Monday evening, May 18, Honey Space will host its first fundraising event for its next phase. The event, titled Visions and Sounds, will be a joint fundraiser and celebration with friend Tucker Robbins in mutual support of projects here, and Tucker Robbins’ Central Green, Tucker’s vision for breathing life into an historic community center- Central High School, in Painter Virginia. The event will be built around food and sound- a gourmet buffet dinner accompanied by The Gamelatron, the world’s first and only fully robotic Indonesian styled Gamelan Orchestra by Zemi17 and the League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots (LEMUR); a live performance by songwriter Emily Arin, and sculptural sound installations by Thomas Beale and Adam Stanforth. Tickets are available online and at the door on a sliding scale of $35-$100. You can purchase them online at by following the link here.
About Central Green: Tucker Robbins’ Central Green, currently in development with a planned opening date of late 2009, is a vision of a sustainable community center in Painter, Virginia, built around the traditional arts and local community and environment. Encompassing 23,000 square feet of historic Central High School, Central Green will include a residency program for both local craftspeople from the Eastern Virginia region and remote cultures abroad, an organic garden and restaurant, educational programs, and meditation and yoga classes, all powered by green energy technologies.
