Hello, World

Hello, it’s me Jackie. For a while now I’ve been thinking about starting up a blog again. Back before Blank Slate was even called Blank Slate, we were called the Northeast Ohio DIY Art and Music Association (NEOHDAMA). I used to post on NEOHDAMA’s tumblr to sort of update and educate on what we were doing. I think I stopped because the venue got busy and my career got busy. Probably around when I lived in Akron for a year. If you’re curious you can check out my super old posts here.

Anyway, I’m still passionate about telling you about our events. And I think that a lot of people don’t totally understand what it means to be a diy venue and safer space. That’s what I will be talking about here. So yeah check me out, I’ll be posting once a week or so. And feel free to comment too. It makes posting so much more worthwhile if I know someone is reading.
