We have selected the next site for the Foster Window Project. It is the future Cafe Red, an extension of Red Castle Games.
While there are eventual plans for the cafe, they are on hold for a while. These enthusiastic good neighbors have helped us craft this call in the spirit of their establishment and now we ask you, our neighbors of all ages:
TELL US A MAKE-BELIEVE STORY!
The chosen story will be made into a 3-D window art display with the help of neighborhood volunteers! You can write a short story or draw your ideas, or both, then submit your entry in person or by mail at Red Castle Games: 6406 SE Foster Rd, Portland, OR 97206
or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading: Red Castle Window.
We’ll be accepting entries now through June 30th. We will present the entries to the Mt Scott Arleta Neighborhood Association on July 1st and the Foster Powell Neighborhood Association on July 13th to narrow down to the top three finalists. Online voting at www.fosterwindowproject.wordpress.com will begin on July 14th and run through July 31st. Volunteer art parties for the creation of the winning entry will take place in August (stay tuned to the website for announcements).
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Help us spread the word and get lots of entries. Tell your neighbors, tell your kids, tell your kids’ teachers’ so that they can involve students. Talk about it and share information on online community forums. When it’s time to choose, show up at the neighborhood meeting, vote online for your favorite, keep spreading the word. When it’s time to make the art, volunteer to help out, keep spreading the word.
