DIY Lowell wants to wish everyone an amazing 2021! There are so many things we missed last year–being able to gather and plan in person, all our community festivals and events like Points of Light and Folk Festival, and being able to meet with friends at restaurants and pubs. However, one thing we didn’t miss was Lowell’s amazing support!
Thanks to the community, we:
- Transitioned to a new Program Director, Alexis Ploss
- Worked with the Ghost Signs Alive project team to finish their J.C. Ayer projection, now exhibiting until 9:00 pm every night
- Kickstarted the Helping Centralville Connect project in cooperation with many stakeholders and the Solomon Foundation (Survey still open for those who missed it in 2020!)
- Joined with Free Soil Arts Collective and Commonwealth Places to start the Visualize Lowell’s Black History project
- Had an amazing, fun Café Crawl, giving punchcards to dozens of people who each visited up to ten cafés and won gift cards and other prizes
- A lot of other behind-the-scenes work, including beginning coordination of re-starting the Young Ideas Project “the Space” and growing it to additional youth groups, “Quarantine Café” virtual community meetings, and more!
Want to help us out?
Check out the Ghost Signs Alive fundraiser on the Lowell Virtual Market – the team is selling limited edition soap inspired by Ayer’s Cherry Pectoral and hand-crafted by Red Antler Apothecary and five distinctive postcards designed by the team–from a single postcard for $1.50 for a $15 for an entire gift basket.
