TAG, You’re It!
Tunes, Art and Games at the Tim Faulkner Gallery
Louisville, Ky. – Mattingly Edge, a nonprofit working to empower citizens with disabilities, is hosting a unique, adult-centered night of tunes, art, and games.
This one-of-a-kind event will include a live music performance by local synth-pop band The Pass, Karaoke Roulette by Howell Dawdy, games such as Giant Jenga, Cornhole, and Kubb, a silent auction, a cash bar, food by Yafa Cafe, and urban artists Casey McKinney and Jacob Duncan demonstrating their craft live while inviting attendees to take part and “tag” their own communal work of art.
Mattingly Edge takes an original approach to how society partners with adults who have developmental and intellectual disabilities. They believe that every person has something positive to contribute, and those they partner with in their programs are given the tools and support everyone needs to grow his or her own talents and skills and, ultimately, become part of our communities rather than being set apart.
This November Louisville and southern Indiana residents can take part in the mission by simply joining in on a night of fun and games. Tunes, Art, and Games (TAG) is a benefit party for Mattingly Edge. It will take place on Saturday, November 11 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Tim Faulkner Gallery, located at 1512 Portland Avenue, 40203. Advance tickets are just $15 and can be purchased at https://www.mattinglyedge.org/event/tag/ or you can get tickets at the door for $30. This is a 21 and over event.
Group living and group programs keep people on the outside of community and overly dependent on others to determine the direction of their lives. At Mattingly Edge, we’re proud to say “no” to isolation and “yes” to “the good things in life”. Our mission is to partner with citizens with disabilities to experience what many of us take for granted including but not limited to meaningful relationships with family and friends, good jobs with growth potential, a home of their own, control over their own lives, and a chance to make a positive difference in the world.
