Stephanie Dyson Capstone
From the ever-influential (and never-aging) lips of Pharrell Williams: “'Entrepreneur 'just denotes that you recognize that you're doing things across disciplines and that you're blazing your own path.” My capstone was my own exploration of the term entrepreneur and of myself as a renaissance woman. I actually began my Capstone in June 2015 when I began work with a thrift shop located on South Street called Here’s To Cool Stuff. There, I met a myriad partners and friends who would work with my over the course of my senior year to attend learning events and produce the following projects:
Administrative Internship at The Village of Arts & Humanities in North Philadelphia
YCenter 2-Week Social Entrepreneurship Incubator
Five Finger Posse Art Shows
Radiation Media Gang Events
Philly Art Collective Events
Events Internship with Art(is) for Kids
Elebration, the group that I did a majority of my work with, gave me the opportunity to build my personal clientele and help me decide that I’d like to go to school for Public Relations. I worked with countless artists, managing their social media accounts and commission requests, creating business cards, organizing and being a liaison for galleries and shows. In terms of shows and events, I managed four over the course of the school-year:
South Street Cypher @ InksterInc (530 S. 4th Street) - 3/12
Philly Art Collective 7th Installment @ OpenSpacePHL- 4/16
Locals Only @ H2CS (1214 South Street) - 5/6
Frieday @ The Boom Room (1300 N. Front Street) - 5/20
