WHERE ITS AT

“Where Its At” is a live, visual art production involving several artists. They create an ever morphing piece over a three hour span of time.

The artists draw from their own styles, energy, and event vibe to create a unique final project. Think of it as a jam session, using paint instead of instruments!

 

WHERE ITS AT, GONZA, ART, WWI, WONDER WHAT IF, ELIZABETH BLOCK PARTY

Check out AKA Creative’s inaugural Elizabeth Avenue Block Party on Sat, Aug 31

As Labor Day weekend approaches, AKA Creative is coördinating a community event to honor Charlotte’s entrepreneurs, creatives, and social innovators.

The Elizabeth Avenue Block Party, scheduled for Saturday August 31 from 5pm to 11pm, will close down Elizabeth Avenue between Charlottetowne Ave. and N. Torrence Street to fill the road and its attached grassy knoll with food trucks, visual artists, musicians, performers, vendors, and Charlotte residents. The event is free and appropriate for all ages.

The block party is not only a neighborhood celebration, it is also a neighborhood giveback. Attendees can donate $15 to help feed families in need of a little help from a fellow neighbor. As with all AKA Creative events, the Block Party will include a pro-social element. Earth Fare will donate packaged goods, produce and grocery bags, and Dr. Holly Clemens of Charlotte Health Center will provide healthy recipe cards. Block Party attendees will help out by sorting donations, stuffing grocery bags and writing encouraging notes to the grocery recipients. Loaves & Fishes will collect the bags and provide them to those families in need.

Lindsay Fisher, director of operations and co-founder of AKA Creative, explains why AKACreative decided to put on this block party event:

Collaboration. That is the essence of a block party and that is the essence of AKACreative. We believe that amazing things can happen when a catalyst helps to inspire collaboration within a community. (…)

The Block Party keeps us in touch with the people who helped us become so successful in our first year. Planning this block party has already allowed us to forge new collaborations within the community. If it’s successful, we intend to make it an annual event or outdoor event series.

Entertainment will be provided by a bevy of local talents in Charlotte’s music, visual art, and performing art scenes. And several of Charlotte’s finest mobile entrepreneurs will park their food trucks and set up shop.
