Marc Steiner Radio Show Can Station North Save Baltimore City?”

No. The only thing that might save Station North is Station North = inclusive participation in conversations, decision-making and designing neighborhood revitalization. So, why not local community development rather than the status quo? Something like GEDCO (Govans Ecumenical Development Corporation).

Premiere showing of the “Gentrification (k)NOT Project Documentary”


This (75 minute) documentary explores the meaning of the term gentrification. How it might be an element of  a system that displaces people from their homes during urban revitalization. It presents multiple views about a neighborhood in flux known as Station North in Baltimore, Maryland, and what the possibilities might be. It weaves footage from three local events, the 10th Anniversary party of Station North in September 2012, WEAAs Morning Blend radio show recorded live at Station North ARTS Cafe on 12/12/12, and  a conference, “A Path Forward Toward Equitable and Sustainable Development,” held at  Sojourner Douglas College in March 2013.

Join us if you dare….

JUNE 2013

Throughout the month of June 2013 there will be a variety of types of presentations, discussions, lectures, art exhibits, movies, performances, music, and conversations about:

How how we can avoid — prevent the gentrification of our urban neighborhoods such as Station North?

If you live, work, play, or hang out in Station North your involvement is especially important, although anyone is welcome to participate.

Participation by all is vital to generating sustainable communities.

We don’t need a new paradigm, paradigms are an element of a problem.
We do need and I want new models — for thinking and doing.


We want everyone who wants to participate to participate, so that we can converse fairly and generate a model or two for sustainable revitalization in our urban areas like Station North. Please complete the form so we can organize the events and support your participation.

We are looking for people, artists, activists, academics, neighbors, and others (even politicians) who might be interested in participating in exhibits/events/dialogues that will take place in and around Station North during the month of June (Home Ownership Month) 2013.

If you want to do a performance or installation in June, we want to facilitate that.
