I just spoke to the board of Neighborhood Housing Services Cleveland [whoa 1994 site design!] about my trip to Nashville. They footed the bill so it was only right that I tell them about it. The board has folks from all kinds of Cleveland services as members and the City Council Chairman Martin Sweeney was there speaking about a possible collaboration between Council and NHS. Two other fellow trip-takers also talked about their workshops.
I ran into Lou Tisler from NHS this morning at Lucky’s, picking up bagels. The only thing is, I didn’t realize he was Lou Tisler until I arrived at NHS, since I’d not met him before. The NHS building is also housing a curated gallery by Bridget Ginley. When community activism, third-space coincidences and local art collaborate, it is a recipe for a happy Adam. Sometimes I feel like something huge is about to happen in Cleveland.
