Civic Arts: How to Build Your Neighborhood Incrementally over time!

"Just Don't Mess it Up!" Monte Anderson, Dallas-based developer/ community activist said as he took a walk through Hamtramck a few summers ago. Monte has slowly worked to improve his neighborhood in South Dallas over the last 30 years. We're excited to have him back to do a talk-- He'll discuss how to cultivate the neighborhood you live in through development. 

Do you want to learn more about how you can become a small real estate developer for a project in your neighborhood?  Are you an advocate or local leader looking to encourage better buildings in your community?

Monte Anderson is the CEO/President at Options Real Estate Investments, Inc. and Founding Member At Incremental Development Alliance.

Timeship #39

TIMESHIP #39 is a museum built by two time travelers back from the year 2113. They have come to America, 2018 to share environmental warnings and inspirations, and to begin reimagining how to build a better future on this toxic and troubled planet. They chose to travel to 2018 believing this is the perfect time to make changes to create an inclusive, sustainable future.

The exhibits are designed to spark ideas, conversation, & change. You're invited onboard to experience our curious collection and inspirations past, present, & future! 

"Our time-traveling school bus has been converted into an educational museum.
We travel throughout America's heartland in search of open-minded individuals who can take in our museum's warnings of environmental degradation and turn these horrors into imaginative creations and actions for a better future.
We aim to inspire grassroots movements across middle and southern America that can pave the way for a sustainable future.  Visitors to our bus are invited to make a change or initiate a project in their town and share their work using the #MissionTIMESHIP tag."
