Here’s where to link up with the Red Bull Amaphiko Academy this week

The social entrepreneurship academy is in Baltimore for its first U.S. edition. Public events include a storytelling night, roller skating jam and a big festival to close it out.

The stage is set at Eubie Blake Cultural Center.

The Red Bull Amaphiko Academy spread its wings in Baltimore over the weekend, with social innovators from around the country setting up at the Eubie Blake Cultural Center. The weeklong event is looking to showcase Baltimore’s creators and innovators. Along with six of the 14 academy participants being from Baltimore, there are public-facing events throughout the week that shine a light on the community.

Here’s a look at the schedule:

  • Red Bull Amaphiko Academy Open House and Gallery Show On Aug. 14, get a look inside the Eubie Blake Cultural Center, where Amaphiko worked with Baltimore artists and makers to transform the space into home base for the Academy. The Monday event features a Made in Baltimore pop-up shop. Art exhibits including “What We Learn While Waiting” by Malaika Clements, Shan Wallace, and LieAnne Navarro and “Notes in Time,” showcasing the work of photographers I.
