Creative Alliance

If you’re a known artist or up-and-coming you already know about the Creative Alliance. The Creative Alliance is a non-profit organization who presents and promotes all genres of art in Baltimore.

Located in Fells Point at the corner of Patterson Park, on 3134 Eastern Avenue, their building can be seen by their flashing lights and marquis.

Since 1995, they have been a positive force of creative and cultural expression in the city. If you have a voice, they want to hear it. If you have an instrument, they want you to play it. If you have a work of art, they want to help you showcase it. If you have a dance, they want to groove to it. If there’s a poem, they want to snap to it.

Creative Alliance hosts hundreds of programs, performances, screenings, and workshops for people to attend. Most are open to the public but some are exclusive to members.

Becoming a member costs as little as $40, but $25 if you’re a student with valid ID.

Creative Alliance hosts hundreds of events a year that are always looking for volunteers for support. If you want to help elevate the creativity of this city, you may want to consider joining.

As well as hosting, the Creative Alliance also hubs a number of group meetings in their space as well. For instance, the Baltimore Songwriter’s Association meets up in the Creative Alliance building during their bi-weekly meetings. If you’re looking for a high traffic and high quality site to rent for an event, you can book your next event at the Creative Alliance building.

Also you can rent their premium quality media equipment to make your next movie into a blockbuster.

If you want to get involved, you can start small by attending a few of their programs and then work your way up to being a full-fledged member. You can always support the arts by donating to the organization as well. Creative Alliance also offers a residency program for artists looking to cultivate their talent.

Where do you express your creativity?

Helping Kids Get The Right Play

In strictlybaltimore on November 29, 2012 at 9:11 am

Playworks Volunteer Training Tonight!

WANTED: Enthusiastic high school students and adults looking to help their local elementary and middle schools with organized games.

Playworks is a non-profit organization that strives to improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play. Playworks needs volunteers to help Playworks coaches facilitate safe and healthy play and physical activities to low-income schools.

Tonight, November 29, from 6 – 8 PM at Waverly Elementary / Middle School, there will be Playworks Volunteer Training. During this training, volunteers will learn more about Playworks, play games that will help students focus more on their school work, and discover how much of an impact they can be in a child’s life and in the community by becoming a volunteer. Dinner will also be provided.

Most high schools need volunteer hours to graduate. The “volunteer” work done can count towards those required hours. Also the volunteer service that is done will look great on their college application.

If you can not make it to the volunteer training tonight, learn more from their website and apply online.

WHO: Playworks Volunteer Training
WHERE:
Waverly Elementary/Middle School, 3400 Ellerslie Ave Baltimore, MD 21218
