“Rooted Neighbors” To Debut At Glass Street Live Saturday

Friday, November 8, 2019
The first Neighboroots Performance Grant awardee will showcase Glass Farms’ history on Saturday at the Glass Street Live neighborhood block party. 

Glass House Collective was awarded a grant through the City of Chattanooga’s Neighboroots initiative earlier this year for their submission of “Rooted Neighbors.” The performance includes original spoken word, choreography and music from local creators like Erika Roberts, Pop-Up Project and Anthony Wiley, also known as “Brophesor X.” 

Neighboroots was created to honor and preserve the people, places and events that helped shape Chattanooga’s neighborhoods through historical markers, performance grants and public art projects. 

Mayor Andy Berke will introduce the first “Rooted Neighbors” performance at 2 p.m.
There will be additional performances every hour until 5 p.m.
