BRIDGING THE DIVIDE
A YOUTH + COMMUNITY CULTURAL ARTS CENTER
This project bridges the physical divide of a highway and the social and economic divide between two neighborhoods in Minneapolis by creating a common space out of a no-man’s land - an urban centre in a void. The program for this project revolved around creating a place for communication, education and understanding for school children through an after school arts club with spaces for dance, martial arts, creating visual arts, music rooms and a radio studio. The arts programs at the centre have a focus on multi-culturalism to foster connections and understanding between people in the city and around the world.
