This article about Spokane and hope and basketball (I'll let you make the correlations) has Spokanites up in arms! Here at Spark Central, we're taking the chance to see respondents wax poetic (and sometimes aggressive!) on the many flourishing communities and loads of awesome stuff to do in Spokane.
Like this hilarious article from Shawn Vestal, who donates his times and writing chops to Spark Central. Or this call and response article in the Inlander, written by Daniel Walters. These have us thinking that Spokane is, dare we say it, a pretty neat place to live?
The most important component of thriving communities is, of course, you! You’re the ones who are starting groups and making stuff and dreaming big and writing and being kind and supporting cool stuff. All of the things that make superb communities that people want to be a part of.
And that’s one of the things we love about the Inland Northwest Community Foundation, it’s made of people from the community who are working to make it a better place to live. We are honored to be a recipient of one of their Community Grants and are working to put the money back into the community through innovative programs, access to technology and tools and a supportive creative community. Thank you to the INWCF and thank YOU, for making Spokane a place full of creativity, imagination, and innovation!
