GIRLS NIGHT OUT 2010

Girls Night Out, in conjunction with the YWCA, raised $120,000 last year in this one night event to go towards eliminating domestic violence in West Virginia. This local, grassroots movement was started by a group of women who felt it was time for a change. Today, it is put together annually by handfuls of local women- baking gourmet treats and dreaming up themed cocktails, organizing auctions, sweet-talking all sorts of sponsors- to put together a night where women from all walks of life can get together and support this cause.

Interested in this Italian village above? Go to this years Girls Night Out, Lu’au on the Lawn, August 12 at the Sunrise Mansion and bid on the 12-day trip to Italy in the Live Auction! Visit their site we created for them, learn more about the event, and buy your tickets before they run out! Seventy-five dollars now, one hundred at the door- almost 100% of the proceeds go directly to the Women’s Domestic Violence Shelter.

WE SO PUMPED to be part of a knowledge exchange talk on Connecting Appalachia! With amazing people from Alabama and Vintage Theater in Clarksburg, and in the back stage room of @claycenter ! Sharin ideas on how we make connections within Appalachia, and between Appalachian and the World. Proximity and closeness breeds idea sharing and ideation. It’s something we take for granted in urban areas, where we are vertically stacked on top of eachother, and something we have to purposefully cultivate and manifest in rural America. So grateful for National Consortium for Placemaking, @tamarackfoundation, and all your partners for pulling us together the past two days at #cpls Appalachia! Monday morning we’ll be doing a brain download on all we’ve learned and all the inspiring folks we’ve met. #lookingatappalachia #connectingappalachia #creativeplacemaking @cpl_summit

SO MANY FOLKS from all over Appalachia tourin our Elk City neighborhood during this Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit: Appalachia !!! Thanks to the corners of West Virginia to Alabama to Georgia for letting us show you around our little neighborhood. We’re tackling everything from temporary art installs to unconventional workforce dev to mixed use space to creative financing to eyes on the street over here and there is always more to learn. Did you know that Elk City was originally its own city, until it was annexed into Charleston? Or that about half our west side building stock is considered abandoned? Learned that from our neighborhood planner today. Pumped for more workshops tomorrow at the @claycenter - hope to 👀 you there!! #elkcity #makeshop #creativeplacemaking #lookingatappalachia #cpls #gotowv @charlestonwv
