Transition OKC, SixTwelve and DeadCenter Film Festival invite you to
 Growing Community, a Film, Food and Fun series on the SixTwelve lawn in Oklahoma City's refreshingly creative Paseo Arts District. 

This is the first of what we hope will become a regular ongoing series of potluck dinners and engaging films focused on inspiring dialogue and action for growing community resilience, sustainability, health and wellness. The evening's festivities include: 
  • A Zero Waste potluck picnic 
  • Tabling event for community organizations inside SixTwelve's beautifully renovated building 
  • Screening of Course of Food, a 17-minute film that won Best Oklahoma Short Film at the 2015 DeadCenter Film Festival 
  • Screening of Growing Cities, a powerful award-winning documentary that examines the inspiring role of urban farming in America and its potential to revitalize our cities and the way we eat 
  • Meet up with old friends
  • Make new friends 
  • Favorite covered dish 
  • Favorite beverage 
  • Reusable plates, eating utensils, cups or glasses 
  • Camp chairs, blankets, quilts for picnicking on the lawn
While this event is free, we're asking for donations to help us cover the costs of this event and provide seed funds for future similar events. Suggested donation is $5 per person.
