One thing we're proud of here at Dragon is that one of our core goals is to provide opportunities. Everyone needs a little help sometimes - maybe you're new to town and want to get "in" to the community, maybe you're an artist with an idea, maybe you're just wanting a cool place to throw a birthday party for your kid. Dragon really works to support the community.
And it's not always about the theatre.
Recently you might have noticed a new sign up in the front window.
Backstage Coworking is a new effort that we're helping out with. The idea is simple - many of us work from home and, let's face it, if you're like me eventually you need to get out and, you know, interact with real actual people face to face or run the risk of being an unshowered unsocialized hermit. (It's not just me, right? Right??) At Backstage Coworking you can rent desk space with free WiFi and coffee and come work in the Dragon studio for the day. And you can meet other like-minded people and be a part of a community. Pretty cool. This notion has taken off in a number of tech-friendly areas in the U.S. and we're proud to offer such a service in downtown Palo Alto at Dragon Theatre. Dave, the leader of this initiative, has really worked to make it social too. There are a number of planned open days and happy hours and whatnot. It's pretty cool. If you go to their website you can see all the options, plus their calendar of events.
Like I learned from watching PBS - sharing is caring!
