Hudson Winter Walk is This Saturday, December 3!

Every year on the first Saturday in December, Hudson’s Warren street becomes a winter wonderland and celebration of the holidays. The street is closed to automobile traffic and becomes a pedestrian promenade. Most of the stores and galleries use Winter Walk to premier their holiday-inspired decorated store front windows, and stay open later than usual. The all-ages festivities including a parade down Warren that culminates in a fireworks show.

This year, which is the 20th Anniversary of Winter Walk, will also include live reindeers, and performers throughout town, including carolers, fire-throwing jugglers, and one saxophone-playing Santa Claus. Hudson Winter Walk is This Saturday, December 3! Unsilent Night. Unsilent Night is an original composition by Phil Kline, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December.

Unsilent Night

It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music in the form of a cassette, CD, or Mp3. Together all four tracks comprise Unsilent Night. The fact that the participants play different "parts" simultaneously helps create the special sound of the piece. Participants carry boomboxes, or anything that amplifies music, and simultaneously start playing the music. Unique Markets. FavouriteThings. Pop-up shop. Bake Sale!

Instead of devoting square-footage solely to co-working, a handful of organizations are making space do double duty.

The Smartest New Co-Working Spaces Do Double Duty in Libraries and Restaurants

As cities scramble to build, many are looking to accrue space where it seems to be absent. It’s not a matter of alchemy; sometimes, it’s hiding in plain sight. In New York City, some developers have tapped space under the sidewalks, in the form of a submerged, subterranean park; in Hong Kong, Los Angeles, and Baltimore, communities have invigorated the alleys winding behind and across more-trampled thoroughfares, putting them to work as retail hubs and community gathering places.

The common denominator: squeezing utility out of every conceivable square foot. But what if you needed to look no further than a restaurant at off-peak hours? To cater to the habits of a free-range workforce, accelerating the demand for co-working spaces, some cities are looking to make existing spaces more flexible, serving different purposes—for different users—throughout the day.

Coworking: An economic development idea for rural America?

But when we think of laptop-armed telecommuters tapping away in coffee shops, it’s usually very specific places that come to mind, places like San Francisco and New York City. But can remote work tech fulfill its promise of freeing us from location dependence and bring the promise of better jobs to rural areas? It’s an idea we’ve covered before, noting the trend of “rural sourcing,” which offers the dual benefits of lower wages to companies and economic development to out-of-the-way places (also, plenty of workers simply prefer the lifestyle – and lower property prices – of more rural area).

But it’s not just corporate remote employees that are bringing big city work into small towns; co-working spaces are hoping to achieve the same thing for freelancers, startups and small businesses. At least that’s what local Kentucky-focused site KYForward recently suggested. How To Start A Rural Coworking Community. Earlier this week, Shareable featured a post about coworking in rural areas and small cities.

How To Start A Rural Coworking Community

In the post, coworking space owners shared insights about rural entrepreneurs and how coworking can encourage innovation in traditionally low-tech areas. Studies by the Kauffman Foundation conclude that small businesses and entrepreneurs are the most effective economic engines of small communities, said Frank DePalma of CoLab USA. Rural coworking, anyone? A couple years ago, when I was finishing my Ph.D. dissertation, I was a briefly a member of NextSpace, a coworking space in Santa Cruz, CA, one of many now being created in many locations globally (there’s even a coworking space in Mongolia!). NextSpace: 1 Year of Success in an Economic Downturn (abridged) from NextSpace Coworking on Vimeo. Even though I didn’t have much chance to participate in the community, I enjoyed the relaxed, friendly, serendipitous atmosphere, and the busy feeling of people at work.

Coworking To Create A More Independent Food System. According to a new Oxfam report, the global food system is broken and as a result, we are losing decades of progress against hunger. The report, "Growing A Better Future," outlines the symptoms of today’s broken food system: growing hunger, flat-lining yields, a scramble for fertile land and water and rising food prices. The analysis shows that in the near future, depletion of natural resources and accelerating climate change will make it harder to feed a swelling human population.

To help address this crisis, Oxfam endorses a return to small-scale local farming as a way to provide communities with high quality, affordable food. In urban areas, community farms, balcony gardens and access to Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs) help people regain control of their diet while also bolstering a self-sufficient food system. The FLO movement currently feeds the commons lots of great software and information, but it can also feed the commons amazing local food," said Balkind.

Rather than let all that prime space go to waste, a restaurant, real estate developer and non-profit collaborated to create one of the City's first pop-up farms.

Instead of dusty potholes and the odd pile of litter, a stalled construction site at 430 East 29th Street now boasts a temporary urban farm. Thanks to the hard work of volunteer farmers, thousands of easily-transportable milk crates serve as planters for 85 different crops grown in the shadow of the Empire State buidling. How To Create A Pop-Up Coworking Space. The sharing economy is a new way of living in which access is valued over ownership, experience is valued over material possessions, and "mine" becomes “ours” so everyone's needs are met without waste. This new paradigm means that spaces and services become more temporary: they "pop-up" to meet a need or facilitate a community, and fade away or change forms when the need has been filled. We've already explored ways that the coworking movement has capitalized on the pop-up concept to introduce mobile professionals to this new style of collaborative work.

Coworking: An economic development idea for rural America? Coworking Provides A Haven For Rural Entrepreneurs. Coworking is a collaborative style of work in which mobile professionals share a common space as well as ideas. Perfectly suited to the location-independent lifestyles of graphic designers, software developers, writers, coworking has taken many of the "laptop professions" by storm, and grown rapidly in almost every major city of the United States. It makes sense that major cities and metropolitan areas would be hubs of technological innovation.

Every entrepreneur and start-up CEO knows that the big city is where the innovation happens. Or is it? Working Bath - The Guild.
