Readers may have noticed that I have been posting less frequently about Fort Hill History. It’s not that I’ve run out of interesting topics…quite the opposite, I have a long list of local history to write about.
What’s been keeping me busy is the new project I am working on at the base of Fort Hill on the old Bartlett Yard bus site. Since October, I’ve been working with Alliger Arts and the site owners to bring events, art, and community gatherings to the now-vacant space over this spring and summer. We’re finally ready to announce our plans to the world!
This spring, summer, and fall, we hope you will join us on the site for Bartlett Events, a celebration of the community that will happen (almost) every weekend day! We aim to fill the site with massive outdoor art, events, and community activities for all to enjoy every weekend day.
You can get involved in a number of ways. If you have pictures of the neighborhood that you are willing to share, we would like to blow them up and post them on the site. If you are an artist, we want your local art! If you make music, make it at Bartlett! If you are a business, we want to involve you! If you like to play games, have fun, meet your neighbors, or just be outside in an interesting new space, we hope you will join us!
