We are very excited to announce that we have chosen Madame Walker Theatre Center as our 2010 24 Hour Web Project recipient! The Madame Walker Theatre Center is an Indianapolis non-profit whose mission is to preserve and perpetuate the legacies of its namesake, Madam C.J. Walker by becoming the primary provider of African-American arts in the Midwest. Both our teams will come together for 24 contiguous hours to redesign and develop a new, dynamic Web site for the non-profit in 2010.
Jeb Banner, our CEO, is very excited about the challenge and partnership with Madame Walker, “Although we had many great applicants for our second 24 Hour Web Project challenge, we chose Madame Walker Theatre Center because of their historical commitment to promote creativity and community in Indianapolis.” Banner states, “Also, we thought it would be fun to set up on their stage!”
Identical to our inaugural 24 Hour Web Project challenge (www.secondhelpings.org), our team will have 24 hours to design, develop, optimize and launch the new site - no exceptions or extensions.
“We greatly appreciate being selected to partner with Small Box to enhance the appearance, scope, and functionality of our web presence,” says Christopher Barney, Chair of the Madame Walker Theatre Center Board of Directors.
Barney goes on to state, “This is an incredible opportunity for us to better serve our diverse audiences, supporters and the community. An enhanced, expanded, more user-friendly site will allow the MWTC not only to share our excitement about the impressive variety of planned artistic and cultural programs and performances, but also to broaden our influence, and expose and involve website visitors in the educational, philanthropic, and entrepreneurial legacies of the Center’s namesake."
