Make & Take Saturdays


Silver City MainStreet/ Arts & Cultural District is partnering with the Future Forge and various community groups to offer an arts and cultural experience to residents of Grant county. The Future Forge has offered space for a table at the Maker’s Market, held May through October on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 PM at the Main Street Plaza in downtown Silver City. This table can be used to offer free, family oriented activities for residents of Grant county.

The purpose is to increase engagement in downtown via an arts and cultural experience and targeted to youth and families.

Possible experience­s can be an easy Make and Take activity, an opportunit­y to touch artifacts, a poetry reading, or making a seed bomb. Kits can also be made for children and families to take home to make. Silver City MainStreet will be able to offer a small stipend for supplies in addition to a table and chairs to use.

This activity gives you the opportunit­y to engage and educate residents about your organizati­on in a fun way and to promote any upcoming events you may be planning. Once your organizati­on is scheduled, Silver City MainStreet will publicize your experience.
