this:
>Besides needing large studio spaces near our living space, and wanting a community of people to work around, we recognize that there's a problem with the fact that Louisville has very little in the way of artists run warehouse space. We know other people also think that
Louisville needs a place for new possibilities. This is an opportunity for people with dreams, skills and energy to come together and make something as a community. Imagine another local art cooperative/ more art studios/ open
meeting spaces/ an installation space and art gallery/
live/work spaces/ an independent media center/ band practice spaces/a great live music venue/ a truly unique film viewing space/ a recording studio/ an
underground local music.art museum/ more community gardens and green space/ sculpture gardens/and who knows what else? Access to an open workable, community run space will give artists and other creatives
an opportunity to invest in themselves by having the choice to either rent or (eventually) purchase the space
they work in year after year, while themselves being able to interact with other artists and like-minded people. It's up to the community to work together and make
things happen here. Get in touch and let's see what's possible.
