Mmmwhah! in the Neighborhoods
Mmmwhah! started as a grass roots movement in the Holiday Neighborhood of Boulder, Colorado. We brought three Mmmwhahsome! Weekends of events in the Summer and weekly events through the Fall of 2017.
In 2018, we continued our work in North Boulder and extended to the Vista Village Mobile Home Park and the Crescent Neighborhood of southeast Boulder.
Responding to the Cry to Bring Mmmwhah! to Our Neighborhood
In 2018, after hearing the cry: "What about OUR neighborhood? Can we bring some Mmmwhah! events to our neighborhood?" The City of Boulder answered "YES!" and graciously offered grants to do just that. The City's Neighborhood Services division received more applications than for any other grant they had hosted, and selected 4 neighborhoods to bring a total of 7 events to. (Learn more>>)

In 2019, we are working closely with each neighborhood and custom-tailoring the events that will best suit their needs and wishes. These include:
launching a series of Poetry Jams -- which are running now and are open to the public. Please join us!
hosting an Earth & Art Festival
painting a street mural at a busy intersection near Melody Park to help slow traffic down and build community.
hosting a "Music, Movement, & Writing with the Light" photography stroll.
"Music infused collage of art bodies. Bringing together artists and non-artists of all mediums to share creatively in the moment and build community at a new level."
