The ONE Arts Collective is Here!

We’re excited to announce that the ONE Arts Collective is opening their ONE Arts Center, and we encourage everyone to go check it out!

Sunday, Sept 21st from noon until 5. Open house at the new ONE Arts Center at 72 North Champlain St (corner of Peru and N. Champ.) Parking available at the Sustainability Academy.

Our open house will include an art auction to buy much needed supplies, an exhibition of our artists, children’s activities, short performance works, and a chance to meet our instructors and sign up for October’s classes. Have a mimosa and check out the new space!

The ONE Arts Center provides a creative resource space for the community and encourages an atmosphere of exploration and inquiry for all ages. This is an art space for people to get to know and support each other, to share ideas and resources, and to practice radical, joyful creativity.

The Art Center currently offers daytime and evening high quality arts programming for both children and adults. We curate a monthly art show at the Center, offer monthly critique times for artists, and sell the work of local artists from our storefront. The Center strives to cultivate a welcoming, inclusive community that appreciates art and supports its artists.

We will also be celebrating the launch of the Abe’s Corner Accelerator opening soon on the ground floor of the building.  Founded by Old North End resident Sean Hurley, the Abe’s Corner Accelerator invests in, co-locates and supports start-ups that have the ability to scale through the adoption of best practices in digital marketing and advertising. We look for teams that are coachable, local and committed.

The Abe’s Corner Accelerator is the first funding vehicle in Vermont’s venture ecosystem dedicated exclusively to wealth-creation in the digital space. We operate out of Abe’s Corner in Burlington’s Old North End, one of the most diverse and dynamic neighborhoods in New England.
Start-ups can apply today for funding in the 2014 Winter Class at abescorner.com.

June “Scramble” morning networking event

Join us on Thursday, June 19 for our monthly morning “Scramble”. Our guest speaker will be Katelin Brewer-Colie, the Complete Streets Project Manager at Local Motion. She’ll be speaking about the new “Open Streets” initiative, with the kickoff event taking place in the Old North End on September 21st.
 
Open streets is based on the South American “Ciclovia” where a city closes some of its streets to cars for a few hours and opens them to bikes, skaters, scooters, runners and other forms of active transportation. Here is a video about the open streets movementwhich now exists in over 100 US and Canadian cities.

We encourage you to bring your ideas about this exciting new project and hear about it’s potential positive effect for O.N.E. Businesses, Non-profits and artists.
 
See you around the neighborhood!
