The Art House
In 2016, the era of community artivism became mainstream with 219 E. Hanover. The original arthouse and communal garden of our time, it changed what was possible forever. 219 was a multiple floored building with an art exhibit on the first floor, a photography and recording studio on the second and a Gandhi Garden on the side. The Sage coalition actualized the artivist vision, here in the town. From fresh fruits and vegetables growing in the garden, to community bonfires, they understood what it meant to provide access to the community while also collectively building artistic visions. This is the example of what Tha Art House model will be.
To cultivate access to resources and community building through artistic outlets.
We believe that
Art is a healing agent
Art can serve as an agent of change
Art should be accessible to all
Collectivism is the center of community building
