Nuçi's Space launch an Amazing Unique Indiegogo Campaign

Reconstruction of the Steeple 
"When you look at the list of musicians who have come together to collaborate with us on this project, it becomes evident what a special place Athens, Georgia is in the history of pop music: the B-52s, R.E.M., Pylon, Widespread Panic, Neutral Milk Hotel, Drive-By Truckers, Of Montreal, OliviaTremorControl/Circulatory System, and Danger Mouse"


Oh , it doesn't stop there, the artists associated with the bands , they created  one off limited edition signed and numbered poster art. The musicians took off their cloths and gave up their guitars. All of this came together  to help rebuild the steeple and use it  as a megaphone to inform the world about Nuçi's Space and the work it does providing obstacle free treatment  for musicians suffering from depression and other such disorders and so much more.

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.*
