Forget your tired old new year's resolution. Do this stuff instead.

Coming up: a new post about how racial, ethnic, and class segregation impacts Baltimore's emerging arts scene; and a profile of one of my local heroes, Power Inside director Jacqueline Robarge.

First, though, here's a list of some cool stuff going on around town this month.

  • Amplify Baltimore, a symposium on who we are and where we're going, with a focus on "political literacy and public safety." The roster of speakers is pretty impressive. (Jan 8)
  • Isabel Wilkerson: Race and the Great Migration, a discussion about the ongoing ramifications of the African-American diaspora from the rural South to the urban North. (Jan 12)
  • OSI-Baltimore Seeks Applicants for 2011 Community Fellowships - the orginal celebration of unsung Baltimore, if you will. (Deadline: March 21)
  • Glassworks, a presentation of the music of Philip Glass by Mobtown Modern and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. (Jan 12)
  • Create Baltimore: A Gathering of People Building Creative Community in Baltimore. There's a waiting list for tickets, but it's still worth signing up. (Jan 15)
  • Baker Artist Awards: there's only eight days left to nominate yourself, so get cracking. Also? Download youself some Baker iPhone app. (Deadline: Jan 15)

There is just too much awesomeness happening to miss out on it. Which reminds me, I need to finish my Baker nomination.
