24 Hour Utopia 

cityweek1_0402.jpg

1 Block 1 Day will attempt to do the impossible: create a hate-free environment for 24 hours that is devoid of crime, gender bias, racial tension, class conflict or any of the systems that separate us—kind of like the inversion of The Purge's 24 hour free-for-all. In downtown Tucson, 100 N. Stone Ave., from 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 4, until 7 a.m. on Sunday, April 5, the event will bring the community together to celebrate and learn about life. Artists, leaders and educations will present on the same stage for a day of sharing aimed at fostering diversity, pride and hope within the community. Some of the highlights are a welcome speech by Mayor Rothschild, multiple dance and music performances, including a samba parade, a stepping exhibition, DJs and drum lines, an attempt to break the record for largest selfie in the world, a fashion show, a drag show, and much more. Wristbands are $7 presale, $10 the day of, and can be bought online at eventbrite.com by searching for 1 Block 1 Day. More info can be found at the event's Facebook page.
