    I think we need to have a mission statement of sorts both for the website and for the packets. We have pieces from the past that we can pull from. Does anyone want to take this on or lay down some bones for us to add to? Inform people of what Indidjinus is and how it started, what the goal is, etc…

    Not a mission statement but a way to tie together all of our info and paper work, a summary or something. A topic statement, conclusive statement, a way to make all of this stuff fluid…

    I meant to put this on the agenda for the last meeting. Something short and sweet would be best.

    Yes but it needs more than that. 🙂

    What do you mean by more? Longer? More descriptive?

    Ok then we probably need to work on at least 2 things.  A mission statement which is short like Dennis’ submission and what you are looking for.

    Hey Stacy –  Is this something for the membership packets? I’m just a little unclear of the audience/ purpose. I pulled together language from a few sources to compile something (below). Were you thinking something along these lines?

    —————————-
    In-Didj-In-Us is an organization dedicated to the promotion of the music, culture and crafting of the didgeridoo. Founded by Chad Butler in 1996 in Scio, Oregon, it has grown to become the largest international didgeridoo gathering on the west coast (or the u.s.?). Each year musicians, friends and didgeridoo enthusiasts attend from all corners of the world, in an intimate setting where everyone can learn from and teach one another. This year, there are two opportunities to experience In-Didj-In-Us.

    One opportunity is the conference, a member-based gathering where attendees take their love of the didj to a new level. This will be held at Neal Creek Resort  on August 12-14, just outside of Scio. This will be limited in size (200 people), and have a more intimate feel. The conference fee is $150.

    The second opportunity is the In-Didj-In-Us festival. The festival will be held on August 19-21 at the familiar location of Prindel Creek Farm. The festival can accommodate more people, has a large outdoor kitchen, and will share many of the same musicians that play at the conference. The festival fee is $50 in advance, and $75 at the gate.

    Both events will host small workshops, small-scale vending of handcrafted and unique musical instruments, and performances by some of the world’s most renowned musicians. Both will be sure to leave participants amazed by the talent being displayed by performers on the stage or around the campfire at night. This is an environment in which every person becomes a leader, teacher and student. There are plenty of big names that attend but here every person is a shining star.

    Reviving this thread

    Indidjinus: Dedicated to the sharing of the history, craft and culture of the didgeredo. (something like that)

    I’m no copy editor, but from what I know even simpler is better and I’m thinking

    InDidjInUs: Dedicated to sharing the music, history, craft, and culture of the didjeridu.

    I’m using with the J spelling because it’s how it’s spelled in InDidjInUs.  The order of music, history, craft and culture is arbitrary but I can see purposefully arranging it either in order of priority, to make it flow better, or just to make it easier to remember.

    Yeah so I noticed that the header on this website said

    Dedicated to sharing the history, craft, and culture of the didjeridu.

    Should be

    InDidjInUs: Dedicated to sharing the music, history, craft, and culture of the didjeridu.

    Got pasted into the FAQ, now changed on the website, but it’s in the PDF so I’ll fix that.

     

    Updated version attached also
