Organization name: Depave

Organization mission statement: Depave promotes the transformation of over-paved places to overcome the social and environmental impacts of pavement. We engage communities and reconnect urban landscapes to nature through action-oriented projects, education, advocacy and stewardship.

Are you a:: Organization

This organization or cause is a 501(c)3 non-profit: Yes

What groups or causes does your organization serve?: Depave empowers a diversity of communities (primarily public and private school groups, communities of faith, and social service organizations) to transform paved places into thriving green spaces in which to grow food, create natural play spaces, and improve the urban-natural environment.

Project description: We are seeking a variety of services (below) to help Depave tell our story and that of our constituents in order to increase our regional exposure to gain project sites/partners, donors and business sponsors, and volunteers. Our primary need is for a writer to produce pieces to help us promote and a videographer to capture the inspiring action of our work and produce a next gen video piece.

Project needs: storytelling, event photography, postcards, advertising campaign, promotional video, documentary/storytelling video

Project Timeline: 3-6 months

How will this creative work help you overcome challenges or meet specific goals?: Depave is a low capacity, super high impact organization without enough time to promote our totally unique and radical work (we are crazy busy supporting community members in transforming places). You can help supercharge our mission by helping us grow awareness of our work and thus grow our on-the ground greenspaces. Thanks for considering our request!!!
