All Day    M.U.S.C.R.A.T. 
SCATV is teaming up with the Somerville Arts Council to gather stories about Davis Square, then and now. What did this community used to be like? How does that compare with today, and what do you see in the future? These stories will be collected outside the M.U.S.C.R.A.T. Storytelling Bus. Come on in, take a seat and hear what your neighbors have to say! There will be free popcorn!

All Day    Loop Around! Knitting on Traffic Island
Davis Square’s traffic island will be transformed by loops of yarn with a community knit-in. Knitters and crocheters alike are invited to join the Nave Gallery in producing pieces for a fall installation that will take place in one of Somerville’s parks. The installation, part of the gallery’s Wrap Around Project which supports and promotes the work of the Somerville Homeless Coalition. Knitters and crocheters will add to the installation by creating pieces that will be included. There will be lots of yarn on hand, so bring your needles and hooks and join us for a yarnstorm.
