Friday March 3 5-7 PM at Conspire: Contemporary Craft
Join local artist Teresa McGuire to discuss a collection of her work at Conspire.
Teresa describes the inspiration for her art as “…the love I feel for my family, my small town of Greencastle and my passion for running at DePauw University’s Nature Park. There is an overt organic aspect to most of my art that embodies my appreciation for the beauty within nature and the adoration I feel for Mother Earth. Overall my work is a profound reflection of my life’s journey.”
Refreshments and tea will be available.
Take some time over your lunch break Friday to sample ten of our favorite tea blends, and do a little last-minute shopping for your Valentine! We’ll have a variety of our favorite black, green, and herbal tea blends available for tasting amid a mad-hatter style collection of vintage teapots, cups and saucers. If you’ve been wondering about one of our house teas, this is your chance to sip!
Tea will be served Friday, February 10 from 11-1 pm at Conspire.
Have you noticed our growing selection of books and cds by Greencastle writers and musicians? We now offer a carefully curated collection of the very best of our local arts scene.
So far our artists and musicians include:
Supporting the work of these local artists is a great way to help our music and literary scene in Greencastle grow.
Are you interested in increasing resources and support for underserved communities in Greencastle? Let’s get together and make it happen! We will be discussing possibilities for a local LGBTQ+ nonprofit group, a local chapter of Standing Up for Racial Justice, and more. Please bring an open mind and your ideas for making Greencastle a more welcoming and accepting place for all. Tea and light refreshments will be available in the Conspire studio, and kids are welcome.
Thursday, January 26. 6-7 PM at Conspire.
It’s a pretty diverse and colorful bunch of people who come through the doors of Conspire. Together, we’ve been brainstorming ways to use our presence in Greencastle to support marginalized groups in Indiana and encourage the kind of diversity and acceptance we want to see in our town. Conspire now carries some products that make a statement about diversity, and we will be donating the proceeds to groups that we have identified as making a difference where it’s needed. You will find the first of these products in the shop:
- Black Lives Matter bumper stickers. Proceeds from the sales of these stickers will be donated to the Gary, Indiana chapter of Black Lives Matter.
- Full sized rainbow flags. Proceeds go to Freedom Indiana, fighting for equality for LGBTQ people.
- Pick up a copy of the book club selections for the new Greencastle LGBT Book Club, meeting monthly at the Putnam County Public Library. We will carry copies of the current book club pick and can provide information about meetings.
Have ideas about ways Conspire can be a supportive presence for underserved groups? Let us know!
