Project Description

Snap Scene will be the first experiential exhibition space that is truly accessible and reflective of the times. Patrons are provided with visuals they can identify with and relate to regardless of race, size, or ability.

 

THE PROBLEM SNAP SCENE IS TACKLING
Most interactive experiential brands in the NYC area are in Manhattan, where mass transit is needed or most will have to pay for parking. Very seldom do you find a interactive install that accommodates weights over 250 lbs. Lastly, interactive installs do not amplify the voices of people of color. Patrons feel left out and do not get the same experience as others although they are paying the same price. 

THE SOLUTION 
The first Snap Scene will be located in an area where parking is accessible minimizing the need for mass transit. Installs will accommodate weights upwards of 350lbs. There will be two or more rotating booths that amplify the voices of people of color. An alternative to the problems noted above does not currently exist in the NYC/Long Island area. Snap Scene has identified this void in the market. 

SNAP SCENE'S CUSTOMER SEGMENTS

  • Parents with children celebrating their birthday
  • Digital content creators
  • Influencers
  • The girl gang looking for a cool place gather before or after brunch
  • The business manager that wants to add some pizzazz to their next team building event.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? 
With the world pretty much at a standstill during the pandemic, most if not all things have gone virtual.  There is a new way of interacting and showcasing a plethora of things. As more and more people begin to rely heavily on imagery, how do we provide adequate representation if we are not able to access the same things as others in the same manner as others? Additionally, some just want to have fun and deserve to do so in an accommodating environment. 

PURPOSE OF FUND RAISING
All startups cost were paid for out of pocket. This year, I am raising $10,000 in funding being that the cost associated with ensuring installs are structurally sound and the art work is culturally reflective of the times is more than your basic installs. 100% of the proceeds of this campaign will be dedicated to fees, licensing and construction.  We would like to open on September 1st 2021.

GRATITUDE
Thank you for taking the time to find out more. No amount is too small and every penny helps.  Every dollar you spend with a small business, helps someone's dream come true!

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Where are you looking to open your first location? Queens NYC or Nassau County Long Island. The ability to have a larger space will provide me with the square footage needed to accommodate a wider variety of people. 
  • When are you looking to open? September 1, 2021
  • Why is this important to you?  As a big fan of experiential exhibition spaces, a woman of size and a woman of color, I often found myself exceeding the weight limit of the installs or not being able to identify them. After realizing the void then researching extensively, I created Snap Scene to provide a more inclusive experience while still be relatable to all. I plan on accomplishing this with rotating installs.
