Working for a small nonprofit, getting the word out about our studio and events has been a challenge. Newspapers close down left and right, and media is so difficult to navigate and capture, especially when we often report on positive happenings in the community, and not sensationalized, violent activities.

When we first hear about The Rapidian, both that it was an online local news source and that we as a nonprofit could be citizen journalists, we were thrilled to say the least!  


Not only have we reaped the rewards of being able to share our stories online, but it's been easy to do.
We can post about special events and projects, but mostly we feature monthly stories about artists in the Heartside Community, who so rarely are featured in a positive light. We look forward to interviewing different artists and sharing them with our community, with The Rapidian being our main conduit.
Heartside is thrilled to have this important venue, both for our sake and for the growth of this community.
