What a pleasant surprise to see such a positive response to last week’s Arts Admin Merit Badge article I published at ArtsHacker. By far, the most common question was if the merit badges were actually available.
Desire was intense. Here’s one of my favs:
I’M SERIOUS I WANT THEM. AND I WANT TO WEAR THEM LIKE FLAIR.
How can you say no to someone using an Office Space reference and all caps?
Consequently, I am happy to announce Arts Admin Merit Badges will become a thing in the form of laptop stickers. And while plans are still fluid, I anticipate two ways you can get them:
- Meet me in person. I’ll bring them along to all my conference, workshop, and lecturing appearances. You can find where I’ll be via my Where’s Waldo? style event schedule or keep an eye out for announcements here at Adaptistration. Or if you live in the Chicago area, find a way to cross my path.
- Order them. This one is still taking shape but assuming it isn’t too difficult to keep up with, I’ll make shipped versions available for sale online. #BestStaffGiftsEver
