St. Louis Street Musicians Guild and Performance Scheduleby Tom Hartbeck 05.16.13
everyone loves seeing a saxaphone player playing on the corner after the cards game. there is also the drummers that we see after sporting events. the loop is also a great place to find some street musicians and a great display of culture. the idea i propose is: An organized group of musitians and "managers" who are scheduled to perform at certain events. there would be a website or a Facebook/Twitter page that would have the schedule of the musicians and where they would be. the "managers" would simply be the PR for that spesific performer via eq. Instagram and Twitter. this would inturn market the city of St. Louis across social media and the web. this would enhance street culture in STL and would make it simalar to New Orleans and NYC.

We are lucky to live in St. Louis! T.S. Eliot Memorial and Literary Arts Creative Incubation Centerby Benjamin J. Siders 05.09.13
"It is self-evident that St. Louis affected me more deeply than any other environment has ever done. I feel that there is something in having passed one's childhood beside the big river, which is incommunicable to those people who have not. I consider myself fortunate to have been born here, rather than in Boston, or New York, or London." - T.S. Eliot. Eliot is one of St. Louis's most famous sons and yet there is little recognition of his contributions to the American literary arts in St. Louis. It's about time we change that.

The Plaza Downtownby MikeWoolf3 05.01.13
One problem with Downtown St. Louis is that there is not enough shopping for city residents and tourist. By creating a shopping district downtown it would be a huge step in reviving downtown and making St. Louis a better city. Since having a shopping mall failed downtown having a pedestrian mall wouldn't hurt. The boundaries of this district is Locust St. being the northern part, Tucker Blvd being West, Broadway being East, and having Pine St. the southern part.

I am a collector of African American artifacts of early St. Louis people. I have collected for over 30 years. I have done exhibits for local organizations and have been told many times that my collection need to be seen. I retired from teaching last year to work toward this project.

I have a large collection of African American artifacts dating back over 200 years. I want to create a source where people can come to do research. I will operate the center with volunteers and asking for 0 salary. Please help

The Sweet Potato Project: Planting Produce*Making Products*Creating Young Entrepreneursby sylvester 04.19.13
Crime, illegal drug sales, incarceration and the death of young people in low-income areas of St. Louis will continue to rise until we create viable, sustainable economic alternatives. The Sweet Potato Project summer program pays at-risk youth a bi-weekly stipend while they learn entrepreneurial skills. For 10 weeks they will plant produce and work to turn their yield into products they can sell today, In 2012, they created a sweet potato cookie. This is a micro-version of an extended large-scale food-based endeavor that will include farming, packaging, canning and distribution in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Our 2013 goal is to reach more youth (25), add structure and stability to the program and engage community residents in farming produce on vacant lots. We are seeking visionaries, volunteers and the resources to create a St. Louis major model for economic and social transformation with our youth and in long-neglected communities.
