Twin Cities Local Initiatives Support Corporation (TCLISC)’s Central Corridor as Cultural Corridor (C4) program supports 7 community-based organizations that leverage arts and culture to highlight local diversity, bring communities closer together and boost neighborhood economies.
On November 13, 2015, C4 partners will be hosting the “C4ward: Arts and Culture along the Green Line” event as an invitation to get up close and personal with the Cultural Business Districts and neighborhoods that surround the Green Line between the Western and West Bank stations (see flyer below for details).
You’ll venture into the districts and learn how to make Injera in Little Africa, receive Tiger Balm from Little Mekong, find out about “sacred grounds” on the West Bank, visit the smallest museum in the Creative Enterprise Zone, enter the Sunrise building with over 50 Hmong small businesses in Frogtown, enjoy lunch from Big Daddy’s in Rondo and walk along what will be Green 4th Street in Prospect Park. But, this isn’t just show and tell, we want to hear about your experience through different art activities facilitated by local artists after the tours.
This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP and register for this event; this will allow us to arrange the district tours. Dress warm and casual; we'll be taking the train and walking through the districts.
A huge thank you to our C4 partners for their hard work in making this event possible: Asian Economic Development Association, Frogtown Neighborhood Association, Aurora Saint Anthony Neighborhood Development Corporation, African Economic Development Solutions, Creative Enterprise Zone, Prospect Park 2020, and West Bank Business Association.
Come discover the history, present and future of the Twin Cities through tours, food, performances and arts & cultural activities! We hope to see you on Friday, November 13th!
