Here is an idea...Start a local group meeting monthly to discuss the full range of photography. Depending on the group, membership could give presentations addressing topics of group interest. Consider the group an analog support group. Organize photo contests. Charge a small entry fee and provide reasonable prize money. Use the participation list to recruit membership to your analog support group. As the group matures look for an art organization willing to donate space and utilities for a community darkroom. Check on-line local sales and ask the seller to make an equipment donation for the good of photography. Your group will need to provide user fees to cover costs and you will need to make arrangements for a DR overseeer.
