Event Description

For the fifth consecutive year, the Arts Council of Greater New Haven is pleased to partner with CT Transit in presenting Exact Change, a series of live performances on five local bus routes. Performances will take place on Saturday, May 5th, and are free with CT Transit’s regular fare.

 

This year’s iteration of Exact Change brings repeat performances from artists Sherece M. Sellem, a mime that has appeared in music videos for artists including Faith Evans, and Verbal Slap, a Connecticut spoken word poetry collective that will bring the art of poetry and the art of performance together as one.

 

In addition, three new artist groups will perform this year; Salt and Pepper Gospel Choir, a local gospel mainstay, Kings Band of Harmony: Brass Shout Band, one of Connecticut’s best kept secrets, and the Elm City Dance Collective, who will certainly accomplish their mission to “reinvent the performance experience” during Saturday’s event.

 

All routes converge at the New Haven Green, where riders, artists and the public can mingle to the music of The Kings Band of Harmony: Brass Shout Band from approximately 1:15-2 pm.

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

Facebook Pledges $150 Million to Bay’s Future Fund and Affordable Housing

Thanks to a generous—and momentous—commitment of $150 million from Facebook, the innovative Bay’s Future Fund has nearly reached its $500 million goal in less than one year since its launch. Now, LISC will help put these dollars to work promoting affordable housing development in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The “Ripple Effect” of Investing in Rural America

We need to look at the impact of investing in rural community development on its own terms, argues Suzanne Anarde, outgoing vice president and director of Rural LISC in an essay for Shelterforce. Projects may not touch the numbers of people or generate the returns of urban investments, but their effects are every bit as important, and ripple far and wide through the small, intricately connected networks of rural life.

“Café, Cultura, Vida”

As Hispanic Heritage Month comes to a close, we checked in with Sandra Flores, owner of Azukar Coffee, a small business percolating on the South Side of Phoenix that shows just how important a local gathering place can be to a neighborhood.
