We're "Blooming" again this Saturday at the corner of Camden and W. Worthington in South End ... from 10 a.m. to Noon right in front of Allbirds and the brand new Lowe's Global Tech Hub.⁣

This Saturday, @NotablyPaperCo (pictured here) and @SaltAndLightCreativeCompany have a fun way for you to add beauty to your home. ⁣

They have printed large versions of some of their most popular postcard and greeting card designs for you to take home with you. ⁣

The artwork is free, but here's the thing ... you get to customize it. We'll have paint and brushes on hand and you can work with Sara and Garreth from Notably Paper and Julia from Salt and Light to make their work your own. This is an awesome way to add a new work of art to your home.⁣

Artwork is available while supplies last. South End Blooms pop-ups are made possible by @LowesHomeImprovement and support from @CLTIsCreative and @SouthEndCLT.⁣

𝗡𝗘𝗫𝗧 𝗪𝗘𝗘𝗞 - 𝗔𝗨𝗚𝗨𝗦𝗧 𝟮𝟳 - @MacFlyFresh will teach you to screenprint a free T-shirt from 5 to 7 p.m.⁣

CLT NEEDS YOUR INSIGHT ON THE FUTURE OF ARTS & CULTURE⁣

The City of Charlotte has announced the first of a series of community conversations that will feed the development of the City's comprehensive Arts and Culture Plan. If you have experiences, perspectives and opinions you want to be taken into account in the plan, this is your chance.⁣

For the plan to be well-rounded, it needs the involvement of creatives, businesses, leaders and neighbors from across Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. Put simply, if you're not in the room during this process, your experience and ideas won't inform the plan.⁣

▶️Music, arts and food from local artists and creatives⁣
▶️Information to take home and share⁣

This launch will be followed by three other conversations in the following two days. Events will be cohosted by the city and its cultural planning consultants, Lord Cultural Resources and Civility Localized.
