Since the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve taken some time to internally reflect on our growth as a company, past milestones, & the impact we’re creating in the arts community.
As a young, ambitious startup – it’s easy to get caught up in the moment.
We always have a lot going on & while we’re focused on the journey ahead – we wanted to be more intentional & transparent in how we document, celebrate, & share our past work.
2019 was a HUGE year for REC.
In addition to those milestones, we’re proud of the work our team is doing behind the scenes to pump money back into the local creative economy. Our Agency & Programming teams have been responsible for booking talent around the city, planning & executing events, and project managing marketing campaigns to provide paid client work for our most talented members.
We wanted to take a moment to celebrate & showcase that work because far too often companies “talk” about local impact…but don’t really “show” local impact. With that being said, we’re proud to share our 2019 Impact Report – that outlines the types of projects we managed, the number of artists we booked, & the amount of money we paid out to local creators. A big thank you to everyone that contributed — you’re the reason why we do this.

2020 was far from what we anticipated the first year in our new space to look like. We opened, we closed, we evolved our product, we furloughed our team, and had a chance to open yet again.
Whew. What a past few months it’s been. One thing is for sure – it’s now more important than ever that creators are developing their businesses to live life on their own terms.
