CoLAB is BBF’s second annual AMAZING summer fundraising event. It all comes together on June 15, 2013, from 7:00-11:00pm at High Concept Laboratories (1401 West Wabansia). CoLAB is designed to showcase the eight areas in which BBF programs: Organic Urban Gardening (AgLAB); Visual and Plastic Arts (ArtLAB); Digital Music Production (BeatLAB); Bicycle Design, Repair & Ridership (BikeLAB); Film, Video & New Media (FilmLAB); Knitting & Textile Design (KnitLAB); Poetry (LitLAB); and Tap Dancing (TapLAB).

Youth participants and their instructors will be on hand to demonstrate their talents, engage guests in interactive activities, display their various lab wares, and talk to an anticipated 250 guests about how BBF’s programs operate and the benefits they provide to them and the greater North Lawndale community. Guests will explore the different lab displays, enjoy lab-based performances by BBF youth and other guest performers, eat, drink, dance, and be very, very merry.
