Inauguration Event and Fundraiser

The Earth House Collective at 237 N. East St. is hosting an Historic Inaugural Celebration and restoration fundraiser on January 20th from 6:45pm – 11:00 pm featuring live music, keynote speakers, green vendors and grassroots organizations bringing real change to Indianapolis. This all-ages event celebrates the future we are building together and features a full musical lineup including Sarah Grain, TJ Reynolds, Kate Lamont, and the Grogan Violin Duet. The (Re)Collective Company will premier part of a new work that fuses dance, sound and rhythm into a new element, and you're sure to be inspired by the speakers who will take the mic between sets. The suggested donation of $10.00 will directly benefit the restoration of the historic site.

great celebration last night...I'd like to find out more about Earth House but am older and find it hard to read your web site/ blog because of the black background and small font size...could you change the background or something please?

thanks, Michael Ryan
