Some context: Kocherga is a rationalist community hub in Moscow.
There was a large crowdfunding campaign for printing the Russian HPMoR edition last year. Kocherga was the main local pickup point in Moscow; we distributed around 5000 copies to 3000 people.
We wanted to promote Kocherga, rationality and EA among these people (most of them just know HPMoR and don't know much about LW/EA), so I designed a new tri-fold leaflet. We handed it out with each set of books.
The reaction to this leaflet was quite positive, so I thought it'd be useful to do an English translation of it and share it here:
PS: We're still financially troubled, so if you like what we're doing and want to make sure we keep doing it, please consider supporting Kocherga on Patreon.
Re. Finances: I have no idea what the other fund members would think of this, but I think you should apply for the LTF-future fund, if you haven't done so already (see the last post that I made).
Whoa, for some reason I thought that LTF fund is not relevant to us, but looks like I was wrong. Thank you!
For context: in the last few months I applied for two CEA grants.
We could work more on improving our reputation on LW and EA forum (I have a few long posts in mind, e.g. our community building strategy which we've developed recently and which we're very hopeful about), but that's a costly strategy and there's a lot of uncertainty on whether that would be useful (for us or for the international community).
