Baltimore Happiness Club
The Baltimore Happiness Club (BHC), a drop-in support group for anyone who wishes to increase their level of happiness, has been meeting weekly for 1.5 years.
BHC is based on Gateway to Happiness, by Rabbi Zelig Pliskin, and on the premise that happiness is a skill that can be learned. Whereas some people are “born happy,” most of us are not always naturally happy, but we can learn to be.
BHC is an interactive, lively group that uses Rabbi Pliskin and other happiness teachers as sources. Through simple exercises, discussion, and sharing real-life situations, we learn to increase and improve our happiness skills and equip ourselves to be more resilient and, through taking charge of our happiness, to take charge of our lives.

Seeing Music in Medieval Manuscripts

Medieval painters often filled their manuscripts with scenes of everyday life that included charming illuminations of people and animals playing musical instruments and dancing. Many of these images, however, functioned as sophisticated symbols that conveyed a complex understanding of man’s relationship with the order of the universe. Musical harmony and dissonance were thought to mirror the perfection of heaven as well as the disorder of evil. This exhibition, composed of approximately twenty manuscripts and objects, will explore music in its relationship with philosophy, religion, and the arts during the Middle Ages.

The Roland Park Co. Conversations Series With Ann Giroux; Excluded from Parade: Discriminatory Housing Policies in The Roland Park Company’s Suburban Developments

For the second installment of The Roland Park Conversations Series, Ann G. Giroux, will present “Excluded from Paradise: Discriminatory Housing Policies in The Roland Park Company’s Suburban Developments.” Ms. Giroux will discuss how the ambitions and ideologies of those involved in developing The Roland Park Company District resulted in discriminatory housing practices. These practices functionally excluded most Baltimore City residents from this shining “new Baltimore.” The talk and accompanying slideshow will illustrate the real life consequences for those excluded from the company’s developments.

This event is made possible through the generous sponsorship of BNI-Maryland. BNI was incorporated in 1959, as Baltimore Neighborhoods, Inc., by James Rouse, Mel Sykes, Ellsworth Rosen, and Sidney Hollander, Jr. to encourage integrated neighborhood housing in Baltimore City. Following The Fair Housing Act of 1968, BNI worked to enforce equitable housing laws. Today BNI, celebrates its 55th year, and continues to promote justice in housing throughout the State of Maryland, by educating and enforcing laws pertaining to fair housing and assisting both tenants and landlords on housing law, and helping to negotiate tenant-landlord conflicts.

 

Ann Giroux is a member of the Board of Friends of Maryland’s Olmsted Parks and Landscapes. Formerly an architectural and historical consultant for residential and commercial historic projects in the State of Maryland, she now spends her time researching, writing and lecturing on The Roland Park Company District. Ms. Giroux is hard at work on a catalogue of The Roland Park Company developments.

Light refreshments will be served. This event is free, but space is limited. Advance registration is required.

Reserve your place with Ann Giroux at ann@anngiroux.com or (443) 939-4023 by providing name, phone number and street address.
