April 5, 2018

Thursday

Carving Out the Commons, Red Emma’s, 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

Author Amanda Huron speaks about mass evictions and gentrification in Washington, D.C. during the ‘70s and about how residents responded by creating collectively owned and governed urban commons.

Friday

Neighborhood Lights, Conkling Street Garden, 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Come and enjoy one of the first installations of Baltimore’s Light City in Highlandtown. This event features live music and catered Mexican food.

Othello, The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory, 8 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.

Head to Hampden to check out the opening night of this classic play with the original pronunciation performed as Shakespeare would have heard it. Don’t worry — the bard’s clever writing makes the show easier to understand than you’d think. Tickets are pay-what-you-want.

Saturday

Project Clean Stream, Lake Roland, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Bring along a life jacket to help fight pollution in our waters. Free. But you must provide your own kayak or canoe.

Catch episode three of this live game show: Word Wars. A six person panel dukes it out to show who can most cleverly arrange morphemes. No cover.

Sunday

Anything But Brushes, Holt Park, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

The Holt Center for the Arts brings this fun painting experience, where you can use anything to make your work of art — except a brush. $2 per project.
