Founded in 2016, Limeadestand Works empowers people by facilitating a process of discovering their own voices and personal power, curating their stories, and helping them reclaim their own inner sparks. We are a public relations and brand communications service for independent artists, crafters, and makers who seek a path toward their own creative liberation.
We promote human dignity through micro-enterprise.
Limeadestand Works’ program is three-fold:
1. Discover one’s sparks and restore human dignity through our Personal Narratives Studio–a cross between personal branding consultation and spiritual directions.
2. At our Creative Liberation Lab, learn how to start and run one’s own small business with little or no start-up capital requirement, even if you have zero access to banking or financing. The academy provides personalized mentorship, continuing access to support, and a community of peers on the journey.
3. For new and established businesses (and community organizations) we offer comprehensive brand communications and brand management service, from facilitated brainstorming sessions at the inception stage to long-range brand engagement and public relations. This includes content creations and curation, social media strategy and management, event planning, and other components to help business owners communicate their stories and share their experiences with an engaged audience.
In 2018, we have opened the Floy Preslar Gallery, where emerging visual artists can gain professional experiences as a working, exhibiting artist and develop their artistic career. In conjuction with the gallery’s mission to discover and showcase emerging artists, we also help foster a vibrant arts and cultural scene in Columbia County, Oregon.
The founder brings to the world a unique combination of her unconventional life experiences as a journalist, a visual artist, a graphic designer, a political activist, a community organizer, a world citizen, a theologian, and a clergyperson–who has experienced both a life of privilege and that of an extreme poverty. The works of Limeadestand Works is rooted in both religious and political values for the liberation of every human being.
We also welcome new and continuing partnership with a wide variety of community groups, faith communities, and social enterprises to further our missions.
