First Night in the Burg

David Miller -- August 31st, 2007

Calling all creative people. Here is an opportunity to bring new ideas and new energy to First Night Harrisonburg.

The arts have always been a strong component of First Night. But how do we improve this relationship? How do we better combine the arts and community, and create a unique celebration?

Let’s talk about it. Come if you have ideas, if you want to be more involved in the artistic or experiential aspects of First Night, or if you’re a fun-loving, enthusiastic, or creative person.

Friday, September 14th we’ll be gathering from 6:30-7:30pm at Bombay Courtyard. This is the Indian restaurant at 1588 S. Main St. in Harrisonburg. Click here for a map.

Email Elizabeth Haworth if you have further questions, hawortex@jmu.edu.

    Recently I attended a workshop about First Night and learned that the design of each event should have an emphasis on the ARTS, COMMUNITY, and CELEBRATION. With that in mind, I’m excited to hear the ideas that will be generated from this meeting.
