Summer Commune is picking up steam! At last week’s open meeting we discussed ways to continue the project of Summer Commune (art + community + fun) once the summer is over. Bringing like-minded people together is what this summer is about — both for people who live here and for people who don’t — so we love to see new ideas and new connections being made.
There are a couple of ways you can connect with us this week:
WEEKLY OPEN MEETING
Wanderers’ Tavern (Washington & 2nd, downtown) - Wednesday, JUNE 27, 6 PM
Over cheap beers & homemade snacks, we’ll continue planning the unconference event and talk about new projects and events. Have an event you want to plan? Come tell us about it. [RSVP/Invite Your Friends]
ARTS EN PLEIN AIR
Moscow Arboretum (U of Idaho) - THURSDAYS, 10-11 AM
Drawing meets the great outdoors. This is a weekly meet up for visual artists who want the structure of a class but none of the restrictions. BYO materials. MEETING LOCATION: Drive up Nez Perce Drive on the south side of the UI campus. Park along the street and meet at the stone bench under the trees, just down on the left side of the slope. Contact: sofya [at] summercommune [dot] com. [RSVP/Invite Your Friends]
LE SALON COMMUNE #1 - Words With Friends (Now with S’machos!)
Thursday, JUNE 28, 7 PM - 11 PM
Eat, drink, & be literary. After a potluck dinner & a drink or 2 (or 3…) we’ll read our original work. All genres & all levels & all subject matter welcome, but everyone must read! While smaller writing groups may emerge from these meet ups, this event is for everyone, including “non-writers.” This is about having fun while safely nestled in a sticky web of creative support. You don’t have to be good, you just have to be willing. (We promise we’ll be gentle.) [RSVP/Invite Your Friends]
VOLUNTEERING AT THE FARMER’S MARKET
Saturdays, 1 PM, Friendship Square
Moscow has been great to us - help us to return the favor. After the Farmer’s Market, volunteers are needed to help take down tables and chairs. Look for the staff in the lime green vests and ask how you can help.
The Summer Commune Reading Series is looking for readers! The reading series, hosted by Book People, will feature work by both local Communers and those visiting from LA, SF, NY, etc. Each reading will feature a mixture of styles and genres. We’re particularly interested in literary voices that will reflect the spirit of Summer Commune — youthful, daring, innovative, irreverent, passionate, entertaining. Or, you know, some combo of those things. Readings will be on July 11th and 25th at Book People of Moscow (Main Street). For a chance to read, submit writing samples to nicole [at] summercommune [dot] com.
If you know something, share something! Do you want to give people a quick introduction to a foreign language or a handy skill? Do you have burning tips about real estate, camping, or music in the area? Do you want to organize a group and would like to pitch the community? Are you a startup looking to recruit employees and want to introduce yourself? Did you travel to a cool place and want to share your experience? SIGN UP HERE to be a speaker at Moscow’s first unconference! Each speaker will present for 10 minutes on a topic of his/her choice. Now is the time to share what you know and love with your community! unconference: July 29, 5-7:30 PM, 1912 Center.
