Progeny Visits Bill Strickland
Next week we are headed to Pittsburgh to visit Bill Strickland and the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild. Part of Bill’s philosophy is to build amazing environments to program kids for success. After a 6.5 million dollar capital campaign he opened a 62,000 square foot arts and career training center. It includes a world class ceramics studio, a jazz concert hall where jazz legends give concerts, a gourmet culinary arts school, and a photography school. There is natural light, art, and fresh cut flowers throughout the facility.
This is an amazing place and an inspirational man. We are looking forward to meeting Bill and gathering new ideas for the future of Progeny.
Here is a video with an overview of the facility and their projects. I would also highly recommend Bill’s book “Make the Impossible Possible”.
