The True Value Chain of The Arts and Its Production on the
It started as a drive around Coronado’s mysterious unknowns to develop a story for “Who Dunnit” A Coronado Mystery for kids and their families to participate in and unravel the mystery! This essential annual school fundraiser for the Arts and STEM, normally in person, was transformed into a live virtual broadcast ‘mystery detective’ experience, safely from home!
The best part of this experience was collaborating within the community of San Diego ‘America’s Finest City’ to bring together an amazing production team; Finest City Entertainment, Taylor Way Productions and Highly Dope Media. Fundraising for kids to one day do the exact foundational production it took to put it on.
The ironic part is “The Arts” and “Its Production” is one of the most heavily impacted industries right now during the pandemic, and the individuals who go into these fields LOVE their careers. So, individuals who love what they do, not having the support they need through a pandemic, is an example of a broken link in our societies ‘value supply chain!’ A broken link in an industry that definitely needs a voice! The incorporation of ‘value supply chains’ and ‘sustainable supply chains’ we have to ask the question, what does this all mean in the facets of communities going forward? These ‘corrected supply chains’ have not been standard practice, so can we catch up with traditional ‘business supply chain models’ and replace them after the fact?
“The Arts” and “Its Production” is so vital to society! So! This is a reminder, as we fundraiser for youth to get into fields they LOVE and follow passions which allow them to thrive as a ‘whole child;’ to remember all aspects a part of the production process! To account for each step A to Z for the final product, especially when we want to know the real value supply chain.
And what a wonderful production and collaboration it was with amazing talent who LOVE what they do Fale Luis, Lindsay Scoggins, Julian Lopez, Jordon Jacobo, Shannon Taylor, Anthony Maze, Sidney Franklin, and Connie Marie Chiarelli.
What was traditionally a big gala at the Hotel Del Coronado was turned into a beautiful virtual production for the whole community to enjoy, while fundraising for The Arts and STEM.
Schools are not automatically given funds for these essential programs. Maybe that’s the area where we need to start in the value supply chain? Revamping our ‘education system models’ and their supply chains. Set an example for other industries. Taking into account the effectiveness of what is offered for youth across the board in their education.
A great closing story in this production! A CUSD Alumni assisted with fixing a coding issue within the CSF Silent Auction software system 10 minutes before going live. Their love of computer science and coding was provided because of CSF funding.
This is an appreciation of community coming together, the teams, the talent, and the hard work it took to get there! Combined with a passion for youth educational needs and developmental experiences, while truly understanding and collectively learning, how to design that future!
A True Value Supply Chain!
