CHCA Meeting Updates: Safe in This Place Still Seeking Participants (and much more)


Great to see so many people at the Crow Hill Community Association meeting last night. If you missed it or you'd like to learn more about the CHCA, check out their website, where they keep a regular blog of neighborhood happenings. Some updates and highlights from the meeting:

Safe in This Place Still Accepting New Participants (no prior theater experience necessary): Safe in This Place, a community-based theater and dialogue project, hosts its second session tomorrow at Georgia's Place (691 Prospect, at Bedford) from 7-9:30pm, and they're still welcoming more attendees into the fold. If you'd like to get involved, check the CHCA site (they're helping to sponsor the project) or get in touch with them at

Help Make Franklin Bike Friendly: While they're still working together to bring an extended bike lane to Franklin, the CHCA and  Transportation Alternatives are also circulating a petition to bring more bike racks to Community Board 8. Sign it here.

Arts Arts Arts: SOS Crown Heights announced their second annual Arts to End Violence Contest, which offers cash prizes to artists 19 and younger in three categories: two-dimension representation, video, and t-shirt design. The submission deadline is April 5, 2012. If you're older than 19 but still want to get involved, SOS would love to hear from you with ideas for how arts might be incorporated into their programming. In other arts new, the folks from Ground Up Designers showed off their award-winning design for the Crow Hill Community Garden (more to come on this once they launch their kickstarter campaign) and local muralist Claire from Imaginal Disc Art said hello and offered her skills as a muralist to anyone/any business in the neighborhood that would like to collaborate on a mural. 

State of the 57th: A representative from Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries' office came by to invite residents to his "State of the District" address, to be held on Thursday, January 26 at 6:30 PM in the Pratt Institute's Higgins Hall.
