Know Your Neighbors: "VOX Beer Summit"

Vox Culture will be opening the new year with a special event to introduce it’s focus on tackling the topic of racial equality in Houston. As part of its participation in the HOU21 Initiative, Vox Culture will be hosting a VOX Beer Summit at Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company the evening of Friday, January 20th. The event will be the formal opening for the organization’s 2017 theme, ‘Know Your Neighbors’.

The goal of the series is to allow for the Houston community to engage and build awareness on the subject of racial inequalities and challenges that may be observed (and exist) in Houston. Among the final aims of the year for Vox Culture are the promotion of a healthy and positive ambience, which encourages realistic and creative discussions and action items, that can be used as pillars towards building a more equal and united community.

This event will specifically provide a chance for creative expression of this discussion via spoken word poetry. It will also provide a chance to listen to brand new proposals and initiatives by the City of Houston’s Housing and Community Development Department that can help begin to tackle parts of the subject of racial inequality.

The VOX Beer Summit will feature a brief presentation from the City of Houston’s Neighborhoods and Community Development Department. The event will also feature performances from several spoken word poets from Write About Now. A happy hour selection from Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co. will also be available for guests wanting to purchase beer.

Food and drinks can be purchased at Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co. Seats are free but limited. Please select and print your ticket to reserve your spot at this Eventbrite link:



The event will take place at the Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company (5301 Nolda Street, Houston, TX 77007) on Friday, January 20th from 6:30PM to 8:30PM. The latest updates can be found by visiting the Vox Culture page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/voxculturehouston.
