What I’ve Been Told Lately…

What I’ve been told lately is that people have found themselves attracted to URBhana, like a lighthouse on the stormy construction site of Gay St. Most people have shared that the name URBhana came to them via either email, word of mouth, or ESP. One particular story I’d like to share is this: during one First Friday event, an agoraphobic woman found herself at the end of the sidewalk of Gay St. and really did not know which way to go or what to do. All of a sudden she looked up and saw some people in front of the door of URBhana and said to her boyfriend, “I need to go there.” She entered into URBhana on that First Friday, and on that particular evening we had a theater group and oil paintings and portraits. The air conditioning wasn’t working so well, and it was hot and crowded. Something shifted inside of her (call it URBhana’s energy 🙂 ) and she found herself opening up and talking to Angie Collins, the creater/founder of the Awakened Woman Workshops, and myself, Angela Howard, founder of URBhana. She lit up so much that we asked her to be a presenter at the next Awakened Woman Workshop. On that Saturday, we witnessed a most vibrant, wide-open, confident, creative writing and play-wright master (she just received her Masters degree from UT) sharing poetry from her play “Exposed” and singing at the top of her lungs to the tune of “Fat Bottom Girls.”

If there is anyone else out there with an URBhana story, please share it because it is fascinating what URBhana has already started to create in downtown Knoxville.
