Young Urbanists - PechaKucha Night - Vol. 29: Image Building

Nashville Civic Design Center and the Frist Art Museum host PechaKucha - Vol. 29 with the theme of Architecture and Photography. 

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. 

PechaKucha Nashville is hosted by NCDC's Ron Yearwood, and features artwork by local artists on the posters created for each event.

Adventure Science Center's Science Enthusiasts - Yoga Under the Stars

Adventure Science Center's Science Enthusiasts - Yoga Under the Stars

Stunning NASA visualizations, 6.5 million stars, and inner peace await at Yoga Under the Stars. 

While normal yoga practices focus on finding inner peace, Yoga Under the Stars brings an outward shift to the experience. The stunning visuals displayed on the Sudekum Planetarium’s magnificent 63-foot dome inspire thought on the scale of the universe and humanity’s place within it.

The darkness combined with a 360-degree view of the stars can disorient some yogis making achieving balance an even more challenging activity... meaning it's perfect for intermediate-level yogis looking for a unique, new experience.

Each session will begin with breath work, continue with positions to elevate the heart, and end in savasana to relax the body and the mind.

Don't forget to BYOM - Bring Your Own Mat!

COST: $17 for ASC members; $22 for non-members
Spaces are limited - register in advance!

Yoga Under the Stars is held the last Saturday of each month in the Sudekum Planetarium, unless otherwise noted. Subject to change.

Nashville Junior Chamber - 3rd Annual Pedals and Pints

Nashville Junior Chamber - 3rd Annual Pedals and Pints

Everyone’s favorite Sunday Funday is back for the third year in a row! Join your friends from the Nashville Junior Chamber for the Third Annual Pedals & Pints, Nashville’s best salute to summer. This years’ theme is “Spring Break ’99,” so grab a fanny pack and your favorite snapback and meet us at Nashville Pedal Tavern for the wildest party of the year. Bikes start running at 11am, and tickets for this event will sell out fast, so jump on this while you have the chance!

But the bikes are just half the fun. Just like Spring Break, the party is never really over, so once your ride is done, be sure to join us for the official Pedals & Pints after party. (Location to be announced soon!) We know a couple hours on a bike isn’t enough for you, so get ready to hang with us until the sun goes down. In fact, our friends at Lyft even hooked us up with a discount code to get you there, so save 10% off 2 rides to or from the event with code “PEDSNPINTS”.

This year's “Pints Sponsor,” The Boston Beer Company, has provided plenty of beer and hard beverages for each bike, so unless you plan on drinking something else, all you have to bring is yourself and a kick-ass spring break outfit. (Bike rules are the same as the beach, leave the glass at home and you’ll be fine. Seriously. I’ll yell at you.)

*Make sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before your bike is supposed to leave. Forms need to be signed, and I guarantee this rowdy group isn’t going to wait for you to catch up…

Why: Do we need a reason? Because what better way to salute summer than to pretend it’s spring break all over again.

Who: Anyone. Everyone. Own a tank top and enjoy being outside? You’re invited. Tell your friends!

Join CNM’s Young Nonprofit Professionals on Sept. 12 for a behind-the-scenes look at the Maddox Charitable Fund and enjoy a locally brewed beer from Bearded Iris. The event will be held at 100 Taylor St., home to both the Maddox Charitable Fund, Bearded Iris, and a number of small local artists and artisans. Other local private funders will be in attendance as well to give some information about their organizations and what it looks like to be a funder in Nashville.

Please join us for the Redneck Christmas in July Bar Crawl benefiting Special Olympics Tennessee! Pull out your best Redneck Christmas attire, beat the summer heat by cutting the sleeves off of your favorite ugly sweater, and bust out your jorts! This will be an event you won't want to miss! 

So here is how this festive crawl is going to work: 
1.Bring $40 cash- $20 will be a donation to Special Olympics Tennessee and $20 goes to one big bar tab.
2.The cash is given to 4 chosen people dressed in Santa Suits. The Santa's will choose a bar in the midtown/demonbreun area to post up at and will open up one big tab. 
3. The rest of the participants will break up into teams of 4-6 people and search the area for the four Jolly Saint Nicks! Every time you look in a bar and Santa isn't there, you and your team must finish 1 drink before you leave that bar. Beer, shot, cocktail, water, whatever, but a drink must be finished.
4. Once your team finds Santa, you drink on what remains of the tab.

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Learn about ongoing community needs, service opportunities, and ways that you can take on a leadership role in the Nashville volunteer community.

This event will feature Julie Abbott, the Community Partner Program Manager at Hands on Nashville, as she talks about HON’s crucial role as a capacity builder for volunteer programs in Nashville. HON has about 300 opportunities a month on their calendar and about 2000 volunteer signups. In 2017 HON connected or referred over 106,000 volunteers to service projects in Middle Tennessee. She will introduce you to the Hands On Connect platform for volunteer engagement in Nashville and teach us all how to become “team leaders” so we can recruit our friends and colleagues to make an even greater impact in the city.

This event will be hosted by Industrious, a provider of premium coworking and shared office space here in Nashville. They are opening up a new location downtown and were willing to host our event and provide the food and drink for the evening!
