After a pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Our Growth Project is back and online with our first ever Growthcast!
During this hour long Facebook Live stream, each OGP team member caught the audience up on how they’d been passing time in recent weeks. We also officially announced our newest team member, Samuel Gezehagne! Sammy will primarily focus on OGP’s social media accounts and we’re excited to have him on the team.
We talked about current events including the coronavirus pandemic as well as the local and national George Floyd protests. We watched our very own Director of Community Engagement Soleil Bashale’s music video for his song “Emerald City.”
Then we switched gears and discussed all kinds of different topics. These ranged from Mayor Paul TenHaken’s Batman former alter ego Paul Bat Haken to Soleil’s legendary missed basketball shot at the Sioux Falls Skyforce game earlier this year.
We concluded the stream with a call to action asking viewers to send us links to their projects as well as mentioned we may be doing a virtual open mic soon!
