Sunset Series: A Way with Words
April 21 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Water Street Tampa launches our inaugural Sunset Series in April with a well-earned digital break.
Surrendering to your creative senses, explore, listen and create with words as you join with friends in a unique evening of fun exploring Water Street Tampa. Some of the evening’s activities include storytelling with Tampa Bay History Center, listening to Jamie Dawson, a local spoken word artist, literary-themed cocktails from Small Giant and original music by Syd Live, a local singer songwriter.
Experience these Activities
+ The Paper Seahorse, a local boutique, allows you to put your thoughts to paper. Experience the sense of touch as your fingers travel back in time while clicking the keys to create a little written treasure on an old typewriter or beautifully handcrafted paper.
+ Yard-sized dice game, Haikubes, offers a chance to throw and create your own Haiku to share with the world or keep just for you.
+ Gio’s Typos will create a poem on demand with whatever small thought is on your mind.
+ Participate in a community art project by writing your intention, then folding a paper crane to become part of a sculpture that will be created during the evening.
