Join the Creative Somerville Series in one of our monthly 'fireside chats’ with MaryCat Chaikin of Relish.
MaryCat Chaikin is a cofounder of Relish, a project management and consulting firm for placemaking, food-based & creative economy initiatives. Relish partners with municipalities, developers, and community organizations to plan, create and manage neighborhood activation projects including markets, collaborative work spaces, and public art. From launching iconic local experiences such as the Fluff Festival to finding temporary uses for properties awaiting redevelopment, to running local farmers markets which generate over $2.5 M in economic impact, the team has its hands in many of the exciting projects around town and beyond that support local food systems and creative industries.
Just in: Canteen & Co. will be back this month with Soba Noodle Bowls with Miso Curry Sauce for $10 (soba noodles with bok choy, ribboned carrots, pickled cabbage, avocado and a homemade miso curry sauce). Local. Whole. And made from Scratch. :)
Check-in, buy some dinner from Canteen & Co. 6:30, grab a beer in Aeronaut's taproom and mingle from 6:30 p.m. on. Then get ready for the talk, which begins at 7:15 p.m.
When & Where
Creative Somerville Series
The Creative Somerville Series is a series of ‘fireside chats’ with local creatives & entrepreneurs in design, tech, food, social impact, and other fields--celebrating the creative and entrepreneurial energy that makes Somerville great. The Creative Somerville Series is not your typical power point and Q&A. Our fireside chats are about getting to hear someone’s story, learning about how they think and create, and sharing ideas in an intimate setting. Cosponsored by Somerville Local First.
