NEXT EVENT VOL 19

We are celebrating May is Bike Month and Spring Arts in Williamsburg. Let's mash them together PechaKucha style.

This will be an outdoor event in the big field behind Work Nimbly. Bring your lawn chairs. We'll start presentations when it gets dark enough.

More details will follow, but there will probably be a grill of some kind to kick off the Memorial Day weekend.

And, it's never too early to sign up to be a presenter.

Featured Presentation

Beau Turner and 70,000 of his closest friends build a city every year in the desert. His local group was also responsible for bringing the first exhibition of the Art of Burning Man outside of the festival to our area. Conversations lead to conversations that lead to next endeavers to design and construct the Mega Cake, to celebrate everyone's birthday at the next Burning Man.

As a side note, there is now going to be an Art of Burning Man exhibit at the Renwick on the Mall in Washington DC. Well done.

This Sounded Better In My Head

BY STEPHANIE PAUL
@ VOL 18 ON MAR 10, 2018

In order to exorcise her awkward demons, Stephanie Paul cast them out through the presentation. When you look at such things from both the outside and the inside, somehow they seem less...well, having less power over you.

Because Vanity

BY GRETCHEN BEDELL
@ VOL 18 ON MAR 10, 2018

Gretchen Bedell freely admits that it was the desire to look better that led her to the gym, not fitness or health or strength. Of course, those things happened anyway. And it opened another opportunity to have a positive influence on her kids.

What happens when your car can no longer support your commute and you end up walking to work? For Robert Oppecker it slowed him down enough to actually notice the route he was taking. With his trusty iPad in hand the photo collection started growing, along with the experience of walking to work.
