Ripples in Elkins
Community Brainstorm Registration
How can art experiences at the Farmers Market enhance the Elkins community?
Elkins has been selected to participate in the Tamarack Foundation for the Arts (TFA) RIPPLE program. Program participants will design and implement two artist-led projects in collaboration with the Elkins Farmers Market.
The initial RIPPLE community-wide brainstorming session for Elkins will take place via ZOOM on May 31, 2022, 4pm-5pm, to discuss the big question: How can art experiences at the Farmers Market enhance the Elkins community? The purpose of this meeting is for community members to share their visions and acquire collective insight into which specific arts activities the community would like to see happen at the Farmers Market. The meeting will also serve as an opportunity to recruit 12-20 participants for a 2-day intensive project design workshop at a later date. Note: Community members are encouraged to attend the brainstorming session even if they cannot commit to the project design workshop. Community input is needed in order to guide project development.
The Elkins RIPPLE intensive project design workshop will take place in-person on June 24-25, 9am-4pm, and will include an experiential learning trip to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning before finalizing project plans on Saturday afternoon. More details will be shared at the community brainstorming session.
