More Better and Storm the Palace were as real as NEO gets

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Wed, 11/02/2005 - 12:53.

Over a period of two evenings - October 31 and November 1, 2005 - around 150 folks from all walks of life and corners of NEO came together at two spectacular places - the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Palace Theater - to participate in "world cafes" introduced by futurist Rebecca Ryan. The response and outcomes were fantastic. Highlights and content created is posted in two books below:"Making NEO "More Better" at the CIA - October 31, 2005" and "Storming the Palace for a sustainable NEO - November 01, 2005" - more will be added for quite some time so check back frequently - the most important outcome is the development of ideas surfaced during these events, which are posting to our "Community Forums"... go there to participate in making NEO "more better" . To those who joined us, thank you so much!!!

Arts and the Cleveland Mayor's Race

Submitted by Kevin Cronin on Mon, 10/31/2005 - 10:19.

Both Mayor Campbell and Council President Jackson met with the arts community last week.  Attendance was low, both at the Play House on the east with Campbell and Cleveland Public Theatre on the westside with Jackson. The Campbell strategy was to identify a top 20 list of reasons Campbell has advanced the arts, with art summits, expansion of live/work zones and public funding through the "1% for arts" set aside that is a part of public construction contracts.  She says her track record merits her return to office for another four years.  Jackson said, through his leadership, he deserves credit for these initiatives as well, and his record in council deserves the public’s faith and confidence that he will work to represent them well.  But what would be an election without an added dose of cynicism? 

Making Cleveland a world aerosol art capital

As I ride the RTA and run around the Cleveland area each day I appreciate how much good aerosol art talent we have. These artists are considered vandals 364 days a year and given a little festival 1 day a year. We should do more for these artists and their art.

Wednesday April 20thmembers of REALNEO and other supporters of East Cleveland visited the East Cleveland Community Theater. ECT is situated in the heart of an exciting revival going on in East Cleveland. Executive Director Theresa Tucker spoke to the group and gave a tour of the building. She is filled with passion for ECT and does much more than just fund raising and program development.

 

Our meeting was part of a grass roots public initiative to optimize virtual community and bridge the digital divide in East Cleveland, for invidiatual residents and worthy organizations like ECT - read more about these efforts at the East Cleveland virtual community here. Theresa was excited to hear how ECT can benefit from new and innovative community partnerships and long needed access to Internet technology.
