In January 2013, my “Fifth Street Brew Pub Co-op” video launched the “ReInvention Stories” series on the radio and internet through NPR affiliate station WYSO 91.3FM based out of Yellow Springs, Ohio. “ReInvention Stories” was a Localore transmedia incubator team under AIR (The Association of Independent Radio). The entire Localore Project was watched closely across the nation as these incubator teams developed new forms of public media. Our team canvassed neighborhoods throughout the city to find out how people have reinvented themselves in light or economic or personal changes. “ReInvention Stories” was chosen for Sundance’s lucrative Sun Media Lab in the Fall of 2012. I chose to tell the story of The Fifth Street Brew Pub Co-op, Ohio’s first brew pub co-op, because this group is onto something: they are revitalizing the neighborhood by renovating a historic building and stimulating the community socially and economically by turning the building into a member-shared brew pub and dining establishment.
