Bringing Fair Trade Arts to Providence
By: Cayla Mackey
July 15, 2015
We loved hearing from one of our recent graduate-led social ventures, Do Your Dance, this morning at 1 Million Cups! Founder Lindsey Lerner shared her story and plans for the future with the community. This recent Bryant University graduate won their pitch competition with her idea for a fair trade arts company, and is blazing trails in Providence. Do Your Dance currently works out of the Social Enterprise Greenhouse Hub as a Hub Scholarship recipient. Read more about what Bryant has to say, here. Lindsey and her business have also been featured by Providence Business News in their May 2015 article, “Student Entrepreneurship Is In.”
What can the community do for her? Attend her upcoming show! Check Facebook for more info.
