F UP Cancer B-Day Bash, July 9th **street closure**

Posted by on Jun 16, 2017 in Fundraiser, News |

The 2nd Annual F Up Cancer Birthday Bash Event is scheduled for July 9, 2017 from 12pm-8p and will include a street closure on Walker and Peters Street from 6am- 10pm. We anticipate around 500-1500 people to attend this fundraising event. There will be a live concert from 5pm-8pm and therefore will be amplified noise from 12pm-8pm.

The F Up Cancer B-Day Bash is an annual block party that is hosted in honor of Damien “Black” Nicholson, owner of the Omen Agency and a cancer survivor. This year’s event is officially sponsored by the Hip-Hip Gives Back Foundation! This event is not just a celebration of life for “Black” and all other cancer survivors, but it is also a community event that will include a:

• Health Expo
• Celebrity Roast
• Family Fun Festival

The outdoor concert will feature local artists like K Camp, Pee Wee Longway, Khodie Shane, Tina P & more!
They would like to showcase local talent from surrounding communities and are offering the opportunity for local acts to be a part of the festivities as well. Contact KonataJ@HipHopGivesBack.org if interested.

Castleberry Hill Neighborhood Placemaking Coordinator

Posted by on Jun 15, 2017 in News |

This new position with the Castleberry Hill Neighborhood Association (CHNA) requires an energetic, results-oriented professional enthusiastic about the potential of Castleberry Hill. As a community organizer, ability to manage complex issues and projects, work effectively with a variety of constituencies, interface with volunteers and build consensus among diverse stakeholders are essential skills. Passion for Placemaking and public spaces is a must.

The Neighborhood Placemaking Coordinator will focus his/her energies on improving the public spaces in Castleberry Hill, with a focus on connecting with Downtown and the Westside neighborhoods of Vine City and English Avenue as well as the AUC. Areas of emphasis will include improving connectivity between the neighborhoods, supporting the implementation of neighborhood Placemaking projects, and activating public spaces to enhance the overall environment. In many ways this position will act as both a public safety coordinator as well as a beautification coordinator since safety is linked to neighborhood beautification allowing for once unsafe areas to become useful, activated space.

By focusing on placemaking, beautification and safety, Castleberry Hill will be able to identify social entrepreneurship opportunities that can help residents, business owners and property owners and enhance the overall community.  The planning support the coordinator offers will help the CHNA develop business, marketing and communication plans for social entrepreneurship opportunities involving placemaking throughout the neighborhood.
