BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY: Stories of Survival
Tuesday, October 18 • 6-8pm
@ Reginald F. Lewis Museum

Film Screening & Solutions-Oriented Conversation

An entrepreneurial tradition reflected in the real stories of those that squeegee in the streets of Baltimore

Spurred on by an organization’s interest in the stories behind those we see every day at our city’s intersections, By Any Means Necessary contextualizes this sector against the history of “hustle” or gig economies in the Black community. It provides interviews with those who participate, allowing for first-person accounts of the “why” behind squeegeeing and presenting the concept that the reasons and the participants are not monolithic.

Presented in partnership with the Baltimore National Heritage Area.

Have A Nice Day Project – Station North
Tuesday, October 18 • 6-8pm
@ Guilford Hall Brewery

We’ve ordered a bulk supply of blank coffee sleeves. While enjoying good food, drinks, and conversation, we’ll be tasked with filling those sleeves with positive messages, quotes, jokes, fun pictures and more.

We’re donating these sleeves to OneDo Cafe (Canton), Charmed Kitchen (Patterson Park) and Koba Cafe (Federal Hill). They will use those sleeves until they are gone, distributing them with coffee orders to their patrons throughout the week. How awesome will it be for someone to go to their favorite coffee shop, place their usual order, look down and see a fun message from you?

Reserve your spot here.


Yourself, your good vibes, and your appetite 🙂

Any supplies that will help you be creative (some folks bring extra permanent markers and stickers)
