Enhancing community connections in Cincinnati, by reclaiming alleys, sidewalks, and steps for the pedestrian.
Believe it or not, it’s been nearly ten years since our first cleanup event in 2012. Since then, we have hosted nearly 200 alley and stairway cleanups throughout Cincinnati, not to mention dozens of alley pop-up events, and a slew of walking tours with engaging themes around public space and urban history.
We would love it if you can join us to celebrate A Decade of Safer Stairs + Alleys – Saturday, February 26, 2022 from 2pm to 5pm – at Listermann Brewing Company (1621 Dana Ave)!!!
In addition to a photo retrospective spanning the years, you’ll find lawn bowling in the beer hall; a raffle of street art, photography, and other prizes; AND an exclusive variant on Listermann’s classic dunkel! The extremely fine and generous folks at the brewery are helping us pump up the volume by brewing ALLEY ELEVATOR, a dunkel with cherry, vanilla, and coffee (5.4% ABV). 10% of each pour will benefit Spring in Our Steps.
The raffle will feature several partners over the years, including:
• Rick Calkins (photography)
• Elliston Poetry Room at Langsam Library (mixed media)
• Queen City Bike (urban rolling)
• Nick Swartsell (photography/mixed media)
• Technique2012 (wheatpaste art)
This will roll through the afternoon as a fundraiser, so the raffle and beer proceeds will help support our ongoing work: (1) improving the St. Joe & Wendell Alley connections to a reopened Wendell Alley Steps; (2) a cobblestone restoration of Peete Alley in Mt. Auburn; (3) a safer walking experience throughout the Ohio Avenue Steps in Clifton Heights; and several other projects in North Fairmount and in Covington to restore walking connections.
See you there!
