Get connected and help better connect your city at our next social innovation exchange.
To build on the energy and the common theme of connections raised in our last SiX event, our next event will focus on increasing connections in Pittsburgh--between communities, cultures and generations.
Join us Monday, November 5th for the next SiX event at 6:00 at the Community Broadcast Center on the South Side where we will explore ways to forge new connections and deepen existing connections throughout our city.
In a quick round of Ignite Talks, we'll hear from Vanessa German of Love Front Porch
, Tim Cook of The Saxifrage School
, Khalif Ali of Coro about the Next Neighborhood Program
and Seth Gernot of The Keg Ride
and how they made connections and harnassed change for the good for our community.
Participants will then have a chance to propose their own ideas for things that should be more closely connected in Pittsburgh, from neighborhoods and communities to interest groups and businesses. It could be any kind of pairing, from North Side and biking, to Downtown and retail to music with crafting.
Onsite graphic facilitation will translate ideas into a collaborative illustrated map of a more connected Pittsburgh region. And small groups will work on final ideas for connections which will be presented at the end of the event.
To help turn these ideas into reality, Sprout will announce immediate catalytic funding to provide small-scale support for projects that help connect the people and communities of Pittsburgh. This time, it could be 15 grants of $1000 each.
After the event? Time to network over drinks and great food in a casual and fun setting.
