☆☆ We are hosting a full day of all things awesome—Awesome Foundation that is! ☆☆

VAE is home to the RDU Chapter of the Awesome Foundation, an international organization that empowers (and pays!) creative thinkers to dream up ideas that make their communities that much more, well, awesome! VAE awards $1000 every single month to folks who care about community and think outside the box!

Now it’s time to celebrate the projects that have been funded so far, and encourage more folks to step up and be Awesome! Join us October 25 for a full day of creativity and Awesome!

8:30 - 10 AM @ Moore Square
Join us for a collaboration between Awesome Foundation and CreativeMornings RDU as Christina Lorena Weisner kicks off our day by discussing the floating art and science lab she built and then floated down the Neuse River with funds from the Awesome Foundation.
☆Read more about Christina's project HERE.
