The Creative Class Is Moving To Bloomington, Indiana This Summer

Two years ago, we told you that the creative class was bailing out of the big cities and setting up shop in Moscow, Idaho. It went pretty well! This year, Summer Commune is organizing to take place in…. Bloomington, Indiana, for the month of July:

Home to Lil' Bub the cat, record labels JAGJAGUWAR and Secretly Canadian, the famed Kinsey Institute, and John Cougar Mellencamp, Bloomington, Indiana feels hidden away although it's pretty centrally located. It's far enough from the city to feel like farm country, but close enough to a major airport to make getting there super easy.

Intrigued? You can find out more here. "It’s like a utopian social experiment or a summer camp with more potlucks and no curfew," say the organizers, Joshua Heller and Nicole Kelly.

Maaaany years ago, YT spent a few weeks at the IU High School Journalism Institute during mid-summer. There were nights arguing the utility of Ramparts with the RA in the (unfortunately not air conditioned) Read Hall, pizza runs to Noble Romans, silent films at the Music School, and midnight beers on the residence hall roof. I fell for someone across the seminar table (in the Read Hall cafeteria) from Ft. Wayne. Walks in the woods at dusk; fireworks shows apropos of nothing.

A lot of steamy, bucolic, mosquito-bitten memories of all that. I'd go.
