As 540WMain approaches it’s 2 year anniversary in June 2018, I am pleased to share that over 200 classes have been taught in the community room. Coordinating and curating many of these classes has been a labor of love and as we’ve grown so has my need to focus on other sustainability aspects of the organization.
That said, I am pleased to announce 540WMain’s new streamlined portal for submitting class/course proposals. Community Organizer Jake Sell Hicks will now manage all class/course proposals via this new system. If you are a community member or educator interested in teaching at 540WMain please read the updated guidelines below and be sure to reach out to Jake should you have any questions.
The most effective (and quickest) way to present your product(s), services, or class to the community is to sponsor the (cost to rent) community room and offer the class to the community for free. The basic hourly rate is $35/hour and you can reserve the Community Room any time it is available. This sponsorship not only supports 540WMain’s operations as a grassroots non-profit but gives back to the community.
If you are not financially able to sponsor a class don’t worry. We have a streamlined class/course proposal system for you to follow.
All new class/course proposals will be added to our Class/Course Waitlist. Submit your proposal by clicking the link below. Our Community Organizer (Jake Sell Hicks) will add your proposal to the waitlist and contact you personally if an opening for a new class/course becomes available.
