We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicki Runge and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nicki, one of the most rewarding things about getting to know so many entrepreneurs and creatives is seeing first-hand how many of them are focused on so much more than just financial results. So many of the folks we connect with are focused on having a positive social impact on their community or the world at large. Can you talk to us about how you are helping the community?
Since Covid 19 hits in March we had to cancel our show “Sign Me A Story” 3 left shows. Then we turn it to Virtual Once a Month it go so community become to get know our company which I can see fans are growing quickly than before.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We are very excited about our upcoming Art Channels with Episode 3 through 6 this month, two in November and another one in December plus we will be doing 4th Annual Mystery Murder Virtual Party on November Friday the 13th since we are not letting COVID 19 stopping us doing Annual Mystery Murder Party and also we will be doing #GivingTuesday 12 hours virtual on ImaginASL Facebook page on December 1st with 6 different shows. I am very proud of ImaginASL Team who is pushing it to keep it active.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite is Happy Hour Virtual through Zoom with National Theatre of the Deaf Team last summer.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We want to shoutout to Sorenson Company and Sprint 711 Relay since they donated us money to keep our company going and help us with Digital project for this year and year of 2021 plans. Also I give a little credit to Payton Talbert for building up her creative for “Art Channel” for ImaginASL Performing Arts TV Show. A lot of hearing parents with their deaf children loved that show and learn how to do arts in sign language show with voice interpreters through CORE Program who are our partnership.
