If you’re near Baltimore this weekend, you gotta come out to the FREE outdoor arts festival that’s part of ROOTS Fest 2011.
Even if youhaven’t been able to take part in the National Learning Exchange, or see any of the awesome performances happening all around Baltimore this week, some of the most exciting stuff is still to come- like Talib Kweli tomorrow night at 9pm!
ROOTS Fest is being held on the notorious “Highway to Nowhere” in the heart of West Baltimore. It’s seeking to give new life to what can be, could be, would be, when the community comes together and plans development for itself. “Highway to Nowhere” is emblamatic of what happens when outside interests shape a community, and ROOTS Fest is where art and culture imagine the possibilities for a more just and beautiful urban landscape.
Kidz City is super excited to be part of the Interactive Arts Pavilion, which is happening both Saturday and Sunday on the corner of Gilmore and Franklin.
