"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.

I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.

Bull City Arts Collective

Location: Durham, NC

Website: www.bullcityarts.org

The Bull City Arts Collaborative (BCAC) is an arts and creative professional alliance comprised of four studios producing commissioned work and retail artworks in a variety of media. The BCAC was established in 2006 by Dave Wofford and Kenny Dalsheimer and is located in the Central Park District of Durham at 401 Foster Street.

We host open studios on the Third Friday of each month from 6 – 9pm as part of Third Friday Durham. We often hold receptions for guest artists during these events.

The Upfront Gallery features members' work as well as a curated guest artist exhibit space. It is open Fridays from 11am – 2pm, Saturdays 9am – Noon, and by appointment at dave@horseandbuggypress.com.

BCAC members collaborate with a diverse group of individuals and organizations both locally and nationally on projects large and small. Currently, the BCAC houses the documentary film and video production studio of The Groove Productions, the graphic design, fine press publishing, and letterpress printing shop of Horse & Buggy Press and photography studios Rileymacclean Photography and megapixie.

Please let Dave know if would like to be added to our mailing list – dave@horseandbuggypress.com/
