If you live in Tacoma / Pierce County, consider supporting Fab-5, a non-profit group that offers music, art, dance and other active creative expressions for urban youth.
[Fab-5’s] main outcomes are cultivating communities where youth from diverse backgrounds can gather, collaborate, learn and share ideas.
Twelve years in the community…serving 250 kids directly and thousands youth and families through community events…positive art, mentoring, music and a place to hang out. Watch the video and see how fun and life-changing a group like Fab-5 can be!
I stopped by last week while visiting Fulcrum Gallery. Kenji Stoll and an enthusiastic “assistant” took me on a tour. They need a few dozen of us to give $20 a month to pay rent on this amazing location (initiated through the Spaceworks program). For the cost of just five caramel macchiatos a month, you can invest in a creative center for kids!
Interesting example of conceptual poetry (and nice use of urban storefront space). It’s self-explanatory and a creative piece of art and poetry.
