Seriously though…do traffic and pedestrian laws go out the window during this 2 week period?
Back to the point of this blog…another episode of Your Biz Your Town with WGVU’s Shelley Irwin and myself (Kim Bode)….oh and our guests.
In no particular order we welcomed the following organizations/events to chat about their upcoming happenings. Get involved.
Avenue for the Arts
The Avenue for the Arts is a neighborhood title for the South Division commercial corridor. They are residential, commercial and nonprofit groups working together in a creative community, who are residents in Heartside, and active participants in shaping change in the neighborhood. In 2005, they choose the Avenue for the Arts as a title to represent their commercial corridor and the projects and events that they create.
They have lots coming up – Free Radical, ArtPrize Pop-Up Shops and more. Check it out here.
GiveCamp is a weekend-long event (November 7 – 9) where technology professionals – from designers, developers and database administrators to marketers and web strategists – donate their time to provide solutions for non-profit organizations.
Nonprofit deadline is October 1st.
Volunteers are desperately needed, find out more here.
