Where this conversation will go? You will have to join on June 7 to find out!  Only a limited number of tickets are available, so act fast!  For more info, head to The Gymnasium's website

Give and Take in the Creative Enterprise Zone!

Geoffrey Warner and Alchemy are proud to support the efforts of St. Anthony Park's emerging Creative Enterprise Zone.  We are excited to invite you to their upcoming event, "Give and Take in the Creative Enterprise Zone."

From St. Anthony Park's website...
"Give & Take, the event where happy hour meets show and tell, arrives in the Creative Enterprise Zone."

On Wednesday, October 10th, a special one-night GIVE & TAKE event will take place in St. Anthony Park’s emerging CREATIVE ENTERPRISE ZONE. Centered at the crossroads of Raymond and University Avenue, the Creative Enterprise Zone is rooted in the idea that creative work is both necessary and satisfying and that innovation grows when interesting people and projects increase their connectivity. The Creative Enterprise Zone emerged out of the disruption and excitement generated by light rail development in an already fertile and highly concentrated area of creative development. This enterprising spirit is a perfect match for Give & Take, a public program designed by WORKS PROGRESS in 2009 with creativity, interactivity, and fun in mind.

The event will feature presentations by members of the neighborhood’s creative community, interactive audience-led games, snacks and beverages, and other unexpected opportunities to connect to local creativity and ingenuity. This will be a prime time to meet the entrepreneurs, artists, designers, makers, business owners, and residents who make this neighborhood hum with creative energy."

Head over to their website for more information about the event.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Students Stop by Alchemy Office!

Last week, a group of fourth and fifth graders from Echo Park Elementary School and Oak Ridge Elementary School stopped by the Alchemy office to ask a real architect some questions.  After spending time studying architecture in class, the students ventured into the real architecture office as part of their "Architectural Tour of the Twin Cities."  The field trip started at Alchemy where Geoff explained the role of an architect as well as answered student questions.
After Alchemy, the class had a full day of stops including the Ramsey County Courthouse, the Cathedral of St. Thomas the Apostle, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the observation deck of the Foshay Tower, and lastly the Guthrie Theater.
We enjoyed having the students stop by and hope they had a great time the rest of their field trip.
