The Anchal Project wins the Louisville Metro Government’s “LOTS of Possibilities” award for our newest project, dyeScape. The project was rewarded with funds and 3 parcels of land to begin this plan with the goal of ending the exploitation of women in Louisville.
Anchal Project officially signed the Grant Agreement and Deed to dyeScape’s lots (1655 Portland Avenue, 1657 Portland Avenue and 609 North 17th Street) on June 10th. We then made plans for several volunteer days throughout the summer.
On June 21st, the project team (Colleen Clines, Maggie Clines, & Louis Johnson) and several volunteers met on site to begin the site layout and strategize about the placement of the water.
The following weekend, June 28th, the dyeScape team successfully broke ground. The water trench, concrete slab and gravel workspace were all excavated with the assistance of donated machinery and gracious volunteers.
The next major workday took place on July 12th. The dyeScape team and experienced volunteers gathered early to build a form for the concrete slab. The day produced amazing progress with the completion of the concrete slab and the implementation of the gravel workspace.
Several days later the water spigot was successfully installed and tested.
With the amazing progress completed throughout the summer of 2014, dyeScape has been able to take tremendous strides to reaching a final product and goal to bring us closer to the official dyeScape launch date!
