Hey, artists! Free food!
The Downtown Brattleboro Alliance's recent Nourishing Artists challenge was successful in funding 300 local restaurant meals for local artists. But the artists can only get the meals — and the restaurants will only get paid for those meals — if artists sign up for a meal.
Any artist qualifies if they have lived, worked, performed, displayed, taught or practiced their art in Brattleboro. The definition of "artist" is broad, so this is not just for painters and writers and trapeze aerialists and actors and fiddlers, but also for crafts people, yoga teachers, concert producers, museum clerks, tattoo artists, furniture makers, landscape designers, hair stylists, seamstresses, stage hands, piano tuners and yarn bomb pranksters.
Sign up and tell your friends to sign up, for a free delicious meal from one of our local restaurants at brattleboro.com under "Artists Sign Up."
Send in your video for 'Streaming of the Heifers'
While the coronavirus has canceled this year's Strolling of the Heifers parade in downtown Brattleboro, fans of beautiful bovines the world over can watch — and be part of — the Streaming of the Heifers, a crowd-sourced celebration of cows and dairy farming to be released online next month.
Strolling of the Heifers and WRSI-FM The River are collaborating to create an online parade, and all are welcome to submit a video clip for inclusion.
"We were so disappointed to have to cancel the parade this year," said Lissa Harris, Executive Director of Strolling of the Heifers. "We're happy to have an opportunity for parade marchers to still participate in a different way."
Any farm, individual, group, nonprofit, business or anyone else wishing to be part of the Streaming of the Heifers can submit their short video clip at WRSI's website, by Wednesday. Dress up your cow. Dress like a cow if you don't have one.
The Streaming of the Heifers video will debut on June 6, on WRSI's Facebook page.
