The seems to be a growing consensus among our more thoughtful political, cultural, and economic leaders that Milwaukee must become a city with lots more cool things for creative young people to do outside of work.
I think that Bucketworks and Timbuktu will become two destinations for after work creative class workers, young, middle aged, and old, to have good times and advance their personal and public causes.
Bucketworks is a playground of the mind.
Timbuktu is a place for deep encounters with the culture and music of Mother Africa.
As time goes by I hope to use this space to let people know all the good things going on in both of these places of great promise for our fair city.
The Sufi poetry of RumiAndHafiz is one thing I hope will be happening at both Bucketworks and Timbuktu.
