Event Description:

Join Spirit & Place and Big Car to test your knowledge with fun homework assignments and games about Indy, experience the debut of a new spoken word piece, "Dear Indy," by Tony Styxx, and view the exhibit Mari by artist Carl Pope.

What makes this community our home? Why is it wonderful? How can it be hurtful? What is the “work of home” we need to tackle to make Central Indiana great for all?

The Spirit & Place Festival is 10 days of exploration, conversation, and creativity around these questions. We’re excited to have commissioned spoken word artist Tony Styxx to kick-start the festival with his new piece, “Dear Indy,” and to debut it in Big Car’s new home, the Tube Factory artspace!

Surrounded by art, music, and friends you are also invited to play table games that will spark conversation about Indy’s changing neighborhoods, explore Mari—Carl Pope’s commissioned piece based off of the work of poet Mari Evans—, and learn about the exciting partnership between Big Car, Riley Area Development Corporation, and Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership to provide affordable homes for local artists in the Garfield Park neighborhood.

Did we mention there will also be a homework assignment for everyone in attendance? Don’t worry . . . it’s easy, fun, and involves a prize!

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs encouraged.

Presented by Spirit & Place and Big Car.
