It’s no secret that there has been a long standing rivalry between St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri’s two largest cities which flank the state on its east and west borders, respectively. Inspired by the 1985 MLB World Series, known as the “I-70 Series”, in which the Cardinals and Royals faced each other in the championship, this collaborative event aims to educate and activate the creative communities that reside along this central corridor by creating a cultural exchange between the two cities.*
In the first of this series, Bread! KC revisits the historical 1985 exposition, only this time at BANK Projects (3420 Iowa Ave, St. Louis) with a free event on Saturday, August 10, 2013. From 4:00 – 9:00 pm, Bread! KC, in collaboration with numerous artists and organizations from both east and west, will engage in a variety of activities, competitive games, debates, and conversations focused on the similarities and disparities between these two great cities with the intent to strengthen the bonds between our communities. A potluck dinner will take place on-site at 7:00 pm. All attendees are encouraged to wear clothing that reflects their favorite local icons (sports teams, bands, breweries, etc.), as well as bring a dish which they feel is reflective of their region.
*For the record, the Royals won
