Oregon County Co-Op Cultural Corridor

In a joint effort between Gould Evans and the The Oregon County Food Producers and Artisans Co-Op, our team traveled to Alton, Missouri to work with the Co-Op's founder, Rachel Reynolds Luster, to film a short video for the Art Place America National Creative Placemaking Fund. Personally, I researched grant application requirements, coordinated the videographer and design team, led the team through the logistics and scheduling, developed interview questions, and oversaw the completion of the video submission. The Oregon County Food Producers and Artisans Co-Op is a community hub and market space in Alton, Missouri serving Oregon County and the surrounding area. They are a collective of farmers, ranchers, artisans, and concerned citizens working toward an holistic approach to community renewal and sustainability with a mission of sustaining the local communities and economies of Oregon County, Missouri through the local sale and trade of the products, skills, and knowledge of area residents. Should the Co-Op receive the grant, funding would aide in completing construction of the new facility. Their current, rented space serves as a market space, community center, and education facility. Gould Evans is working on the design for a new, permanent facility that would offer the following: Mercantile Commercial Kitchen Large Flexible Space Private Office Storage Conference Room/Classroom Cold Storage Dry Storage Restrooms Loading Dock Roof Top Garden
