The Road to Nuçi's Space

We  always jump at an opportunity to  develop stronger ties to our great Athens community and so joining in with ACC Adopt-A-Highway and Keep Athens Beautiful  was always in our minds. When we applied it was doubly exciting to discover that   the  1.2 mile stretch of Oconee Street   from S Williams to Oak  Street was available as it runs right by  our building. Though we have done our first clean up  we do anticipate a further  4 or 5 clean ups a year and while we are looking forward to organizing ours we encourage and  hope we inspire other businesses and nonprofits to join in, adopt  and help make Athens just a little more beautiful.
For more information on becoming part of our clean up crew contact lesley@nuci.org  subject  " Adopt-a-Highway "

1BlueString Campaign - Performers Needed: March 7th

More information

This is an awareness campaign to support the 1 in 6 men who had unwanted or abusive sexual experiences in childhood. The 1BlueString campaign is simple. We are asking guitarists, at all levels, to replace their low E (top) guitar string with one of our free blue guitar strings to symbolize the 1 in 6 men. 

The Cottage and Nuci’s Space is holding an event with musicians and supporters to kick off the 1BlueString campaign at Nuci’s Space on March 7th from 5:30-7pm. We would like to invite musicians to play, speakers to speak and supporters to join with us. The focus of this campaign is to create a dialogue around the issue of childhood sexual abuse of men, with the hope of DE-stigmatizing the issue and reaching more people who may be dealing with the effects of abuse as adults.

This will be a great night of stories and celebrations and it is FREE!

We hope you can join us!

*If you would like to perform one or two songs on your acoustic guitar on March 7th anytime between 5:30-7pm, please email Sally Sheppard (sally@northeorgiacottage.org) at The Cottage by March 1st.*
