Got a story? The State of Connecticut has launched 'Our Places, Our Stories'

The State Historic Preservation Office of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development is seeking grant applicants for its “Our Places, Our Stories” initiative – a program designed to raise awareness for the rich cultural assets of our ethnic nationalities.  This effort is being launched in partnership with ethnic historical and cultural organizations throughout the state. Phase I will document the historical links between the people of various ethnic communities and the cultural landscapes they created:  neighborhoods, buildings, shops, sites and events. The first phase of the initiative will document the state’s assets, followed by a second phase that will market them as a visitor experience.

I've started reading through the Reflections sheets - so many good thoughts.  I will share them and ask for more feedback.  The first observation - which was an interesting perspective - "The story gave me the following thoughts and insights:  Self-expression is in our DNA.  It is a reaction to the world around us, to our won thoughts and ideas.  You involve an audience or individual by causing him to either listen, watch or use his imagination.  Art is communication at its most elemental level."

Poetry is alive and well in New Haven and around that State. Here it, see it and feel it at these places.

A group of women in Chatham Square neighborhood decided that an art program was need in their community so they invited local artist to tables set up at Chatham Square Park. Another resident decided to video tape the event and still another set the video to music, this is the result. A connection was made to Creative Arts Workshop through a former resident of the neighborhood and now CAW used PACK funds to work in collaboration with neighborhood women women on Art in the Park 2011.

The music loving community concerned about the dwindling audiences for classical music might want to connect with GNH Community member Angelica Durrell. She recently organized a concert for International Women's Day at Santa Rosa de Lima church in New Haven. The concert was attended by over 200 men, women and and children, mainly Latinos and African-American residents of New Haven. Music composed by 4 women from the United States, Cuba, Mexico and Ecuador was featured. Like Benjamin Zander Angie believes that 99% of people love classical music, they just don't know it yet.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

When Disaster Hits, Your First Responder Probably Will Not Be a First Responder

The FIRST assets in a disaster are neighbors. In fact, it turns out that while your neighbors have everything to do with your immediate chances in a disaster, your neighbors and their collective extended connections determine how well and how fast your community will recover.

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

Ten Talented Local Leaders Win LISC Fellowship

They come from all corners of the country, and all share a deep commitment to helping their communities thrive. Meet the inaugural class of the Michael Rubinger Community Fellowship. Named after LISC’s longtime CEO, who retired last summer, the fellowship recognizes their accomplishments to date, and invests in their growth as leaders and in the future of community development. “They are the staying power of what we do,” Rubinger said.  “We owe it to our field to find new ways to build and nurture them.”

In Flint, an Avenue Leading to Safety

For decades, the residents of Flint, Michigan have endured high rates of crime alongside devastating unemployment, depopulation and blight—and recently, a severe water crisis on top of that. But the energy and commitment of neighbors, business people and key anchor institutions are transforming the historic University Avenue corridor. Crime there, in turn, has plummeted. A Department of Justice community safety grant, with training and technical assistance from LISC, has ramped up those efforts and is helping make the corridor a model of problem-solving, and optimism, for all of Flint.

A Hive of Small Business Activity in Boston

In celebration of Small Business Saturday (Nov. 25), we're profiling emerging enterprises in the communities where we work that have benefited from LISC small business lending and support. In Boston, Northeastern University and LISC have launched the Impact Lending initiative to spur women- and minority-owned businesses and local economies that surround the university. Honeycomb Café, a bustling new locavore restaurant in South Boston’s Dorchester area, offers a picture of impact lending at its finest.
