From the fascinating New Urbanism video series: "Imagine a graffiti-ridden deserted place suddenly turned into hub of music! Raumlabor Berlin transforms the Eichbaum subway station into an opera house."
My wife saw this and had a great idea: Why not do something similar with literary readings? If anyone replicates or adapts this idea, please do shoot me an email at jeremy(at)shareable.net. Want to volunteer to organize something like this in the San Francisco Bay Area? We'll sponsor you!
