  • The ArtsFest Schedule

    It's no secret that many of The Locals staff and volunteers also work with Conway ArtsFest.  We love an event that brings together so many different arts organizations, performers, and people in our beloved city.  So we're glad to help you find your way in the festival by posting the ArtsFest schedule, which you can also check out on their site. Read more to interact with the online schedule in all its glory.

     

  • The July Farm Tour

    Saturday’s farm tour was a wonderful experience. As the day progressed, so did our understanding of and appreciation for what goes into the food that we eat. We learned how a cool and rainy spring can have a profoundly negative effect on the farmers, and their goods. Most importantly, we got to connect with community members and each other in a way that we don’t usually take the time to do.

  • Welcome

    Thanks for checking out our blog!  This is the place where the staff and volunteers of La Lucha Space (and therefore projects like The Locals and The FC Urban Farm Project) will discuss their experiences, opinions, and other random thoughts on what's happening in our community.  Like any information you come across - we don't expect you to agree with or believe everything we say.. in fact, we encourage you to put on those critical thinking caps right alongside us.  Blog posts don't represent the organization as a whole, they are our effort to let more voices inside our organization represent themselves... and share what they do.
