Great in Greater Forest Lawn is Back!

Back in June the artBOX hosted "Great in Greater Forest Lawn," a promotion run by the International Avenue Business Revitalization Zone.The concept was for people to pitch ways to improve Forest Lawn with little restriction as to how. Creativity was the name of the game. The winning pitches based on audience voting received funding to help get their projects up and running. The event brought the Forest Lawn community together and stressed the amount of potential the district of our city holds.

With the tremendous interest in the Great in Greater Forest Lawn event held in June, the International Avenue Business Revitalization Zone has decided to do it again. Great in Greater Forest Lawn - Part 2 is a special event that wants to change the way we think about our community. Do you have an idea that needs a little help or are you the one able to help make that idea a reality? Regardless, we need you to be a part of another exciting community event at artBOX on Tuesday, October 6 at 11:30 am.

All members of our community are welcome to pitch their ideas. Ideas can be business, art, project-based, music, community or event related and the only condition - it happens in our community. Back in June, CIES very own Diana Katsnelson, CLB 6/7 instructor from our NE location, and her pitch for the "little free library", a give a book \ take a book drop box, was selected as a winner. Organizers have once again arranged for a $2,500 total to be awarded over the lunch. So be a part of the social change and momentum we are creating together. Tickets are $10 and available on eventBrite. Proceeds go to the fund.
