BxArts Factory – Getting a Space
In December 2014, a group of Bronx community members launched a new non-profit dedicated to making the arts accessible to residents of The Bronx. Inspired by their unique, but, also, similar experiences with art and creativity, BxArts Factory represent a shared vision to facilitate a vibrant space for artists to create and share their work. Over the past nine months, our programming has included film screenings, panels, poetry presentations, outdoor community engagement and art events and educational and networking activities for artists and residents. And while we managed to do all of this without a space, we’d like to have a permanent location of our own to host you and your neighbors. We are raising money to obtain our space. This year, we plan to expand our programming in big and important ways. We plan to have a series of hands-on skill-developing workshops for local youths and other community members, art exhibitions focused on topics like gentrification, nostalgia and the misplacement of memories in immigrant populations, government surveillance, etc. via film screenings, panel discussions, and outdoor events all free of cost to community members. Our new space will be a place where the community and artists can work together. With a variety of art and culture related events we can have an impactful year in The Bronx. We would love for you to join us in bringing art to every household! Help us reach our goal!
