Our Globefronts are busy and full of energy this summer! Kaley Madden has been enjoying her time at our Camp Washington storefront with Anti Fashion Boot Camp. Community members stop by and learn how to sew, experiment, and learn the ins and outs of fashion. Two students of Anti Fashion Boot Camp are Jashawn and Anna, who are in the space working about 4 days a week. They have been working on projects and lessons Kaley sets for them and are slowly but surely creating their collection of work to be shown at the final presentation fashion show at the end of July. Additionally, AFBC has a wonderful weaving resident, Abby Schnure, who has been exploring the transformation of the byproducts of consumption through weaving.
Make Someone’s Day debuted on Thursday, June 28, and it was a big hit! People of all ages sat around the community table and got their hands dirty as they created their own clay flowers. Artist Bethany Pelle aims to celebrate folks from the Greater Cincinnati through handmade ceramic floral bouquets. The space will be activated with numerous events throughout the months of July and August that center around the beauty and simple nature of flowers. Check out her website for the list of all her events.
Speaking of our Globefronts, we are gearing up for our final set of Globe Grants for 2019! This is the last chance to apply. This summer, three people will be selected for a $15k, 6-week takeover of the People’s Liberty storefront (across the street from Findlay Market) in 2019. Applications go live July 11th with an info session at People’s Liberty that evening at 5:30pm.
