anikOur guest speaker is Anik Kurkjian, Director of the Mapping a Modern Mississippi campaign via the Mississippi Museum of Art.

Anik will discuss the groundbreaking project and share some of the most memorable encounters from traveling Mississippi, collecting stories from amazing, innovative, and creative people who define what it means to be a modern Mississippians. Oh, and if you didn’t know, Anik is a native of England. If for no other reason, please come for the pleasant British accent!



We also have an update on MWB’s Fast Forward Mississippi special coding project, Kids Code Mississippi. In partnership with Springboard to Opportunities, Kids Code MS landed a Google RISE Award which has allowed to implement a “Cyber Summer” multi-week workshop series for children in Springboard’s multi-family housing footprint. We’ll review the Kids Code MS two-generational hackathons also being staged this summer.

And in another special presentation, MWB creative director and co-brewmeister Marc Leffler will talk about his “Spark-o-Creativity” program soon to be implemented via the library system in Jackson.

Oh… and plenty of great craft beer for the sampling.
