Summer meetings every Sunday at noon!

June 23, 2010

If you want to help the Half, come to our meetings, every Sunday at noon. Come to both if you can, if not come to whichever is most convenient for you, we need your help!

Meetings are held at: 734 1/2 East Hyde Park Blvd., Inglewood, 90306.

Come help us with our summer goals:

-Raise $4,000 to move into a new, bigger, and permanent space

-Throw a 3 day music festival in mid-August to raise funds/awareness

-Raise local awareness and address local needs

As soon as we’ve accomplished these steps, we can start offering regular services to the community.

Friday, June 11th, 7pm: Art, Fashion, Music and Food at Hyde Park Half

June 7, 2010

Hyde Park Half is in business!

Current status: We will be holding events in our original location all summer while we work on fundraising and moving into a permanent space to start regular workshops and tutoring.

Our first event of the summer is taking place this Friday, June 11th, at 7pm! Come to Hyde Park Half for food, art, fashion and music. Local designers and artists will be showing their work while acoustic musicians entertain us. Free food will be served. This event is free but donations are welcome. Bring your friends; it’s going to be a great night.

If you want to get involved with the Half and help us choose a potential new permanent space, meet us this Sunday, June 13th, at noon at the following address: Winchell’s 2601 West Manchester Boulevard Inglewood, CA 90305-2433

We usually meet at 734 1/2 Hyde Park Blvd. each Sunday at noon, but at our upcoming meeting we’ll be scouting another neighborhood for a new home. All are welcome.

Food Not Bombs

January 21, 2010


Monday 8 February 2010
4pm Hyde Park Half: 734.5 Hyde Park, Inglewood CA
Free and donations welcome

Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry will talk about his thirty years
of cooking for peace and working to end hunger, poverty and war. Food Not
Bombs shares vegan and vegetarian meal with the hungry in over 1,000 cities
around the globe each week. The 45 minute presentation includes the
history, principles and current actions of the Food Not Bombs movement
around the world, a 15 minute video about Food Not Bombs in Africa, closing
with questions from the audience.  Keith will also provide literature,
books, t-shirts and dvds about Food Not Bombs. Keith has volunteered with
Food Not Bombs for nearly 30 years. He spent two years in jail and faced
life in prison in California for his work with Food Not Bombs. Amnesty
International declared Keith and all Food Not Bombs volunteers “Prisoners
of Conscience” if convicted. He has collected, cook and shared vegan meals
with Food Not Bombs groups in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia
and the Middle East.   This is also a great way to get involved with the
Food Not Bombs group in your community.

One Big Event

January 15, 2010

Hello all.

Hopefully you can make it out to One Big Event tomorrow!  We’ll have Mexican food, art on the walls, some shirts being screenprinted live, a few spoken word performers, comedy, and some acoustic acts!  The night starts at 7pm and goes until 10pm.  Should be a great time to come learn about the space and what we hope to do!  See you there!

Claiming The Space

December 31, 2009

On December 28, a mass of people gathered to begin the beautification process of Hyde Park Half. Everyone is an artist! Creative self-expression is a strong focus of our establishment. What better way to live up to that mission than to open up the walls to be painted by members of the community, artists, activists, and students. We ended with a cornucopia of creations, all of which give the space a distinct identity and culture. Email us if you are interested in painting a mural at a later date.

We are getting closer…

We will be having an array of events coming up with the new year. Check out the Calendar to keep “in the know” with what is going on.

Happy New Year.
