UM,

[Community Multicultural Commission on November 18, 2021.]

DID THE SURVEY AND THE GISP EVENT WHEN THAT DATE IT WAS JULY.

IT WAS, NO, IT WAS AT A SCHOOL WHEN I CAN TAKE AND YEAH.

OKAY.

I WILL SEND YOU THAT LIZ, LIZ WAS GOING OKAY.

SO TIFFANY NOW, DO WE NEED TO TABLE APPROVAL OR I NEED A MOTION FOR SOMEONE I MOVE TO XF.

THEY, UM, THE MEETING MINUTES WITH THE TWO CORRECTION, TIFFANY LAM WAS NOT AT THE LAST MEETING.

AND THEN ALSO A SURVEY FOLLOW UP WITH GIS, THE EVENT, COURTNEY THREE.

OH, I NEED TO AMEND MY MOTION.

I MOVE TO ACCEPT THE MEETING MINUTES WITH THREE CORRECTIONS, TIFFANY LAMB, ABSENTEES AND RENEE DOLL, A STABLY ASIAN LAST SURVEY.

FOLLOW-UP THE GIS DAY EVENT MOVED BY JENNIFER WINS, BUT I CAN DO IT BY ALL IN FAVOR, OPPOSED FOOD DIRECTLY ONTO OUR ITEMS FOR INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATION.

WONDERFUL.

YES, COUNCIL MEMBER AND MORE WHO IS GOING TO BE SHARING WITH US SOME EXCITING INFORMATION AND BACKGROUND ABOUT THE HOW'S THE FESTIVAL WELCOME COUNCIL.

WE ARE SO GLAD THAT YOU COULD JOIN US TODAY.

UH, ANYTHING IN THE WAY OF PREPARATION REALLY DON'T MEAN IT WAS SUCH A EXCITING EVENT, A BIG FESTIVAL THAT I THINK OFF THE TOP OF MY YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THIS EVENING.

UM, IT MAY BE BETTER.

WELL, NO, I'LL JUST GO AHEAD AND GIVE IT TO YOU.

I THINK THE BEST, PROBABLY THE REASON THAT I'M HEARING THAT YOU'VE GOT SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT IT.

UM, I'M CERTAIN THAT AS YOU THINK ABOUT SOMETHING LIKE THE MOSAIC FESTIVAL AND IF JENNIFER AND CHARLIE AROUND ROOM, THEY'RE THE ONLY ONES THAT ARE STILL HERE.

AND WHEN I SERVE ON HIS BODY, LET ME SAY TO YOU, I ENJOY SERVING ON THIS BODY.

THIS IS WHERE IT ALL STARTS RIGHT HERE.

YOU PROBABLY AS WELL, OR YOU PROBABLY HAVE SOCIETY, JOBS, DUTIES, RESPONSIBILITIES OF ANY BOARD OR COMMISSION OUT THERE BECAUSE YOU ARE THE MULTI-CULTURE VERBAL COMMISSION, MEANING THAT YOU REPRESENT.

WE HAVE THE MOST DIVERSE CULTURAL PEOPLE, AND I'M GOING TO THINK, I'M THINKING THAT WE ARE PROBABLY IN THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES.

WE MIGHT HAVE THE MOST FIFTH OR SIX MORTGAGES CULTURAL GROUP IN DIVERSITY OF UNION CITY.

THAT'S AWESOME.

IT'S THE SAME THAT WE, YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO LEAVE GROWN-UP TO GO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

YOU WANT TO GO SPEAK ANY LANGUAGE YOU WANT TO SPEAK.

AND THAT SAYS SO MUCH ABOUT A GIRL, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, I THINK THAT, UH, I BECAME A CITY COUNCIL AS A RESULT OF THE CITY WHERE YOU'RE SITTING RIGHT NOW AND YOU DON'T KNOW THIS, BUT MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN APPOINTED TO THIS COMMISSION.

SO YOU COUNSEL THEM AND ALL ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WHO'S GOING TO COME BEHIND THEM.

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

WHO'S GOING TO, WHO'S GOING TO KNOW THE CITY.

WHO'S GOING TO KNOW THE PEOPLE WHO'S GOING TO HELP ESTABLISH RELATIONSHIPS IS SO IMPORTANT.

IT'S SO IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT WE CAN LOOK TO WHEN THAT TIME COMES.

WHAT HAD HAPPENED TO ME THERE AIN'T NO, NOBODY GOING TO TOLD ME THAT I'D BE SITTING HERE AT THE CITY COUNCIL TONIGHT.

THAT'S THE LAST THING THAT I EVER HAD ON MY MIND WHEN HE CALLS MY SERVICE,

[00:05:01]

BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW THAT YOU'RE BUILDING A RESUME RIGHT NOW OR RESUMES, AND EACH OF YOU ARE SERVING LEADERS THAT WE THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SERVICE.

SO NOW WITH THAT, GET THAT OUT THERE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU FOR EVERY MULTI-CULTURE.

I MEAN, FOR THE MUSIC FESTIVAL, I WAS A VERY INTERESTING VENTURE, UH, MYSELF AND, UH, NOMINATING ADAM, MARCY, MARCY, AS HE'S MARRIED NOW MORE SAY WAS ORIGINALLY DEBBIE DESIGNATED TO BE THE CHAIRPERSON OR THE FESTIVAL.

MY BACKGROUND, UH, I HAVE BEEN IN INVOLVED WITH ENTERTAINMENT SERVICE, AND THEN I WAS A PASTOR.

AND IF YOU PASS ME THIS DATE, EVERY SUNDAY IN PRODUCTION, EVERY SUNDAY, YOU'RE PROJECT MANAGING AND YOU'RE PUTTING THINGS TOGETHER.

AND SO THIS KIND OF, I CAME A LITTLE NATURAL, BUT ONE THING BACK TO YOU BEFORE WE GET STARTED TALKING ABOUT YOU GOT THE HELL OUT OF THESE POINTERS, THERE'S GOTTA BE AT LEAST AT LEAST ONE WHO IS SO BADLY IS KIND OF TO BE A DESIGNER, BECAUSE WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT TAKING ON IS GILBERT.

IF YOU'VE GOT AT LEAST THAT ONE PERSON THAT HAS THAT BURNS UP TO SEE ALL OF THIS COMMUNITY, ALL OF THIS CITY COME TOGETHER, A WHOLE ONE STATE SHOW, THEIR CULTURAL BACKGROUND AND SOME TYPE OF ART, SOME TYPE OF FORM OF CULTURAL.

IF YOU'VE GOT THAT, YOU CAN MAKE THIS WORK WHAT TO TAKE.

AT LEAST ONE PERSON THAT'S ABLE TO DO THAT.

NOW, EVEN BETTER.

WHEN YOU HAVE A TEAM, WE HAVE A TEAM AND I WORK TOGETHER AND THE REST OF THE COMMISSION WORK WITH.

SO THAT'S THE FIRST THING I SAY.

SO WHO IS THAT PERSON? WHERE ARE YOU? ALL RIGHT? WHAT DO I HAVE TO IDENTIFY THAT? NOW I HAVE WANTED THAT SINCE I JOINED THIS COMMISSION.

OKAY.

MY PASSION IS THERE.

OKAY, WELL, YOU'VE GOT A PERSON SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO YOU.

YOU BEEN BEEN IT TO WHEREVER FOR A YEAR.

EVERY TIME WE COME TO A MEETING OR WHATEVER, SHE, SHE MAKES US PROMISE.

WE'RE GOING TO DO ANOTHER BOAT.

I GO.

BUT THE FIRST THING IS THAT THE SECOND THING IS WE INTERVIEW GO TODAY, UH, TO THE DOWNTOWNS FOR A GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY.

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS I ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO AS A MULTICULTURAL COMMISSION, UH, IDENTIFY SOME OF THE THINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING IN THE CITY AND DO TRY TO DISSIPATE IN THOSE.

THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY IMPORTANT TO HEAR.

WE BROKE GROUND TODAY ON A MULTIMILLION DOLLAR RENOVATION PROJECT FOR THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE.

AND THAT'S PROBABLY WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO BE HOSTED IN YOUR MOSAIC APPLE.

ANYWAY, IT MEANS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE OPPORTUNITY TO THEN HIGHLIGHT THAT SPACE.

IT'S GOING TO BE A BEAUTIFUL SPACE.

IT'S GOING TO BE DIFFERENT.

EVERYTHING ON THAT.

LET ME CHANGE FROM WHEN WE HAD IT BEFORE, IT'S A LOOK.

THE FIRST THING YOU NEED TO IDENTIFY AS PLANNED, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO THIS AND HOW I'M GOING TO SAY SOME THINGS THAT WILL HOPEFULLY HELP YOU UNDERSTAND YOU DON'T TAKE TWO YEARS TO DO THIS.

TAKE A YEAR.

WE DID THE MOSAIC FESTIVAL.

I THINK IT WAS, I CAN'T GET INTO, IT HAD TO BEEN SIX MONTHS.

WE GAVE THE MOSAIC IN SIX MONTHS, BUT AGAIN, WE HAD AT LEAST TWO PEOPLE WHO WERE VERY INTERESTED IN MAKING IT HAPPEN.

AND SO THE SECOND THING IS ONCE WE IDENTIFIED, WHEN WE WANT IT TO HAPPEN, WE HAVE TO IDENTIFY WHAT, WHAT IS IT YOU WANT TO SAY? WHY ARE YOU HOSTING THE MOSAIC FESTIVAL AS HE DIDN'T WANT? HAVE YOU SEEN, DID YOU GO AND TAKE A LOOK AT HOW THE VIDEO, THERE IS A VIDEO THAT YOU MAY WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE TIMELINE, TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED AND HOW ALL OF THOSE DIFFERENT CULTURES CAME TOGETHER.

WHAT DID DID YOU WANT TO SEE IT? WHAT DID IT? YOU CAN DO BETTER.

THERE'S SO MUCH MORE CREATIVITY THAT COULD HAVE GONE INTO IT, PROJECT MANAGING BEST, BUT THAT'S ALL THAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT HERE AND WHAT IT STORES UP WITH.

IT STARTS OUT WITH YOU IDENTIFYING WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE, AND THEN IT'S GOING TO HELP YOU TO BRING IT TOGETHER.

AND I'M GOING TO SAY THIS TO YOU.

THIS LADY RIGHT HERE,

[00:10:04]

VALUABLE ASSETS VALUABLE.

THANK YOU, SIR.

EVERY ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT THEY BRING INTO THIS FROM THE ASIAN COMMUNITY.

NOW YOU'RE GOING TO NEED TO HAVE STAGE CROSS.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE BUDGET, EQUIPMENT, AUDIO, VISUAL AIDS, ALL OF THOSE TYPES OF THINGS, BUT UNDERSTAND SOMETHING.

HERE'S THE BEAUTY OF WHAT YOU HAVE AS A COUNCILMAN.

I, I COME INTO THIS AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU IT'S BEEN A HECK OF A LEARNING CURVE.

I LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY, BUT ONE OF THE THINGS I LEARN VERY QUICKLY, AND I THINK I PICKED IT UP, PROBABLY HAS A BIGGER IN MY LIFE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW IT ALL.

NO PEOPLE DIDN'T DO THIS YOUNG LADY RIGHT HERE.

SEE IT MAKES ME LOOK GOOD.

SEE.

AND, UM, WHAT'S MY KARMA.

I CAN'T DO NO WRONG.

OKAY.

WE'LL BE LEAVING HERE TONIGHT AND GOING TO, UH, A, UH, UH, YOU, WE'RE GOING TO DISTRICT FOUR TO MINE, BUT I SAY THAT TO SAY TO YOU, YOU ALREADY HAVE EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED AT YOUR DISPOSAL.

YOU HAVE A CITY OF GROWING STAFF, YOU HAVE THE RECORDING, YOU HAVE THE AUDIO VISUAL, YOU HAVE, YOU NEED PARKS AND RECREATION.

THEY'RE GOING TO PLAY A VERY IMPORTANT PART IN EVERYTHING THAT YOU DO.

AND WE ARE READY, WILLING, AND ABLE, READY TO GO TO WORK FOR YOU.

WHEN YOU SAY LET'S PULL IT TOGETHER, THAT THEY BUILD UP A STAGE OUT THERE FOR YOU.

THEY'RE GOING TO PUT, UH, WHATEVER, WHATEVER GRAPHICS AND ALL THAT.

YOU HAVE THE GARLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT.

YOU'RE GOING TO NEED THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYTHING IS SAFE OR YOU HAVE A FRAUD DEPARTMENT.

THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT, UH, YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANY HAZARDS AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE.

YOU HAVE AWESOME.

HEY, MS. WHITE ON YOUR NOSE, AWESOME.

MARKETING STUDIOS AND MARKETING IS THE KEY MARKETING IS THE KEY.

MAKING SURE THAT YOU GET THAT MESSAGE OUT THERE TO BRING THE PEOPLE BECAUSE HERE'S THE KEY.

THE KEY IS GETTING THE PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE, DOING THAT PROMOTION AND ADVERTISING IN SUCH A MANNER THAT THEY WANT TO BE HERE.

AND BY THE WAY, THEY DO WANT TO BE HERE.

THEY WANT TO SHOW OFF.

THEY WANT TO SHOW THEIR TALENTS.

YOU'RE GOING TO HELP PEOPLE FROM PLAYFUL.

YOU NEVER HEARD.

AND THEY'RE GOING TO COMMENT ABOUT A DANCE.

THEY'RE GOING TO SAY INSTRUMENTS.

YOU'RE GOING TO TELL, CAN I ASK HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ATTENDED THE MOSAIC FESTIVAL, REMEMBER OUTSIDE EVENTS.

BUT, UH, HOW MANY OF YOU WORK WITH FANS? SO WE ATTENDED, WELL, I DON'T KNOW.

I COULD NOT TELL YOU ALL I RUN OFFICIAL TOWN, BUT THERE WAS STANDING ROOM ONLY.

AND I PICK IT UP.

NOW THEY CALL IT.

WE HAVE BEEN PROMOTING THE DOWNTOWN SPACE A LOT MORE THAN EVER.

SO WITH THAT, WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT YOU'RE GOING TO NEED? ONE OR TWO PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE THE TV.

I'M JUST TALKING ABOUT THOSE ONE OR TWO PEOPLE.

HOW THAT EARNING THE TOP OF IT.

AND THAT'S THE PIECE THAT PEOPLE WANT TO USE AROUND THE CALLS THAT I HAD TO MAKE.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE ON THE TELEPHONE BECAUSE ONCE PEOPLE SAY THEIR FAITH, ONCE YOU START THAT, AND USUALLY THEY SAY THAT SOME PEOPLE WANT TO SAY YES, I WANT TO BE PART OF IT, BUT THEN YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE ENOUGH PEOPLE.

I SAID, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO CALL THEM.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO LEAVE THIS, GOT TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL THEM.

AND THEN ONCE THEY DO THINK THEY'RE GOING TO BE QUIET, THEN YOU GOT TO CALL AND REMIND THEM.

AND IT'S A PROCESS.

BUT AGAIN, IF YOU HAVE THAT PERSON THAT YOU WILL DO IT AND YOU WALK UP TO THE POINT OF ERROR FOR WHAT I'LL CALL THEM FIVE TIMES NOW I'M NOT CALLING NORMAL.

NO, SO THAT'S MORE, THE OTHER THING IS EACH ONE YOU CAN TAKE.

AND IN FACT, WE GOT A TEAM, A TEAM WHO'S GOING TO, WHO'S GOING TO MAKE SURE IT COME OUT OF THE WAY

[00:15:02]

YOUR STAFF PERSON SEES THE ONE.

I HANDLE A LOT OF THIS FOR YOU, BUT YOU CAN TAKE A LOT OF THE WORK OFF OF HER BY EACH OF YOU TAKING ON OUR RESPONSIBILITY.

OKAY.

AND THEN LET HIM HURT, DIRECT YOU TO WHO YOU NEED TO BE TALKING TO.

SO WITH THAT, I COULD TALK ALL EVENING ABOUT IT.

BUT WITH THAT THOUGH, THE POINT THAT I WOULD SAY TO YOU, IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT, IDENTIFY WHEN, BUT DON'T LET DON'T THINK THAT IT'S GOING TO TAKE TWO YEARS, WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE.

ONCE YOU GET INVOLVED WITH IT, IT'S GOING TO BE A PROBLEM.

ONCE YOU IDENTIFY THAT DATE, THEN YOU WORK BACK FROM THAT DATE INTO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT, LESS THAN WORD MARKETING.

THE OTHER THING THAT I THINK THAT YOU NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT.

SO WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO STOP AND YOU CAN ASK ME QUESTIONS OR APPLE BY GIVING YOU SOME INSIGHTS, AS FAR AS WHAT HAPPENED WITH WAIT, I HAD TO DO IT BY THE WAY.

A LOT OF THAT WORK, IT REALLY FELL ON ME.

IT REALLY DID.

AND I ENJOYED IT.

I REALLY ENJOYED IT CAUSE IT WAS MY FIRST REAL STEP AND I WANTED IT TO BE A SUCCESS.

WHAT WOULD THAT, I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION.

UM, IF WE DECIDED THAT WE WANTED TO DO THE NEXT EVENT, UM, THE, UH, TELECONFERENCE VERSUS IN-PERSON, DO YOU HAVE ANY PARTICULAR IDEAS THAT WE SHOULD, IF YOU WANT TO DO IT ON TELECONFERENCE, UH, YOU PROBABLY, YOU PROBABLY GET GOOD PARTICIPANTS IN THE BACK.

YOU PROBABLY GET BETTER PARTICIPATION THAN YOU WOULD, UH, BY HIM BEING VIVE.

BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH I BELIEVE YOUR HOMES, YOU KNOW, BE PART OF, UM, I GUESS THE QUESTION I WOULD ASK IS WHY WOULD YOU DO, HOW WOULD YOU WANT TO DO IT THOUGH? ALL THAT TELEPHONE.

SO A COUPLE OF THINGS KELVIN'S NOT OVER.

IF WE WERE TALKING ABOUT DOING IT IN 2022, WE HAVE NO GUARANTEE THAT THERE'S NOT ANOTHER VARIANT THAT COULD THROW ASIDE.

UM, THE OTHER THING ABOUT 2022, WHICH I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IS THAT WE, THE SQUARE IS OFF THE TABLE.

SO WHAT COULD WE DO NEXT YEAR, IF NOT USING THE SQUARE, MAYBE THERE'S ANOTHER LOCATION IN GARLAND.

WE CERTAINLY HAVE WONDERFUL RECENTLY RENOVATED REC CENTERS, ALL OVER TOWN, ALL OVER TOWN.

SO THEY MAY NOT BE THE SQUARE THE FIRST TIME, BUT THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS THAT WE WERE LOOKING AT A VIRTUAL EVENT IS JUST LOOKING AT COVID AND WHERE WE ARE ON THAT.

YOU KNOW, WE THOUGHT IT WAS OVER WHEN THE VACCINE CAME AND THAT WILL JUST PROVEN TO BE AN ACCURATE.

SO IF WE RESET A DATE IN 2022, VIRTUAL MIGHT BE THE ONE, BUT LATER IT COULD BE LATER IN THE YEAR AND IT COULD BE IN-PERSON.

I CAN ONLY THEY'RE TALKING 20, 24 THAT'S TWO YEARS.

AND I MATTER OF FACT, I JUST TALKED TO THE DEVELOPER.

THE GUY WAS GOING TO ASK ME NEXT WEEK.

YEAH.

BUT NOTHING UNDER CONSTRUCTION EVER HAPPENS WHEN IT'S SUPPOSED TO.

I WOULD SAY TO THAT, UH, THAT IS, THAT IS SOMETHING THAT THIS BODY WILL HAVE TO CREATE CONSENSUS ON.

I SAY THAT BECAUSE WE, AS, UH, AS THE BOARD, AS THE COUNCIL, WE ARE ENCOURAGING EVERYONE WEAR A MASK, CONTINUE DISTANCING, CONTINUE TO PROTECT YOURSELF.

WE ENCOURAGE THAT.

AT THE SAME TIME TODAY, I WAS AT A FUNERAL.

AARON WAS 300, 400 PEOPLE GIVE THAT BEAUTIFUL CEREMONY.

AND, UH, FOR THE MOST PART, MOST PEOPLE DID NOT HAVE THAT.

WE'RE SITTING HERE AT NIGHT.

MOST OF US DON'T HAVE HOME, MAN.

UH, I JUST LEFT ON THE GROUND BREAKING CEREMONY OF WHAT, WHAT DID WE SAY THERE? UM, THAT'S SOMETHING THAT ONLY THIS BODY, YOU GUYS ARE THE ONES WHO HAVE TO COME TO GRIPS WITH WHICH WAY YOU WANT TO SOLVE WITH THEM.

UH, I'M NOT, WHEN YOU WOULD MAKE A SUGGESTION, I'M GLAD THE REASON I'M DOING THAT IS, UH, I WOULD, I WOULD BE BIASED.

I WOULD BE BIASED

[00:20:01]

BECAUSE OF KELLER COUNCILMAN.

I WALK INTO SETTINGS.

I WAS ONE OF THE FIRST PEOPLE EXPOSE IN A RESTAURANT.

I DIDN'T CATCH THE COVID, BUT I GOT THE CALL.

THERE WAS SOMEBODY IN THE REST OF MY, THAT HAD HAD THE VIRUS AT THE TIME, BUT THIS WILL BE AT LEAST, I THINK ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE MONTHS AGO, BASED ON WHAT I AM GATHERING AT THE POINT IN DECLINE, PEOPLE WERE TRULY, UH, INTERVIEWED IN THE HOSPITAL OR ARE PASSING AWAY ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT HAD THE VACCINE.

UM, AGAIN, I WOULD HAVE TO SAY TO YOU, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO, WE'LL HAVE TO MAKE THAT DECISION, BUT I WOULD SAY MAYBE CONTINGENT, CREATING TO HAVE A CONTINGENCY PLAN.

YOU MAY WANT TO TRY AND PLAN IT FOR OXIDE, BUT IF THINGS DON'T LOOK GOOD, HAVE THE BACKUP, I DON'T KNOW THAT WOULD MADAM CHAIR.

UM, TO ME, I, I WOULD RATHER WAIT AND DO A LIFE.

YOU WOULD GET THE WHOLE FAMILY INVOLVED, INCLUDING KIDS AND, AND YOU KNOW, THE WHOLE FAMILY, IF YOU DO IT VIRTUAL, YOU MIGHT CHEAT PART OF IT, BUT YOU DIDN'T WANT TO SIT THERE AND WATCH THE WHOLE DEAL.

THE KIDS AREN'T GOING TO BE INTERESTED ON SITTING DOWN AND WATCHING THAT THEY CAN GET THEM, THEIR COMPUTERS OR THEIR TOYS OR WHATEVER.

IT WOULD BE JUST THE ADULTS.

UM, I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T, I DON'T GET AS EXCITED ON SEEING SOMETHING ON TV VERSUS WHETHER IT'S AN ART SHOW OR WHATEVER, VERSUS ACTUALLY SEEING IT.

YOU GET MORE OUT OF IT.

YOU GET BORED.

I DON'T KNOW.

YOU GET MORE EXCITED ABOUT IT.

MY OPINION, THE PARTIAL, OR IS 10 YEARS FROM NOW.

IF YOU GO BACK AND LOOK AT IT AND NOWADAYS EVERYBODY REPORTS EVERYTHING.

YEAH.

UM, ANYONE ELSE DOES ANYONE NOT HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE COUNCIL? OKAY.

WE LOVE YOUR APPOINTEE.

WE'RE VERY, VERY GRATEFUL FOR HER.

OH YES.

THE OTHER THING, THE OTHER THING I HAD WAS OKAY.

WE APPROACHED THE DIFFERENT CULTURES THAT WE HAVE.

WHAT IS IT THAT WE WANT THEM TO DO? HOW, HOW DO WE WANT THEM TO PARTICIPATE? THAT'S UP TO THAT.

YEAH.

YOU WANT TO SAY A LITTLE SPEECH OR DO YOU WANT TO SHOW A DISPLAY OR SOMETHING? YOU KNOW, OR WE ARE GOING TO HIGHLIGHT YOUR CULTURAL DIVERSITY, YOU KNOW, YOU CALL IT, THEY DO A NEW TRICK.

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT TO DEMONSTRATE, TO DISPLAY YOUR CULTURAL BACKGROUND, YOUR CULTURAL HERITAGE.

AND THEY LET ME DO A DRUM BEAT ROOM ONE TO DO THIS DANCE, UH, THE HISPANIC, THEY HAVE THIS THING WHERE THEY PUT STICKS ON .

I MEAN, THEY'RE JUST IN COLORFUL, I MEAN, ASIAN COMMUNITY, AND THEY'RE GOING TO COME WITH SO MANY COLORFUL TYPES OF THE DRAGONS AND THEY IS JUST AN ART.

IT'S JUST A BEAUTIFUL, WE HAVE A LIST OF COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS THAT YOU PARTNERED WITH.

DO YOU STILL HAVE THAT LIST TOO? AND I'M SURE, I'M SURE WE DO HAVE THE LIST.

WE DO HAVE THE LIST DEVELOP, UH, UH, ADD THINGS TO IT, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THAT LIST TOO.

AND OF COURSE, CONTACTS WILL CHANGE.

IT'S BEEN 10 YEARS, BUT IT'S STILL, YOU KNOW, THE GIRL IS SO VERY, VERY DIVERSE AND YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING FROM CULTURAL ORGANIZATIONS TO SCHOOL GROUPS, TO FAITH, COMMUNITIES, TO SPORTS COMMUNITIES, WE HAVE SO SUCH A RICH MOSAIC.

YES.

HERE.

BOY SCOUTS OPENED IT UP, CERTAINLY GIRLS.

AND WE'VE JUST GOT, WE DIDN'T HAVE SO MUCH.

SO, UM, BECAUSE WE CALL IT A MOSAIC.

IF WE COULD DO A CON, CAUSE I KNOW THAT WE ARE REBUILDING THE, THE SQUARE, RIGHT? LIKE THAT'S THE CONSTRUCTION IS THERE.

WHAT IF LIKE, IF WE EVER GOT THE, LIKE, IF WE DID IT IN PERSON OR LIKE LATER ON, WE ACTUALLY DID A MOSAIC OF LIKE WE HAVE, IF THERE'S LIKE A COMMUNITY WELDER OR WHATEVER, AND LIKE DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COMMUNITY THAT JUST V8, WE'RE ABLE TO PUT IT TOGETHER AS LIKE A SYMBOL OF LIKE

[00:25:01]

WHAT WE DO HERE.

I LOVE THAT IT IS A COMMUNITY EVENT FOR, AND BY COMMUNITY.

I LOVE THAT.

THAT'S REALLY COOL.

OKAY, SIR.

PERMANENT INSTALLATION OF SOME SORT.

I THINK WE GOT MUCH BETTER ABOUT PUBLIC ART AND THAT WOULD BE VERY, AND THAT'S SO THAT'S ANOTHER THING THAT'S REALLY EASY TO MAKE HAPPEN.

SO, YOU KNOW, MY THOUGHT ON THE, WHEN I WOULD PREFER TO SEE US DO SOME VERSION OF THE MOSAIC FESTIVAL IN 2022, NOW, GIVEN THAT WE HAVE TO DO A LOT OF CONSIDERING AROUND, CAN WE PLAN ON AN IN PERSON EVENT AND A HYBRID, OR CAN WE ONLY PLAN A VIRTUAL WORLD AND HOW THAT WOULD WORK? I DON'T KNOW.

I HAVE, I DON'T HAVE THE ANSWERS.

SO THAT'S OPEN TO DISCUSSION.

I WOULD PREFER THAT WE'D BE ABLE TO DO IT IN PERSON.

I ALSO DON'T HAVE A CRYSTAL BALL.

NO, ONE'S GOING TO TELL ANY OF US WHAT COVID IS GOING TO DO FOR THAT AFTER COVID, THERE WON'T BE ANOTHER PANDEMIC IN 2023.

YOU KNOW, WE, WE DON'T HAVE THAT INFORMATION, BUT I WOULD LIKE US TO PLAN AS IF LIFE WILL BE SOME WHAT NORMAL AND PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO GATHER.

ONE THING I HAVE WITH OUR WORK AND COMMUNITIES FOUNDATION IS TAXES WHERE WE HIRE A CONVENER IS THAT, YOU KNOW, LAST WEEK WE HAD 200 PEOPLE IN A ROOM THAT HASN'T HAPPENED SINCE FEBRUARY 28TH, 2020.

AND IT WAS SO CRAZY, YOU KNOW, TO BE IN THERE, WE HAD 230 INVITATIONS WENT OUT THAT WE USUALLY NET A HUNDRED PEOPLE, 200 PEOPLE WERE SO READY TO GET TOGETHER.

PEOPLE WERE SO READY TO BE IN EACH OTHER'S PRESENCE.

AND THEY BEHAVE SAFELY IN OUR PUBLIC AREAS, THEIR MASKS, A WARRANT, EVERYBODY WORE THEM AS THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT WAS THE TABLE STAKES TO BE TOGETHER.

BUT THEY WERE REALLY, REALLY HAPPY.

AND WHEN YOU HAVE PERFORMING GROUPS, YOU KNOW, THERE'S A DIFFERENT KIND OF ENERGY WHEN YOU'RE PRESENT WHERE THE PROFILE, IT JUST CHANGES.

AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO FROM GROUP TO GROUP AND REALLY SEE THE ARRAY OF WHAT'S AVAILABLE IS A BIG DEAL.

BUT WE'RE NOT GOING TO MAKE THAT DECISION HERE TONIGHT.

THAT'S JUST, THAT'S MY OPINION.

I WANT TO HEAR FROM EVERYONE.

I ALSO WANT TO START LOOKING AT EACH OF THE COMMUNITY PARTNERS THAT YOU'RE WORKING WITH ANY ASK THEM BECAUSE TO ME, NOT ONLY DO WE NOT TELL THEM WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO PRESENT, WE ALSO DON'T TELL THEM WHAT WE'RE GOING TO PRESENT.

WE NEED TO ASK THEM WHAT THEY WANT IT TO BE.

WHAT, WHAT, WHAT DOES, YOU KNOW, WHAT WOULD BE MEANINGFUL TO YOU? I KNOW WHAT'S MEANINGFUL TO ME.

I'M THE ONLY PERSON I CAN SPEAK FOR.

SO ANYTIME WE MAKE ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT WHAT MATTERS TO OTHER PEOPLE, WE'RE ALREADY IN TROUBLE, BUT EACH OF YOU ARE CONNECTED WITH COMMUNITY GROUPS OF YOUR OWN.

AND WE HAVE ASSIGNED GROUPS THAT WE NEED TO BE TALKING TO AS WELL THAT WE PLAN TALKED ABOUT IN OUR RETREATS.

WE NEED TO GO BACK TO THAT LIST AND SAY, OKAY, LET'S GO AND START MAKING CALLS.

UH, MADAME CHAIR, WE CAN DISCUSS MORE LATER.

BUT MY RECOMMENDATION IS THAT WE HOST THE SOCCER TOURNAMENT.

WE HAD MORE THAN 2000 PEOPLE AT WINTER SPOT.

YOU WERE THERE MORE THAN 2000 PEOPLE.

WE HAD TWO DINNERS BACK TO BACK IN THE ROOM AND WE I'M STILL SITTING HERE AND YOU'RE STILL SITTING HERE.

AND THEN YES, UH, 20, 22 OWN.

SO MARK 20 YEARS ANNIVERSARY OF THE CMC.

SO PLEASE DO NOT FORGET THAT.

SO WE MUST DO SOMETHING MADAM CHAIR AND EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU, BIG OR SMALL.

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT WE DO SOMETHING.

THANK YOU, BYE.

AND WHAT TIME OF THE YEAR IS THE FESTIVAL NORMALLY? AND THERE'S NO NORMAL.

SO WE MAKE AN ARMY.

THAT WOULD DEFINITELY BE SOMETHING WE NEED TO THINK ABOUT, DEPENDING ON WHERE IT'S GOING TO BE, BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE IT AT AUTOBON PARK IN JULY 9TH.

YOU COULD'VE HAD IT THIS MONTH.

YEAH.

SO IT'S OCTOBER.

MY THOUGHT IS IT'S IT'S EITHER RIGHT AT THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR.

YEAH.

WHEN WE DID IT IN 2016, IT WAS SET TIME SOMETIME IN SEPTEMBER.

YEAH.

[00:30:01]

SEPTEMBER IS HARD FOR SCHOOL DISTRICT.

I THINK OCTOBER PROBABLY IS A SWEET SPOT.

YEAH.

DOES THIS GARLAND ISD IS THEY FALL BREAK, RIGHT? CAUSE THEY'RE A YEAR ROUND SCHOOL NOW.

SO THEY AREN'T YET BACK THERE.

THEIR CALENDAR FOR 25 TO 23 IS UP.

SO, OKAY.

MOST HAVE SOMETHING IN OCTOBER.

OKAY.

WELL IT'S TIME.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO VOTE TONIGHT.

EVERYONE THINKS YOU, YOU, YOU HAVE HEARD THE CHARGE.

IT TAKES MORE THAN, THAN THE, THE PASSION OF KIMBERLĂ© OR THE PASSION OF JENNIFER.

IT TAKES EVERYONE'S PASSIONATE AND YOU ARE ALL ALREADY INTERESTED.

SO, YOU KNOW, CONSIDER WHAT KIND OF ENERGY YOU WISH TO BRING AND WHO YOU WISH TO CONTACT.

BUT BY THIS TIME, OUR NEXT MEETING, I'D LOVE TO HEAR WHO YOU TALKED TO ABOUT THE MOSAIC FESTIVAL ALREADY.

THANK YOU.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO GO ON FACEBOOK AND LOOK AT ADS.

PICTURE FROM 2016 AT THE MOSAIC, HE WAS LOOKING GOOD.

WHAT HAPPENED? THAT'S MY BEST.

MY QUESTION.

WHAT HAPPENED? WHY DID IT STOP? UH, IT VALIDATES THAT PERSON.

HE HIT IT ON THE HEAD OR IT'S GOT TO BE PASSIONATE PEOPLE BECAUSE IT IS SUCH AN UNDERTAKING.

IF YOU AREN'T SO PASSIONATE THAT YOU WILL DIE FOR IT WON'T HAPPEN BECAUSE IT IS A LOT OF WORK.

A LOT OF CHALLENGES POP UP IN FRONT OF YOU IN THE HEAD.

AND MARCY, YOU WERE REALLY DETERMINED IF THEY WERE THE ONLY TWO THAT DID IT, THEY WERE GOING TO DO IT.

WELL, YOU CAN'T BE IMPRESSING LIFT FOR ANYONE SO THAT THAT'S NOT ALLOWED NOW, BUT IT WILL NOT BE LIKE THAT.

IT CANNOT BE IMPRESSION FROM ANYONE BECAUSE THAT IS NOT SUSTAINABLE.

WE'VE GOT WE'VE GOT TO FIND A WAY TO PLAN IT WHERE WE HAVE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

SO WE ARE, WE ARE INFORMED AND EXCITED AND A LITTLE CONCERN.

WE'LL MAKE IT HAPPEN.

ONE THING WE'RE LOOKING TO LEADERSHIP, CAUSE DAD MORE WILL BE GONE IN TWO YEARS, FOUR YEARS, SIX YEARS.

AND THE LEADERSHIP FROM OUR CITY REALLY SHOULD HAVE COME FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN LEADERS.

WE THINK SO MUCH.

NO, SHE MIGHT BE BACK HERE.

THANKS.

SO WE HAVE A SECOND SPECIAL GUEST TODAY.

DAVID FISHER, THE DIRECTOR OF CULTURAL ARTS FOR THE CITY OF JACQUELINE.

WELCOME DAVID, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

IT'S GREAT TO SEEM THAT WHAT I'M GOING TO SAY IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE BIT OF STEALING WHAT THE COUNCIL MEMBER JUST SAID, UH, BECAUSE I'M GOING TO TALK KIMBERLIN AND I, WHEN WE FIRST HAD LUNCH SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, WHEN I FIRST CAME TO THE POSITION, SHE WAS LIKE, YOU KNOW, WE USED TO HAVE THIS THING CALLED THE MOSAIC FESTIVAL.

AND I SAID, WELL, LET'S, LET'S THINK ABOUT THAT.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THAT.

SO, UH, ACTUALLY PART OF WHAT I CAME TO TALK ABOUT WAS, UH, SOME, SOME BABY STEPS IN THAT DIRECTION.

UM, FOR THOSE OF YOU DON'T KNOW, MY NAME IS DAVID FISHER.

I AM THE DIRECTOR OF DIRECTOR OF CULTURAL ARTS FOR THE CITY OF GARLAND.

UH, I CAME FROM THE CITY OF DALLAS AND WORKED FOR THE OFFICE OF ARTS AND CULTURE IN THE CITY OF DALLAS FOR 25 YEARS.

UM, SO THIS IS FAMILIAR TERRITORY FESTIVALS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

UM, ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS, THE CITY OF BERLIN, UH, ADOPTED A NEW CULTURAL PLANNING JUST THIS PAST SUMMER AND WHAT THE TOP TWO GOALS IN THE CULTURAL PLAN ARE, GET MORE ARTS AND CULTURAL EXPERIENCES INTO THE NEIGHBORHOODS AND INCREASE THE DIVERSITY OF THE, UH, EVENTS THAT WE ARE PRESENTING, HOSTING AND PARTNERING WITH.

SO, UH, MY, MY STAFF AND ARE WORKING HARD TO, TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

UM, KNOW IN ONE HAND WE'RE WORKING TO CONNECT WITH THE, UH, UM, MORE MULTICULTURAL ARTISTS AND ON THE OTHER HAND, TRYING TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITIES AND, UH, AND THAT'S WHERE YOU ALL COME IN BECAUSE YOU KNOW, THE COMMUNITIES.

SO I GO TO JENNIFER AND I SAY, HEY, HOW CAN WE, HOW CAN WE CONNECT WITH THIS COMMUNITY? HOW CAN WE CONNECT WITH, UH, THE LATINO COMMUNITY OR THE ASIAN

[00:35:01]

COMMUNITY, TO THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY WHO ARE THE CONNECTORS AND THE CHURCHES AND THE SANDWICH SHOPS AND THE REC CENTERS, AND HOW, HOW DO WE CONNECT WITH THESE GUYS? AND THEN HOW DO WE CREATE OR DEVELOP OR FIND OR IMPORT, UH, PROGRAMMING, UH, AT THE ART CENTER OR IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS THAT IS REAL, LIKE KIMBERLY SAID, RELEVANT AND MEANINGFUL TO THOSE COMMUNITIES? UM, CAUSE I WILL BE HONEST.

WE, THE ARTS DEPARTMENT HAS NOT DONE A VERY GOOD JOB OF BEING REPRESENTATIVE OF THE MULTICULTURAL COMMUNITIES, APARTMENT AND PART OF THE NEW CULTURAL PLAN.

PART OF THE CHARGE THAT I HAD BEEN GIVEN BY CITY MANAGER IS TO DO THAT.

AND SO THAT'S WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON.

KIMBRA ONE-WORD LUNCHES AND ALL OF THAT.

SO, UM, AND THEN I, AND WE KNOW THAT THE COMMUNITIES ARE OUT THERE AND THAT THE INTEREST IS OUT THERE.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU, ANY OF YOU, I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND THE DIA DOLLARS MORPHOS EVENT ON NOVEMBER 1ST.

YES, SQUARE WAS PACKED AND IT WAS PACKED WITH FAMILIES AND PEOPLE OF ALL AGES, AND THEY WERE MOSTLY LATINO AND SPANISH SPEAKING.

THESE WERE, THESE ARE COMMUNITIES I DON'T USUALLY SEE AT THE ART CENTER AND THAT'S, AND THAT'S, THAT'S A PROBLEM WE HAVE WITH THE COMMUNITIES THAT WE HAVE HERE IN BERLIN.

WE NEED TO MAKE THE ART CENTER AND, AND THAT'S, MY CHARGE IS TO MAKE THE ARTS CENTER A PLACE THAT IS RELEVANT, MEANINGFUL, AND WELCOMING TO ALL OF THE RESIDENTS AND VISITORS.

SO, UM, SO, SO TWO THINGS, KIND OF A BIG PICTURE AND THEN A SMALL PICTURE.

THE SMALL PICTURE IS, UM, WE, UH, THE ARTS DIVISION MANAGES THE PLAZA THEATER ON WITHIN TIMES SQUARE, UH, MID CENTURY MOVIE THEATER, BUT WE DO STAGE THINGS AS WELL AS MOVIES WHILE WE'VE INVESTED IN NEW PROJECTION AND SCREEN EQUIPMENTS, WE'RE GOING TO BE A REALLY NICE MOVIE THEATER.

UM, AND, UH, TALK TO, YOU WERE TALKING WITH, UH, KIMBERLIN ONE OF THE THINGS WE CAN DO QUICKLY.

IN FACT, WE'RE LOOKING TO START IT IN JANUARY IS SHOW FILMS. AND SO WE WERE TALKING ABOUT CREATING AS A, AS A WAY OF LAYING THE FOUNDATION FOR EVERYTHING THAT THE COUNCIL MEMBER WAS JUST TALKING ABOUT, THE MOSAIC FILM SERIES, UH, TO SORT OF GET THE MOSAIC NAME BACK OUT THERE, TO START CONNECTING WITH THESE COMMUNITIES, TO GET THEM TO ONE OF OUR SPACES, UM, AND JUST TO START THE DIALOGUE AND, AND, UH, CONNECTION WITH THE COMMUNITY.

SO, UH, SO WE NEED YOUR HELP.

TWO WAYS, ONE, WE NEED YOUR HELP TO CHOOSE THE FILMS. UM, CAUSE YOU KNOW, I'VE DONE A FAIR AMOUNT OF WORK AND IN SOME ETHNIC AND CULTURALLY SPECIFIC STUFF, BUT I NEED YOUR HELP TO CHOOSE AND WE NEED THE COMMUNITY.

UH, HOW ARE WE GOING TO CELEBRATE THE CULTURES? THE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT, YOU KNOW, EVERYONE'S WELCOME AT EVERY FILM, BUT HOW WONDERFUL IF SOMEONE FROM A COLOMBIAN COMMUNITY SAYS, THIS IS THE FILM WE OUTTA SHOW SOMEBODY FROM MEXICO SAYS, THIS IS WHAT WE OUGHT TO SHOW.

AND THEN WE HAVE PEOPLE.

AND THEN THE SECOND CHALLENGE IS TO CONNECT WITH THOSE COMMUNITIES, MAKE SURE THEY KNOW ABOUT THIS, MAKE SURE THEY'RE WELCOME, MAKE SURE WE CONNECT WITH THEM.

HOWEVER THEY GET THEIR INFORMATION BECAUSE THEY MAY NOT.

THEY'RE PROBABLY NOT ON THE ART CENTER'S EMAIL AND MAY NOT BE ON THE ART CENTER'S FACEBOOK PAGE.

SO WE NEED TO CONNECT INTO, LIKE I SAID, THE CHURCHES AND REC CENTERS AND SANDWICH SHOPS AND OTHER PLACES OF GATHERING THAT THE SAIGON MALL AND THE OTHER PLACES HAVE DRIVEN FOR THESE COMMUNITIES.

AND THEN THAT WORK THAT WILL THEN CONTINUE TO LAY THE FOUNDATION FOR SOMETHING LIKE THE MOSAIC FESTIVAL.

AND LIKE MR. MORRIS SAID, I MEAN, YOU HAVE THE ENTIRE PARK, THE REC STAFF HERE AND NOW THE ARTS CENTER.

I MEAN, WE HAVE FOUR VENUES IN JUNE FROM 200 TO 700 SEATS AND MUSIC, THEATER DANCE, ALL OF THAT ALL YEAR ROUND.

AND WE'RE JUST STARTING TO SET OUR, AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR, WE'LL START SETTING OUR SEASON FOR 2223.

AND WE DEFINITELY WANT TO CARVE OUT SPACE FOR NOT JUST MORE MULTICULTURAL PROGRAMMING, BUT FOR SOMETHING LIKE THE MOSAIC FESTIVAL, WHETHER IT'S IN THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE OR THE ART CENTER OR BACK PARKING LOT OR WHATEVER.

I MEAN, YOU COULD DO A FESTIVAL

[00:40:01]

WHERE YOU HAVE ONE COMPANY IN THE BIG THEATER IN ONE COMPANY IN THE LITTLE BEGINNER ART EXHIBIT AND ONE COMPANY AT THE PLAZA OR A FILM WITH THE PLAZA ON MULTIFACETED MULTICOLORED DINNER AT THE ATRIUM, THE MORAL DRUM CIRCLE AT THE ATRIUM OR WHATEVER, ANY OF THOSE.

SO WE ARE AT YOUR DISPOSAL AND ARE READY TO, TO JUMP INTO ACTIONS OF BOTH THE SPECIAL EVENTS DEPARTMENT AND THE ARTS DEPARTMENT, WHICH ARE BOTH PART OF THE PARK RECREATION AND CULTURAL ARTS DIVISION DEPARTMENT.

UM, WE'RE READY TO GO.

SO I HAVE SOME SHEETS HERE THAT JUST HAVE THAT, JUST, UM, HAVE MY INFORMATION ON IT.

IF YOU WILL JOT DOWN, EMAIL IT TO ME, CALL ME, GIVE IT TO, KIMBERLIN GIVE IT TO RENEE, GET IT TO ME.

THINK ABOUT WHAT, WHAT FILMS SHOULD WE SHARE? WHAT COMMUNITIES SHOULD WE, UH, HEADLINE, WHAT COMMUNITIES DO WE NEED TO TALK TO? AND, UH, THEN WE'LL GET TO WORK, UH, A FILM.

IT'S NOT A FILM, BUT UM, I'VE GONE TWICE ALREADY AT THE ARBORETUM.

THEY HAVE A FESTIVAL OF THE QUINCEANERA DRESSES AND THE PLACE IS PACKED BECAUSE THOSE DRESSES ARE LIKE $2,000.

THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL.

AND THEY HAVE A PROCESSION OF THE GIRLS AND THEY SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT? IT WAS SO SPECIAL.

YOU KNOW, WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO THEM? AND YOU KNOW, DON'T KNOW, THEY'LL SAY A LITTLE SHORT SPEECH, BUT BASICALLY THEY'RE SHOWING OFF THEIR DRESSES.

AND THEN THERE'S A FEW BOOTHS, YOU KNOW, SELLING, YOU KNOW, CULTURAL STUFF, BUT IT'S UNREAL.

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE THERE, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE THEY ONLY WEAR THAT DRESS ONE TIME IN SCENARIO PICTURES AT THE ARBORETUM, ANYTIME YOU GO, JUST LIKE, THERE'S ALWAYS SOMEONE TAKING WEDDING PICTURES.

SO THAT'S A THING, YOU KNOW, AND THAT'S CERTAINLY A FACET OF, IT'S ALWAYS PACKING.

I SAID, WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OF YEARS AND IS BEAUTIFUL.

AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT FITS GARLAND REALLY WELL.

BUT AS YOU KNOW, I SAID EARLIER, THERE'S NOTHING THAT DOESN'T FIT GARLAND REALLY WELL BECAUSE WE ARE SUCH A DIVERSE CITY.

YOU KNOW, GARLAND LOOKS LIKE THE UN TO ME.

THAT'S WHY I MOVED WHERE I MOVED.

AND THAT'S WHY I LIVE HERE BECAUSE I REALLY LIKED BEING SURROUNDED BY ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE AND LEARNING ABOUT ALL THINGS THAT THEY'RE DOING.

BUT AS WE THINK ABOUT THIS FILM FESTIVAL, WE'RE TALKING JANUARY.

SO FOR THE BEGINNING, AND THIS CAN LAST, THIS CAN GO ON FOR A WHILE.

AND IF YOU THINK ABOUT ALL THE CULTURAL HERITAGE MONTHS OF THINGS LIKE THAT, WE CAN TOUCH ON THOSE THINGS TOO.

YOU KNOW, RIGHT NOW AT WORK, I JUST PLAN THE CALENDAR OF VOLUNTEER EVENTS FOR CFT, FOR BUSINESS THAT INCLUDES BLACK HISTORY MONTH AND WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH IN MARCH NATIONAL VOLUNTEER MONTH IN APRIL AAPI, HERITAGE MONTH IN MAY PRIDE MONTH IN JUNE, YOU KNOW, ALL THE WAY THROUGH HISPANIC HERITAGE AND LATINO HERITAGE MONTH, SEPTEMBER 15TH, OCTOBER 15, GOING INTO INDIGENOUS PEOPLES MONTH IN NOVEMBER.

I MEAN LIKE WE JUST DID THIS WORK.

WE DON'T HAVE TO ADHERE TO THAT, BUT IT CERTAINLY GIVES US SOME IDEAS.

AND WE HAVE SO MANY SUBGROUPS OF SO MANY DIFFERENT CULTURES.

WE HAVE TWO PEOPLE ON THIS COMMISSION WHO HELL FROM AFRICA, FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.

WHAT WOULD THE THING BE THAT, WHAT FILMS SHOULD WE WATCH? I BU YOU KNOW, IT'S, IT'S SO A REAL THING TO SAY, WHAT CAN WE SHARE? AND HOW MANY OF THE EUROPEAN CULTURES AS WELL? THERE'S NOT JUST, YOU KNOW, THERE ARE NO MONOLITHIC CULTURES.

IT'S NOT JUST WHITE AND BLACK.

THERE'S SO MUCH, AND THERE'S SO MUCH DIFFERENT.

SO PLEASE TWO THINGS SHARE YOUR OWN CHOICES.

THE DAVID, THE TALK TO THE ELITES, THREE OTHER PEOPLE, WHAT THEY DO NOW, THE IDEA WAS WE'RE GOING TO PUT A LEG, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A LINK ON OUR WEBSITE AND WE'LL GO TO A FORUM THAT YOU'LL BE ABLE TO DISTRIBUTE AND THAT TO YOU AND THAT YOU DISTRIBUTED, WE CAN ABSOLUTELY SHARE IT, BUT TALK TO PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW, JUST, JUST RIGHT NOW, TALK TO YOUR NEIGHBORS, HAVE PEOPLE START GETTING EXCITED ABOUT IT.

JUST SAY, IT'S COMING, IT'S COMING IN THE WINDOW.

DON'T KNOW WHEN YET JUST STAY TOO, BUT ASK THEM, YOU KNOW, IF THAT WERE HAPPENING AT THE PLAZA, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE? WHAT I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT AS A 27 YEAR RESIDENT OF BERLIN IS THE IDEA OF SEEING EVERYBODY IN OUR ARTS MENU.

[00:45:01]

BECAUSE I KNOW WHEN I GO TO THEM, I DON'T SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO WOULD LIKE ME.

AND, YOU KNOW, I AM A PERSON WHO GOES TO ARTS VENUES IN DALLAS, ALL OF THAT.

THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT.

YOU KNOW, SO NOW THAT WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE IN FEEL WELCOME AND THINK BACK TO OUR MISSION, YOU KNOW, TO REACH AND TEACH AND WELCOME WHAT A GREAT PARTNER CULTURAL ARTS IS FOR US, BECAUSE FINALLY EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE WELL AND INVITED.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR MR. FISHER? WE'RE THINKING ONCE A MONTH, UM, WHERE THE CALENDAR BEFORE I CAME TO THE CALENDAR WAS GENERALLY BOOKED A YEAR IN ADVANCE.

SO WE HAVE CURRENT CALENDAR BOOKINGS REALLY THROUGH SUMMER OF 22.

SO RIGHT NOW WE'RE KIND OF SQUEEZING SOME THINGS IN HERE AND THERE.

UM, BUT WE CAN RE WE'VE, WE'VE GOT A CALENDAR FOR AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH THROUGH, UH, THROUGH STARTING IN JANUARY.

THERE COULD BE, HE HAVE A RECOMMENDATION MAYBE.

OH, I'M JUST SAYING, LIKE, IF WE'RE GOING TO PUT THAT IN A MOVIE, YOU JUST WATCHED A MOVIE ABOUT LIKE BOLLYWOOD AND LEAVE ABOUT THEIR DAY, OR LIKE, ARE WE GOING TO BRING SOMEONE EDUCATED OF THAT CULTURE TO, OKAY.

MY PERSONAL OPINION IS THAT THAT'S WHAT MAKES THE FILM SPECIAL? IS IT GIVING THEM BENEFITS JUST 10 OR 15 MINUTES? A LITTLE BIT OF PERSPECTIVE, A LITTLE BIT OF INFORMATION WHERE THIS FILM CAME FROM.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT DIRECTORS? THE ACTORS ARE GOOD.

YEAH.

BUT IT'S BRAND NEW.

SO IF YOU KNOW, THIS IS A BUILDING, KNOW IF YOU WERE TO RECOMMEND THE FILM, WHO WOULD YOU ASK TO SPEAK? WOULD YOU WANT SOMEONE FROM LIKE ONE OF THE COLLEGES OR NO, JUST TO FILM, YOU WOULD RECOMMEND, OH, FABULOUS.

I THINK WE'RE JUST TALKING.

NO, THAT'S, THAT'S A REAL THING THAT THAT'S AN INCLUSION POINT.

SO YES, UH, BALANCE, AND I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S BEEN GOING ON, BUT SOMEONE FROM THAT COMMUNITY TO HELP WITH THE ASIAN JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL THAT DIRECTION.

AND WE'VE GOT FILM PROFESSORS AT EVERY COLLEGE IN THE AREA, INCLUDING DALLAS COLLEGE.

SO, YOU KNOW, AND WE HAVE PERFORMERS AND WE, I MEAN, WE HAVE ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THIS COMMUNITY.

SO I THINK, I DON'T THINK THAT'S A, THAT'S A DIFFICULT, I JUST DON'T KNOW.

YOU CAN CREATE A DISCUSSION OR LIKE SHORT LITTLE 20 MINUTE LECTURE.

YOU'RE PROBABLY NOT GOING TO GET FAMILIES TO, SINCE THOSE SILVER TWENTIES.

SO YOU PROBABLY HAVE LIKE A 10 MINUTE INTRO AND THEN AN OPPORTUNITY FOR AN AFTER.

JUST LIKE WE KNEW IT WAS YOU GO TO A THEATER TO A PLAY THAT PEOPLE CAN STAY AFTER FOR A TALK BACK THEN.

YEAH.

OH YEAH.

THAT WAS .

AND WITH THAT BEING SAID IN SO FAR AS OFFICIAL, AND I UNDERSTAND YOU GOT SOME TALKING ABOUT FILMS, THEY HAD LITTLE SNIPPETS OF DIFFERENT EVENTS FOR THAT CULTURE THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR IN GARLAND OR OVER THE YEARS AND GARLANDS OF PREVIOUS CROSS PROMOTING FUTURE.

I LOVE THAT FOR SURE.

THIS IS A GOOD PLACE FOR YOU TO READ.

AND IN THE MOVIE I SAID COCO OR WHATEVER THAT WAS VERY WELL DONE.

IT REALLY SHOWED WHAT THE OTHER LOOK, WHAT THAT WAS ABOUT.

UM, AND YOU KNOW, I WAS BROUGHT UP WITH THAT, BUT GO TO THE CEMETERY, THAT KIND OF STUFF.

AND MY GRANDKIDS SAW IT.

AND ONE OF THEM HE'S 10 NOW.

SO HE WAS EIGHT AT THE TIME WAS SO IMPRESSED THAT HE SAID, CAN WE DO THAT? CAN WE CELEBRATE THAT? SO I SAID, OKAY, IF YOU HELPED ME.

SO WE GOT SOME BOXES, WE DECORATED THEM, WE MADE AN ALTAR, WE BROUGHT ALL THIS PICTURES OF ALL RELATIVES THAT WERE DEAD.

AND WE DID THE LITTLE COLOR VEDAS.

AND THEN THE WEEK HE, I SAID, WE WENT, WE NEED TO PUT FLOWERS.

I SAID, WE CAN BUY SOME.

HE SAID, NO, LET'S MAKE THEM.

SO WE MAKE THE PAPER FLOWERS.

I MEAN, IT WAS, WE INVITED THE WHOLE FAMILY AND WE HAD FOOD THERE AND WE HAD FOOD FOR US TO EAT.

AND IT WAS, YOU KNOW, THEN WE EXPLAINED IT TO EVERYBODY AND THAT MOVIE WAS VERY WELL DONE.

AND SO SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

AND

[00:50:01]

THEN YOU HAVE SOMEBODY TALK ABOUT IT AND, YOU KNOW, MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT, YOU KNOW, WE'RE, WE'RE NOT THERE JUST TO HAVE A PICNIC WE'RE WE'RE TO CELEBRATE THE IMPORTANCE OF THAT TRADITION.

THE WHY IS ALWAYS THE STORY.

SO I LOVE THAT.

YOU SO COOL.

LIKE, IF WE GOT LIKE, IF IT WAS ABOUT THAT, LIKE YOUR, YOUR GRANDSON OR WHOEVER, IT WAS LIKE, EVEN LIKE KIDS, LIKE TO BE ABLE TO COME AND SPEAK ABOUT LIKE YOUR CULTURE OR LIKE TO STUDENTS OR SOMETHING.

I THINK THAT WOULD BE LIKE, THAT WOULD MAKE THEIR FRIENDS GO.

THAT WOULD MAKE THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS CAN, THAT WOULD MAKE, ANYTIME YOU PUT A CHILD IN FRONT OF THE NUMBER OF ATTENDEES, BOTTOM LINE, IT'S LIKE, YOU WILL NEVER SEE ANYTHING MORE WELL ATTENDED THAN AN EVENT FEATURING STUDENTS.

YEAH.

UM, I DID HAVE A QUESTION.

DO YOU HAVE A LIST OF, OR DO WE HAVE A LIST OF LIKE, UM, GROCERY STORES? UM, BECAUSE GARLAND IS, THERE'S A LOT OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF GROCERY STORES.

AND I THINK THAT LIKE, UM, I KNOW FOR LIKE THE INDIAN GROCERY STORES WE HAVE HERE, THERE'S BUSINESS CARDS AND THERE'S FLYERS IN THE FRONT WHERE THE REGISTERS ARE AT.

SO I THINK THAT JUST MIGHT ALSO BE A GOOD, UM, LIKE WAY OF ADVERTISING IN A WAY OF GETTING PEOPLE'S ATTENTION BY JUST TALKING TO THE CHAMBER, THE GARLAND CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PROBABLY DOES SECRET SPOT.

SEE, RENEE KNOWS THAT.

I THINK WE COULD PROBABLY GET THAT.

JUST BE LIKE, YEAH, I BET WE COULD.

I MEAN, BECAUSE I DON'T THINK THAT HAS EXISTED, BUT THAT'S A BRILLIANT APPROACH AND THAT IS A PLACE, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF TIMES, AND WE'VE BEEN UP AGAINST THIS MORE THAN ONCE.

PEOPLE MAY NOT USE THE INTERNET.

PEOPLE MAY NOT USE FACEBOOK.

PEOPLE MAY NOT FOLLOW A CERTAIN PAGE OR WHATEVER.

A LOT OF COMMUNITIES, THE WAY TO COMMUNICATE IS DIFFERENT.

AND THAT COULD BE A REALLY GOOD THING.

IT'S KIND OF LIKE SENIORS, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE GETTING READY TO CLOSE THE SENIOR CENTER FOR RENOVATIONS, AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GET THINGS OVER TO GAYLE FIELDS FOR, TO BE ABLE TO REACH PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT LOOKING AT THE KIND OF SAME PANIC COMMUNICATION.

SO IT'S REALLY ABOUT OUTREACH.

I LOVE THAT.

SO A GROCERY STRESS LIST, THEY WOULD ALSO, YOU KNOW, AND I'M SPEAKING AS A, AS A MINORITY, A LOT OF TIMES, LIKE THE DOWNTOWN AREA BUT AT ONE TIME IT WAS, OH, THAT'S FOR THEM.

AND THERE'S STILL THAT MENTALITY, YOU KNOW? NO, THAT DOWNTOWN AREA THAT'S THAT'S FOR THEM.

THAT'S NOT FOR US.

I GO OVER HERE, A LITTLE MIXING AND I CALL IT THE MEXICAN GROCERY STORE BY MY HOUSE.

THEY WILL PRODUCT IN THE LINE AND DUCK CREEK, THEY HAVE THE BEST CUP OF COFFEE.

EXACTLY.

IT'S A WEEK.

YEAH.

SO THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO BRING ACROSS THAT.

IT'S A WEED, NOT AS WE NEED TO TAKE A GROUP PICTURE, YOU KNOW, THIS COMMISSION LOOKS SO GOOD BECAUSE WE LOOK LIKE DARWIN.

YEAH.

UM, I THINK WE CAN EVEN NOT JUST ADVERTISING, IF YOU CONTACT STORES ABOUT LIKE THE COMMUNITY OR THE NEEDS OF THE, WHETHER THAT'S LIKE A THANKSGIVING OR LIKE A, SOMETHING WHERE IT'S LIKE, THERE'S SOMETHING, THERE'S SOMETHING OF NEED DONATIONS WILL HAPPEN.

AND LIKE, IF YOU BRING, IF WE LIKE, SAY LIKE, UM, THERE'S SOMETHING HAPPENING AT FIESTA OR LIKE, YOU KNOW, AT, UM, TIE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, WHERE IT'S LIKE BRINGING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER, THEN IT'S LIKE INFLUENCING LIKE, OH, THIS IS NOT JUST FOR THEM.

CAUSE LIKE MY MOM, LIKE, EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE INDIAN STORIES, WE GO TO EVERYTHING, OKAY.

GO TO EACH STORE, THAT'S AVAILABLE.

CAUSE WE'LL GET JACK FOOD AT HALFTIME OR WHATEVER, AND THEN WE'LL COME.

AND, UM, WE'LL GO TO FIESTA FOR ALL OF OUR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, LIKE THE INDIAN, INDIAN GROCERY STORES.

BUT I THINK YOU MAKE A GOOD POINT THERE ON A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT THINGS BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, AS WE LOOK FOR WHATEVER WE'RE GOING TO DO, OUR BUDGET IS NEGLIGIBLE.

WE'RE GOING TO NEED SPONSORSHIP AND THE SPONSORSHIP WILL COME FROM ALL OF THESE COMMUNITIES.

SO CONNECTING FOR THAT AND FOR THIS EVENT AS WELL, BECAUSE ONE OF THE THINGS THAT CULTURAL ARTS IS LOOKING AT, YOU KNOW, THEY HAVE TO LICENSE THE FILMS. THERE'S, THERE'S, UH, A BUDGET FOR THAT, BUT IT CAN'T, YOU KNOW, AND THE PERCEIVED VALUE IS DIFFERENT.

IT WILL NOT BE FREE TO THE PUBLIC, BUT IT WILL BE REASONABLE.

AND YOU KNOW, SO WE'RE GOING TO NEED SPONSORSHIP TO HELP DEFRAY SOME OF THOSE COSTS AS WELL.

BUT BUILDING THOSE RELATIONSHIPS WITH VARIOUS BUSINESSES AND TO ME, THE LOW HANGING FRUIT IS THE RESTAURANTS.

THE FOODIES SHE'D HAVE EVERY SINGLE TYPE OF RESTAURANT KNOWN TO MAN.

SO, YOU KNOW, GETTING THE RESTAURANTS TO PARTICIPATE,

[00:55:01]

BUT MOSAIC IS ONE THING, GETTING THEM TO THE HOUSE SPONSORS WHILE WE'RE LEADING UP TO THAT.

IT'S NOT A BAD THING.

AND THE SNACKS THAT WE CAN HAVE DURING THE THINGS WE TALKED ABOUT THAT, BECAUSE LIKE, IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO A BOLLYWOOD NIGHT, THERE ARE SO MANY INDIAN LIKE STREET FOOD OR SNACKS THAT JUST LIKE INSTEAD OF POPCORN OR LIKE, AND JUST BEING ABLE TO GET THE INDIAN RESTAURANTS OR LIKE, UM, ANY TYPE OF RESTAURANTS WITH ACCORDINGLY TO LIKE GET IN SNACKS AND LIKE HAVE A WAY THAT THEY'RE SHOWING THEIR FACE.

AND LIKE, YOU KNOW, TODAY WE TALKED ABOUT THE YOUTH COUNCIL BEING ABLE TO COOK, TO FUNDRAISE THROUGH THE CONCESSION SO THAT THAT'S THE WAY TO BRING THEM.

AND THEN AGAIN, IF THEY'RE BRINGING THE YOUTH COUNCIL, PARENTS GO WHERE THEIR CHILDREN ARE.

YES.

CAUSE SHE ALREADY KNOWS THAT VERY WELL, DOING ALL THE NAACP TO THAT, YES.

PARENTS GO WHERE THEIR CHILDREN DO.

SO THAT'S ANOTHER, SO IS EVERYONE GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET SOME FILM IDEAS AND FILM IDEAS FROM FRIENDS BACK TO DAVID AND YOU SAID THERE'S GOING TO BE A FORM, RIGHT? YEAH.

OKAY.

AND THEN WE CAN HAVE LIKE, YEAH, YOU'VE GOT THIS.

YOU CAN'T, YOU CAN USE THIS, BUT YEAH, THERE WILL BE A LINK THAT WE CAN SHARE LATER AND WE CAN DO THAT INTO A QR CODE IF WE DO LIKE FLYERS AND STUFF AS WELL.

RIGHT.

AND WE, AND WE CAN PUT IT ON EVERYTHING THAT WE'VE GOT TO.

OKAY.

SO I GUESS I, I, I NEED SOMEONE TO MAKE A MOTION TO SUPPORT THE MOSAIC FILM FESTIVAL.

I MOVED THERE WE GO FORWARD WITH THE MOSAIC, UM, AND DETERMINED, YOU KNOW, THE DATE OF THE LAWYER DATE OR TIME.

BUT WITH THE IDEA THAT AT LEAST WITHIN A YEAR, THAT'S THE BIG FESTIVAL.

I NEED ONE FOR THE FILM FESTIVAL.

I MOVED TO MAKE A MOTION TO SUPPORT THE MUSIC FESTIVAL VERY WELL SHIPPED BY JUSTINE, A JAMES SECOND BY JENNIFER, ALL IN FAVOR.

OPPOSED.

THANK YOU, DAVID.

THE CULTURAL COMMISSION IS DELIGHTED TO SUPPORT THE MOSAIC FILM FESTIVAL BEFORE MR. OFFICIALESE.

I WOULD JUST LIKE FOR ALL YOU ALL TO KNOW THAT HE WAS DETERMINED TO GIVE HERE ONE TIME HE HAD NOT PASSED EACH OTHER.

I COULD SEE THE LOOK ON HIS FACE.

HE WAS TORN BETWEEN DINNER GENTLEMEN AND HOLDING THE DOOR FOR ME.

TO PICK IT UP.

I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO THE SAME PLACES AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS.

I LOVE IT.

THAT'S AWESOME.

OKAY.

WE GOT A LOT OF AGENDA HERE.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, DAVID.

AND THANKS FOR COMING.

WE'RE THRILLED STAFF REPORTS IN THE PAST, EACH MEMBER HAD THEIR OWN BUSINESS CARDS.

AND SO I JUST, BEFORE ORDERED THEM FOR EVERY ONE OF YOU, BECAUSE YOUR BUDGET ANNUALLY IS $5,000.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU GUYS WERE SURE YOU WANTED TO DO THAT BECAUSE YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT ADVERTISING AND THINGS AND MAYBE PUTTING SOMETHING IN THE MAIL.

DO WE STILL WANT TO SPEND THOSE DOLLARS FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE CARDS? I STILL HAVE SOME, SO I'M FINE.

OR MAYBE I JUST NEED TO BUY THAT DOES NOT HAVE THEM.

AND I'M NOT ASKING YOU FOR WHAT, WHAT ARE WE SPENDING ON THEM? THEY'RE ABOUT $34.

SO CAN THAT'S HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS.

AND THE SITE IS HOW MANY WILL HAVE.

WELL, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, SO LATELY ANYMORE, I USE MY ELECTRONIC BUSINESS CARDS.

I WAS IN MY REGULAR ONE.

I THINK WE CAN MAKE YOU LEARN CODE BUSINESS.

I WAS ALSO GOING TO ASK, CAN WE JUST DO IT ELECTRONICALLY? YOU DON'T HAVE AN OPTION TO GO LIST AND FOLLOW THEM.

YEAH.

YOU PROBABLY COULD ORDER LESS.

BUT THE PRINTING COST IS STILL ONCE THE, YEAH.

SO THE SETUP COST IS THE SAME, BUT THE PRINT RUN IS DIFFERENT.

BUT IF YOU THINK ABOUT HOW MUCH YOU USE BUSINESS CARDS ANYMORE, I LITERALLY DO.

I MEAN, I HAVE THE BUSINESS CARDS AND I DON'T, PEOPLE DON'T WANT BUSINESS CARDS AND I DON'T TAKE THEM ANYMORE.

I'M LIKE, YOU KNOW, I MAY TAKE A PICTURE OF IT OR YOU CAN HAVE A QR CODE, ELECTRONIC BUSINESS CARD.

NOW, IF YOU WANT BUSINESS CARDS, THAT'S SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

DOES ANYONE WANT BUSINESS CARDS LIKE TO HAVE SOME, ALTHOUGH I'M A, YOU'RE A LITTLE YOUNGER, ME AND THE INTERNET AND PHONES WITH MY CUP OF TEA.

[01:00:01]

SO I WRITE MY NUMBER ON THE BAG.

YEAH.

I USE, I USE MY CAR 20, 21 THING YOU SEE FOR ME, LIKE I SAID, I ONLY KNOW WHAT I WANT.

I'M NOT GOING TO MAKE THE DECISION FOR YOU.

SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE BUSINESS CARDS, I'M CERTAIN THAT WE COULD SUPPORT THAT.

I JUST DON'T NEED THEM.

CAN I FIND A GOOD IDEA OF WHEN YOU MEET SOMEONE AT AN EVENT AND IT WAS ON THE BACK OF THE CAR, OR EVEN JUST GIVING A LITTLE INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE ON THE BACK OF THE CAR SO THAT THEY TIE YOU TO THAT MESSAGE.

THEY REMEMBERED YOU, YOU WROTE SOME NICE.

I EVEN DO THAT AT RESTAURANTS, BUT THAT WORKS FOR YOU.

I'M NOT, OH, I HAVE ONE.

I CAN SHOW YOU.

I USE MY LIKE CRAZY, YOU KNOW, I MEET HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE.

WHY YOU USE YOUR WORK BUSINESS CARD SOMETIMES CAM YEAH.

OH, MAYBE A HUNDRED OR SO-CALLED SO WE DON'T HAVE, THERE'S NOT A, UH, CULTURAL, UH, NUMBER, LIKE FOR PEOPLE TO GET THE EMAIL ADDRESS.

YEAH.

AND THAT'S FINE.

AND THAT'S, AND THAT'S THE POINT.

SO THIS IS LIKE A PERSONAL CARD WITH A MULTICULTURAL LOGO.

IT'S NOT, YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS.

YOU DON'T HAVE A CITY PHONE NUMBER.

YOU DON'T HAVE, OTHER THAN HER SUPPORT AT THESE MEETINGS.

THAT'S THE, YEAH.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANYONE DEDICATED TO, SO WE DON'T THE LIGHT.

NO, NOTHING ELSE, NO OTHER CONTACT FACEBOOK PAGE OR ANYTHING.

AND IT'S LIKE, IF THERE'S A QR CODE, YOU KNOW, ON THERE AND PEOPLE ARE SAYING, IF WE JUST SAID THAT ON THERE, AND IT'S GENERIC FOR EVERYBODY TO THE WEBPAGE, I MEAN, THAT'D BE AWAKE.

THAT'D BE GOOD ON THE BUSINESS CARD TO HAVE A QR CODE SOUND, THE SAME INFORMATION IN A QR CODE WHERE THEY COULD DO WHATEVER IT IS.

YOU GOT ONE.

BUT I KNOW WE HAVE TO LOOK AT IT.

RIGHT.

YEAH.

YEAH.

SO I DIDN'T JUST WANT TO GO THROUGH AND JUST, YEAH.

SO LET'S INVESTIGATE AND, AND, YOU KNOW, UNDERSTAND THE COST AND WHO WOULD LIKE PRINTED BUSINESS CARDS? I DON'T THINK THAT ANYONE IS GOING TO SERVE LONG.

I MEAN, I WILL PROBABLY BE IN THE GROUND BEFORE YOU USE 500 OF THEM.

RIGHT.

BECAUSE PEOPLE DON'T, YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE PASSING OUT BUSINESS CARDS, IT'S BECAUSE YOU JUST LIKE THE HAND PEOPLE PAY FOR IT.

BUT YOU DO, YOU DO NEED THE 25 TO FIT THE 50 TO A HUNDRED.

I SEE THAT WHEN I DON'T SEE AS FINE, FINE FOR TWO OR THREE YEARS.

YEAH.

YEAH.

AND MAYBE I'M DOWN TO ABOUT THAT.

SO MAYBE DROPPING DOWN, DROPPING TO TWO 50 AND FINDING OUT WHO REALLY WANTS THEM PRINTED AND THEN WE'LL FIGURE OUT WHAT TO PUT OUT NOW.

OKAY.

SO THEN CAN WE ASK, WHO WANTS THEM TO NOW? OR DO WE DO, WE DON'T HAVE EVERYBODY HERE, BUT EVERYONE HERE CAN CERTAINLY SPEAK UP.

YES, NO, NO.

IT'S OKAY.

IT'S OKAY.

IT'S OKAY FOR WHO'S THE TARGET GROUP THAT WORKS AND THEN, YOU KNOW, ANYONE WHO, AND THEN ANYONE WHO DOES, YOU KNOW, CAN SAY YES, I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE IT AND WE'VE GOT TO FIGURE OUT WHAT GOES ON AND EVERYONE WILL GET THE ELECTRONIC ONE AND WE'LL FIGURE THAT THAT WOULD BE GOOD.

AND YET, UM, RENEE, YOU SAID THAT YOU COULD FIND SOMEBODY TO SET THAT OR WE COULD TRY AND FIND SOMEBODY TO SET UP A LITTLE 20 MARKETING CAN DO IT.

THAT DOROTHY'S GOT PEOPLE WHO CAN DO ALL KINDS OF STUFF.

OKAY.

SO NEXT GUY, NOW THAT'S A GREAT IDEA.

IF WE SWAP CARS AND HAND OUT EACH OTHER'S CARDS, OKAY.

IS THERE A WAY THAT, LIKE THE QR CODE THAT WE DO HAVE, OR IF IT'S LIKE, LIKE YOU WERE SAYING, LIKE, IF IT'S A FACEBOOK PAGE OR SOMETHING WHERE IT'LL HAVE OUR, IF WE'RE WILLING TO HAVE OUR INFORMATION ON THE LIST, SO THAT IT'S LIKE A, IT'S A UNIVERSAL AND MAYBE EVEN OUR PICTURES SO PEOPLE CAN SEE OUR INDUSTRY, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT WITH A QR CODE, QR CODE.

HE GOES TO THE WEBSITE AND THEN WE'RE LISTED THERE.

YOUR CARD IS A GENERIC CARD.

WE GIVE IT TO THEM.

THEY SCAN, THEY GO TO THE WEBSITE AND THEN THEY FIND US, THEY'RE GOING TO SAY,

[01:05:01]

YOU CAN ONLY ORDER IF IT'S A GENERIC.

IT SAYS CMC, THAT THAT WORKS TOO, BUT WE'LL HAVE OUR INFORMATION.

AND IT'LL THAT WEBSITE CAN CHANGE FOR THAT QR CODE.

LIKE, YOU KNOW, THE INFORMATION THAT WEBSITE, WELL, THE, THE GOOD THING ABOUT THAT IS IT, YOU KNOW, THE WEBPAGE UPDATES, THE QR CODE DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE TURNOVER IN THIS COMMISSION ALONE.

AND IF ANYONE ATTENDED THE COMMISSIONS OF BOARD AND COMMISSIONS DINNER, EVERY SINGLE COMMISSION HAD A HUGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO TURNED OVER.

IF WE'RE ORDERING 500 CARDS FOR PEOPLE WHO WERE SERVING ONE YEAR, THAT'S JUST THROWING MONEY AWAY TWO MONTHS, SOMETIME TWO MONTHS.

YEAH.

AND, AND IT'S, YOU KNOW, IT'S NO, NO HARM, NO FOUL, BUT IT'S LIKE, HOW SHOULD YOU USE THE RESOURCES THAT YOU HAVE? I THINK WE'LL FIND THINGS THAT WE NEED SHORT ORDER.

IT HAS BEEN PLACED, UM, AT LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE IN AMERICA, SUPPLY CHAIN, SUPPLY CHAIN, REALLY.

AND I'M NOT JUST SAYING IT'S BEEN PLACED WITH THE VENDOR AND THE MIDNIGHT WILL YOU WANT IT IS HARD TO FIND RIGHT NOW, BUT SHE'S STILL WORKING WITH HER SOURCES.

AND I BET YOU WILL HAVE THEM IN JANUARY, BUT I'M NOT MAKING PROMISES, BUT SHE'S JUST HAVING DIFFICULT TOO.

BUT THEY'VE ALL BEEN ORDERED IN THE SIZE OF THE TASK.

I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW IN DEPTH.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

YOU SHOULD DO IT.

SHOULD IT BE COME UP WITH A SECOND COLOR JUST IN CASE? WELL, THE ONLY ONE THAT HAPPENS, THEN YOU START LOOKING FOR THAT ONE TOO.

SO BY THE TIME WE HAVE AN OFFICIAL EVENT OF WHERE THE, WHICH I THINK IS PROBABLY THE MLK PARADE, WE'LL HAVE WHAT WE NEED.

EXACTLY.

YOU'RE GOING TO .

YEAH, I THINK WE'LL BE ALL RIGHT.

AND I DIDN'T MEAN TO BE DISMISSIVE.

THAT'S LEGITIMATE, BUT IT'S LIKE, WRITE DOWN ANYTIME YOU'RE LOOKING FOR ANYTHING.

IF YOU SAY, OKAY, LET'S CHANGE THIS.

IF WE CAN FIND SOMETHING ELSE, YOU CAN LOOK JUST AS HARD FOR THAT TO NOTHING IS COMING.

OKAY.

THE PROSPECTIVE MEDIA PROJECT WE DID NOT MEET, WE DID NOT MEET.

AND YOU NEED THE, OKAY, GOOD.

MINDY HAS AGREED TO STEP UP AND HANDLE THAT.

AS I SAID, IN OUR LAST MEETING, I DON'T HAVE TIME AND I PROVED IT.

YOU KNOW, I TRIED.

I, AND SO MAYBE HE HAS AGREED TO STEP UP.

SO AT HOME WE'LL HAVE A MEETING.

WE WILL HAVE AN UPDATE FOR OUR NEXT MEETING.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

MINDY UPDATE ON REQUEST TO HAVE A LISA MORALES PROVIDE INFORMATION ON WHEN NEEDLES, UH, I SPOKE WITH ELISA AFTER YOUR LAST MEETING.

AND SHE SAID,
