One of the many project’s the EPIcrew is working on is a festival for June 4+5, 2010 known as Project Green River.You may be wondering, “But, I thought you guys were designers and/or architects or something? Why organize an event?” Well, we have chosen to take on an event (in addition to renovating Baxter) based on other demands of the town. Working closely with the Green River Chamber of Commerce, we quickly realized there needs to be a events outside of Melon Days. The town wants more activity and tourism… reasons to celebrate life in Green River. So, this is our answer! Project Green River is a music, art, and film festival run by local volunteers (The Chamber of Commerce, Americorps VISTA’s, local City Council members, and enthusiastic residents) to raise money for affordable housing. Green River, Utah suffers from generational poverty, substandard living conditions, and lacks affordable housing options. The festival will unite the community and allow them to gain ownership of their future, increase awareness, and stimulate the struggling economy.
