Big Pig Gig returns for World Choir Games
In honor of the World Choir Games, HYPE's C-Change Class 6 and
ArtWorks are giving new life to the Big Pig Gig, launching "The Big
Pig Gig: Do-Re-Wee." Sponsors, artists and schools produced the
pigs for display.
The Chamber and HYPE sponsored one of 50 pigs: "Suspension Pig:
Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber & HYPE - Bridging Generations." The design, by artist Kate Demske
of Solid Ground Studio, was chosen by the Chamber and HYPE, its young professional initiative, to
celebrate all generations and recognize the multi-state
collaboration of this great region. Look for this design, at 150
East Freedom Way area, and all the pigs on display outside each of
the World Choir Games venues this summer.
C-Change is a year-long leadership development program targeted
to the region's emerging leaders. Its curriculum offers both professional development and community
engagement that provides opportunities needed to advance both professionally and personally.
C-Change will kick off a new class in January 2013, which runs
for a full year. All inclusive tuition for meals, snacks, supplies,
curriculum and an overnight retreat is $2,700 ($40 application
Applications will be available July 16, with a submission
deadline of Sept. 21. For additional information, visit
