Thanks to everyone who stopped by on Saturday to check out the Neighborhood Crawl + Youth Arts Workshop Showcase! It was also exciting to unveil Shared Spaces, a pilot project of cooperative spaces that will provide low- or no-cost access to residency, rehearsal, or meeting space for Callowhill/Chinatown North based cultural groups. Shared Spaces emerged as a community priority from the People:Power:Place cultural planning process. Rentable spaces in the pilot program include: Asian Arts Initiative, Studio C, G, Theater, & 3rd floor; Folk Arts Cultural Treasures Charter School, 1st floor; Phield House; and Arts & Craft Holdings, 448 N. 10th Street, 2nd floor.
