There are two events in the Morningside Heights area we thought were interesting:
- A Medieval Arts Workshop at St. John the Divine. Now, the program is for kids 4-11, but getting to "carve a block of limestone, create medieval illuminated letters, design gargoyles, weave, make stained glass collages, and more!" sound pretty awesome to us and anyone interested enough in going should call St. John the Divine and find out if they can go. There is a walk (for adults) at 12:45PM about the differing kinds of architecture at the catherdral which sounds good, too.
- Impact 2004 is having a non-partisan traning session to educate people how to protect voting rights in key states for the November 2 Presidential election:

Participants will receive an update on efforts to prevent minority disenfranchisement and intimidation at the polls, challenges posed by computer voting systems and an overview of the states where voting rights are at greatest risk. After the one-hour program, training sessions will be led by top civil rights groups. Specialized training will be provided for lawyers and law students interested in serving a poll monitor or hotline volunteers in key battleground states.

The session runs 2-5PM at the Columbia Law School (Amsterdam & West 115th - just a few blocks north of St. John the Divine).

You can find more events from Gothamist Arts & Events as well as Gothamist Food.
