On Wednesday, November 12, we've got a full night planned for our Rapidian community.

Right at 5 p.m., we invite you to come along on a color tour and architectural photowalk through Heritage Hill. Our walk will be lead by Tour GR guide and photography enthusiast Jim Winslow. The walk kicks off the new Picturesque gallery, "Ch-ch-changes," with submissions open to anyone for a full month. 

The theme this season is change, and though the Pictureque gallery will be open to images of all kinds of change, the photowalk itself will focus on the change of seasons and how architecture has changed over the years.. Winslow will be sharing his historical insights into places in Heritage Hill. 

The walk will begin at The Cottage Bar at 18 LaGrave Avenue SE and end there as well, where photowalkers can join others in supporting The Rapidian in another evening of their series of fundraising events called "Nights Out for The Rapidian." This Night Out will be the final chance to support The Rapidian at a Night Out for the year, with 15 percent of food and drink purchases from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. going directly back to The Rapidian, thanks to the generosity of the owners of The Cottage. 

The photowalk event is free and open to the public. Amatures and professional photographers alike are welcome to participate. Any format camera is acceptable, from smartphone to DSLR. Or for the old school, analog.

The walk begins at 5 p.m. and lasts approximately an hour. Rapidian staff will be on site at The Cottage to answer questions, share stories and drink libations. Bring a willingness to socialize, meet new people and support local citizen journalism. 

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.
