Tired of shopping local, and longing to philosophize about the whole idea of it? Catch The Housewarming Sessions, a multimedia site-specific performance presented by THE BLUEPRINTING PROJECT, in Pilsen this Saturday, August 30, at 7 and 9 pm. The performance attempts to answer the question, "How do we build and sustain community in an urban environment?" Your attendance might just be the first step. [The Blueprinting Project]
