April 14, 2020 TBD: Help us thank our local heroes!

In this time of a public health crisis when most of us can retreat into the safety of our homes during the shelter-in-place order, brave health care workers step up, risk exposure to COVID-19, and care for the sick. Rochester Art Center and the community of local artists want to recognize and thank them for their bravery. Twenty local artists will create portraits of twenty health care workers who put their lives at risk for the greater health of us all. These portraits will be displayed in an exhibition upon the reopening of the Rochester Art Center. Accompanying each portrait will be a story about each of them. This project is designed to honor our community’s heroes by sharing their stories through art.

  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production

  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
