This is your invitation to lead and/or partner with TTWalks in planning an Agnes Riddle neighborhood history walk. The date, time and exact starting location will be announced as our plans evolve. If it is possible, we could begin planning this event to take place between 2014 to 2016 during the fall.
Fran Rew uploaded a 3-page biliographed introduction to Agnes Riddle called "Educating for a Balanced Life (https://files.meetup.com/1009266/Educating%20for%20a%20Balanced%20Life%20-%20Agnes%20Ludwig%20Riddle.pdf)". The evolution of human values during the historic period of 1865 to 1930 were mirrored in the life of Agnes Riddle through her personal human experience as a woman, a nurse, a farmer, a Grange secretary, a Colorado State Representative, a Colorado State Senator and a Chaplain. When you RSVP to either lead this event and/or partner in the planning process, you will be on the TTWalks mailing list to be invited to play whatever role, big or small, you prefer in the planning process. Please feel free to call or email any questions or comments Fran Rew [masked]).
Our current interested partners are co-founder of Topic-Talk Walks, Fran Rew, and co-founder of the Kinda Collective (http://kindacollective.org/about/), Richard Burgess (http://www.facebook.com/people/Richard-Burgess/1209458915). The headquarters of the Kinda Collective is currently located on the property where Agnes Riddle lived - 4500 Leetsdale.
On August 5, 2011, TTWalks participated in the Kinda Collective's "HERE IS HOW" (https://www.meetup.com/TTWalks/events/26067041/) event. This was one wonderful example of an evolving community participatory artwork coordinated by the Kinda Collective. Both the planning and the event were SO MUCH FUN!!! The Kinda Collective made the hard work of planning and preparation feel so inspiring. The enthusiasm of each of the planning participants made the adventure and discovery in this planning experience feel like a whole lot of fun. I wished it would never end. I wish it could have continued in its own indoor/outdoor space as an ongoing experience throughout the year with thousands of participants taking turns on which day to participate in a year-round HERE IS HOW pavilion.
