SPOTLIGHT: OPEN CHAMPAIGN
On Saturday March 12, we officially kicked off the Open Champaign series of mini-events with the Sidewalk Living Room. With our partners from the Up Center, we set up a living room in front of Cafe Kopi, creating a space where people could simply walk up and spend a few minutes of their time connecting with each other through conversation, games, and so on. The planning team consisted of CC members and UP Center members, with everyone involved contributing ideas and collaborating to make this happen! Throughout the afternoon, we had a great time getting to know folks who came by. It was relaxed and exciting as everyone shared personal stories, sometimes serious and sometimes full of laughter. See the photos below and look out for more Open Champaign events to come!
