3,2,1 – launch! After months in WordPress limbo (thank you WordPress) and thanks to the hard work of Brett and Alyssa at Detroit’s College for Creative Studies, GLUEspace is ready for prime time. Well, it’s actually ready to schedule its prime time debut.
On Saturday June 21st from 7-10 PM, the Buffalo Museum of Science will host the first of four community web launches. Local interpretation of the celebration’s theme (Community Transformation, Reinvesting in the Urban Core) is encouraged for each iteration, but all launch events will combine public art, storytelling, and community engagement and education.
Artists and molten metal magicians Simon Griffis and company will treat guests to a starlight “pour”, but that’s not all. The evening will also include performances by other local artists and a series of smaller conversations around the issues that matter to GLUE most:
• Environmental Justice & Sustainability
• Responsible Economic Development
• Empowerment of Communities & Individuals
• Quality of Place
• Civic Participation & Government Transparency
**** Are you an out of towner that wants to join us for that weekend? Do you want to help with the launch in Buffalo, St. Louis, Duluth, or Detroit (dates for other three events forthcoming)? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
More details in the coming weeks.
