Event Description

On Saturday, June 2nd, from 12-5pm, families with children of all ages are invited to attend the 17th annual Audubon Arts on the Edge, an afternoon full of free, family-oriented music and dance performances, interactive arts-and-crafts activities, fun educational programs, and giveaways. The event will take place in the Audubon Arts & Retail District, on the block of Audubon Street between Whitney Avenue and Orange Street, rain or shine.

 

Among some of the entertainment this year will be Neighborhood Music School’s Afro-Caribbean World Beat and Neighborhood DoSo Band, ACES ECA’s Latin Jazz Ensemble, Vocal Ensemble and Site Specific First Year Dances, Pantochino Children’s Theater, Thelma Ladeira with Ginga Brasileira Dance Company performing Afro-Brazilian dances, and Music Haven’s All Hands on Bow orchestra.

 

As always, Audubon Street itself will become a canvas, on which event-goers can contribute to an ever-evolving sidewalk chalk mural. A huge painting wall and a pottery wheel will also be set up to encourage artistic expression. In addition, a storytelling area, dress up corner, and face painting station will be featured for children, as well as music making at an instrument petting zoo. The popular community tables at this year’s event will include Chairigami, Elm City Market, and the Yale Peabody Museum.

Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
