SSTCI Presents: A Community Conversation!

On February 20, 2008, the Silver Spring Town Center, Inc. held its inaugural "Community Conversation" about the new Silver Spring Civic Building and Veterans Plaza at the Ceviche Restaurante in downtown Silver Spring! The jazz quartet "Aire Lune" performed.

The Silver Spring Town Center, Inc. (SSTCI) is sponsoring a series of community concerts in Silver Spring over the period January 2008 to June 2009. The concerts will be free to the public.

Drawing on voluntary contributions by local artists and local merchants, the SSTCI seeks to engage the Silver Spring community by providing opportunities for local artists to perform or exhibit their work to a wide audience in Silver Spring. We expect to feature jazz, blues, classical, Salsa, and world music in a variety of entertainment venues in the community, including South Silver Spring, Long Branch, and downtown Silver Spring.

Our goal is to foster greater appreciation for the arts, stimulate dialogue and networking between residents, and to support local businesses. We expect to increase the exposure of local artists and bring new customers to local businesses.

We want to develop key partnerships with local artists, performers and businesses so as to support the SSTCI mission of providing community based entertainment and educational program for the new Silver Spring Civic Building and Veterans Plaza.
