Arts & Ideas Sudbury School,the only democratic school in Baltimore, is happy to be back home with friends in Hamilton for a year while looking for their forever home. The school, founded by two professors from the neighborhood of Arcadia, spent last year in Mt. Washington where it had moved to find room to grow. The aging St. John's building, where the school was located, went on the market in June and the school community voted to return to the Church of the Messiah. Arts & Ideas, a school for students ages 5 to 18, opened in 2008 and spent its first five years at the Harford and White location. It is one of two Sudbury Schools in Maryland. The Sudbury model of education was started in 1968 in Framingham, MA. Arts & Ideas currently has 48 students, which is near capacity at the Messiah location, so the school is continuing its search for a location where it can grow and put down long-term roots. The school community will vote on a location later this year, and students are part of the decision-making process. Meanwhile, Arts & Ideas is happy to be back at the beautiful Messiah location that we enjoyed for so many years.
Upcoming Open Houses for learning more about Arts & Ideas and the Sudbury model of education: November 8, January 10, February 7 and April 11 from 11:00 to 2:00.
This past August the school was also featured on the front page of the Baltimore Sun:
Re: Get on Your Dancing Shoes: Local Music Series begins in Northeast Baltimore
The North by Northeast American Roots Music Series, a showcase for unique local musicians, starts Saturday night, November 8, with the hip-shaking, ear-tingling rhythm/blues/funk of Baltimore's veteran party band, The (Shameless) Mooks -- along with the guitar-and-blues harp duo Patapsco Delta Boys, who play from the catalogue of blues, rags, jugband music, early country, early jazz and mountain music -- plus original songs in those traditions.
This show is the first of six monthly events* planned at The Church of the Messiah, 5801 Harford Road in Hamilton, NE Baltimore City.
Doors open at 8:00 PM and the music goes to 11:30 PM.
This is a family-friendly event in Northeast Baltimore. Admission is $10, and $5 for kids 10 years old and under. Refreshments: BYOB; hot food, pie, and non-alcoholic beverages will be on sale.
And don't worry, there really is a lot of free parking, both at the church lot (off White Ave.) and on Harford Road. We want you to have a good time.
* Future shows include The Stone Hill All-Stars (December) and Boister (January).
The Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance at the Jacob France Institute in the University of Baltimore is conducting an important 5-minute survey to learn more about people who moved within Baltimore City or between the city
and nearby counties.
Please participate in this research by clicking here and resending this email to family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers—especially people who have moved recently or are thinking about moving. The survey will continue through Monday November 3, 2014. This research, funded by Goldseker Foundation, supports the mayor’s vision to Grow Baltimore. Thank you!
