I did a search for ethnic religious holidays and found that Diwali is
coming up. Then I did a search for "diwali connecticut". I found
that a local college is having a Diwali dinner with vendors and a
performance afterwards of Indian dance. I emailed the person running
the thing, introduced myself, and offered to do mehndi there. They
just got all bright-eyed and puppydoglike about it, so I hope this
opportunity will lead to others.
I've also got library teen program gigs. Email your local library
and offer to do one.
Basically, prospect the heck out of your area. Send cheerful emails
to anything where teenagers or college students will be gathering.
Send emails anywhere ethnic stuff is happening.
I'm FINALLY starting to get calls and emails about weddings and other
events. It took me about three years to get to this point, and I'm
by no means *busy* but I'm really hopeful for the future. Stick with
it.
Lauren
