These past weeks have been busy for Hangar 1. We started brainstorming together some quite amazing partners everything involving our event number two. Both organizations have been following each other for a while and acknowledged that instead of competing, we should unite and create something to surprise you once again.
The event it’s still very much kept under wraps, but those wraps are very fine ones, mostly due to our enthusiasm. We want to tell you all about it! And especially we want to introduce our partners, whom you already possibly know, but let’s keep the mystery for a couple of weeks more, anyways, it’s gonna be badass.
Most importantly, we have been under a bit of stress since the closing of the Tempelhof shelter is becoming a fact. We are always seeking to bond with the children and trying to find alternatives for when this happens. You may be thinking why we have not addressed such rumors, and this is because we want to be as accurate as possible with the information, out of respect for the children and their families, the organization running the center, and our volunteers. So, in short, we are very aware of this event, and we are working counter-clock to see what will our next move will be, because essentially, we want to keep up the creative development of our children even though we won’t be meeting at Hangar 1 for much longer. This requires a plan that contemplates both sustainability and is adaptable to unforeseeable events that will come along the way, so please bear with us while we work on it.
The third news is one that makes us quite proud: we have finished the registration process, and in a matter of days we will be able to unlock the doors of much more possibilities for volunteers, children, families, and for our Organization’s growth. With already two years running non-stop, Hangar 1 is still growing, learning and will become bigger. We are professionalizing every aspect possible of our Charity Organization, while keeping up the Playdates, planning the event, establishing alliances, and thinking of the scheme post-Tempelhof. Yes, we are natural born multitaskers and yes, we are running around like headless chickens from one meeting to another.
Finally, there is one essential thing to note: we are embracing imperfection. We have and will keep making mistakes along the way, experiencing delays and so on. We are testing new grounds every single day that passes. And we are also trying to enjoy the process, our lives, and our friendship. So we are not striving for peace prizes (not that we could apply for one with the dry humor that characterizes and unites the Hangar 1 crew), we are mostly trying to focus on the kids, and getting ready to offer you a new experience to raise awareness through art and discussions. Once again, stay tuned.
