space for self-expression and skill-building through self-directed time in studio or instructional workshops
art making out in the community
exhibition and sale of artwork
connections to mentorship and apprenticeships in the arts industry
support for education or a career in the arts
jobs for participating youth facilitating workshops and programs
space to explore and express opinions and ideas through art making
a way to regain privacy or to feel some relief from the pressures of street life
a place to play
NOT just for youth who are or want to be artists
a place of welcome!
