The Rapidian

Grab your sunglasses for summer public hours!

Who can resist good weather in West Michigan? We can't, either. For the rest of the summer, The Rapidian is taking our public hours public! Each week, we'll move to a different quadrant of the city, hanging out at parks, libraries, public spaces and local businesses.

Visit with us around town - we want to know what you care about most in your neighborhood, what communities you're a part of. We'll have a wireless enabled laptop and equipment for you to play with. We'll be updating this page regularly with our locations for each week, so keep checking back!
