Every SPACES project is a journey of discovery and connection.
They have created efforts varied as a pop-up restaurant in a park to a co-op led by women in re-entry. And each one ignites moments of magic, inspiration and connection in our neighborhood.
We begin with gifts in our neighborhood: community members’ passion and skill in making films, music, food; our visions for transforming spaces; our experience in artwork and community building.
We begin with needs identified by community members: education, access to technology, civic engagement, re-entry services.
Then we invite artists with expertise in mentorship and relevant crafts and technologies to come build with us.
Each of our 6 artist-in-residence projects has been as creative and complex as our neighborhood. We hope you enjoy their stories.
