Have you heard of our Shaw & Tell series? With 6,800 residents in Shaw, we know there is a wealth of knowledge, skills, and diverse experiences within our neighborhood. In September 2014, we started organizing free or low-cost events where Shaw residents demo a skill or share an experience. We hope this is an opportunity where you can learn something new while connecting with neighbors.
We had a great group of volunteers to get us started: Emma Klues (Experiencing Laughter Yoga), Stephanie Herbers (Getting Started with Crochet), Emily Cohen-Shikora (One Hour in the Human Mind), and Josh Brown (Perfecting the Manhattan). We’ve also learned about long-term care insurance and becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister.
Here’s what people are saying who’ve attended so far:
- “A fun, convenient way to meet my neighbors and learn a new skill!”
- “It was a great way to spend an evening, and I got to meet new neighbors… even better.”
- “I had no idea how fascinating my neighbor’s work was. What a creative way to learn something new while meeting your neighbors.”
