Hundreds of people from around the city enjoyed great art, music, food and conversations at InSpero's Steel City Makers 5 Man Show held October 23.
For Gina and Nancy, it was a dream realized as it combined in one event our vision for InSpero: nurturing and cultivating the creative community, providing collaborative events for artists to create together and give good gifts to Birmingham, starting conversations for the common good, and celebrating our creative community and our city.
We want to show you a few images from this magical night and thank a few of the amazing people and sponsors of this event.

It was at Rivendell the hobbits think through the vocation they have been given, carefully working out the who and what and where of the odyssey that will be theirs. But integral to all that they were, and to all that they would need to be, was the table at Rivendell, a place for the best conversations and the best food and the best drink — simply said, a wonder of wonders."

The never-ending hope of Easter, Writer Andrew Shaughnessy shares reflections on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and why hope and beauty matter. "We hope because we know a day is coming when, to paraphrase Sam in The Lord of the Rings, “everything sad will come untrue,” when our Creator King will dry every tear and bind up the broken hearts and restore the sundered cities and turn the world upside down."
