Refuge Update 47

Nov 09 2018

We are partnering with On Broadway, Inc. in Green Bay in hopes of receiving the Levitt AMP Grant which could help us create a new Music Series with original, local, and national artists. The series will take place at Leicht Memorial Park, building on the emerging renaissance of the On Broadway district with quality, original music from a variety of genres that will reflect and honor the multifaceted cultural influences and growing diversity of the community.

On Broadway, Inc. is one of three downtown revitalization organizations in Green Bay, and over 23 years the district has experienced a remarkable transformation from one of the city’s most avoided areas due to crime and unsafe conditions to one of the city’s most active and vibrant districts filled with boutiques, entertainment, restaurants and historic renovations. On Broadway hosts many successful events including Wisconsin’s second largest farmers market, igNight Market, the Fourth of July celebration and our own Hopeland festival which attracts foot traffic to the area throughout the year.

The Levitt AMP Music Series will reflect the essence of the Levitt AMP Grant award with a goal to restore the thriving music scene Green Bay once held in the 1980s by providing the community with opportunities to discover and appreciate diverse musical expressions and in so doing, bringing people together.

On Broadway is one of 41 finalists for the grant, and we encourage you to vote to help us create a new way for people to come together, appreciate the value of public spaces, and socialize over music that unites us. Voting ends on November 20th and you can vote here.
