Artists & Experts Wanted
Got expertise to share? Are you interested in leading a workshop for Click and the community? We are regularly scheduling professional development opportunities in a variety of subject areas such as social media best practices, financing business growth, collaboration, organizational management, presentation skills, and more.
Would you like to be a teaching artist or performer? Click is also proud to participate in Northampton Arts Night Out. Each month on the second Friday we open our doors to the community and celebrate the arts, through hands-on art making and/or music performances in our space. We are seeking musicians to play our beautiful grand piano or your own acoustic instruments and are also looking for artists to lead art activities for kids of all ages.
KIVA ZIP LOANS
Kiva Zip is a program of Kiva.org, an international lending organization for individuals and small businesses. Kiva Zip makes micro-finance loans for small businesses in the US and Kenya that contribute in a meaningful way to the social good. Borrowers can request 0% interest loans of up to $5000 to grow their businesses and funding comes from individuals near and far through an online giving platform.
Kiva Zip is a great fit for Click Workspace. As a coworking organization hosting many small businesses in our space, and as a dynamic member of the Northampton community, we see building networks and opportunities to invest in each other’s success as a key role that we can fill.
As a Kiva Zip Trustee Click endorses borrowers and boosts their capacity for outreach to the community through our own networks of potential lenders. Our Kiva advisory team meets borrowers and reviews loans to determine if they are a good fit with our mission. Then we help to promote an approved loan through our social media and colleague organizations. Contact us if you are interested in learning about how to apply for a Kiva Zip loan!
