ACW World Headquarters -699 Lowry Ave NE

Back to Projects and Events

ACW’s Home at Flux Arts Building  at 699 Lowry Ave NE

 

ACW has outgrown our ability to operate  while working out of our homes and studios. We have rented a space from Flux Arts – Josh Blanc, Layl McDill, Potek Glass.  The ACW Board of Directors gave unanimous approval.

Rationale:
Storage:
We start art lessons at Emma Norton in September. We are about to sign a contract with CommonBond Communities for another big social justice art buy.  Our art supplies are spread all over town.  We do not even know what we have and more people are eager to donate supplies.

Professional Space:
We need a professional space to meet partners and hold The Project Management Training , Chowdah Feed, ACW Member Meetings, Events and Classes etc.

ACW Member Counseling Program/ACW Office/ Studio Space: Kelly Frankenberg, Barbara and our Psychotherapist, Sandra Reardon,  who trains our art teachers will pay for more than ½ the rent. This provides an office for Sandra, Studio Space for Kelly, an office for ACW and a healing Room (which Barbara will pay for) and this 40’ x 15’ great room meeting space. We also have a kitchen, a bath and a back porch! We are looking at finding grant funding to help our ACW members attend private and group counseling sessions.

Fiscal Break down. ACW prides itself on transparency.
$1900 a month
ACW pays $800. However,  We have a donor who is willing to contribute the entire ACW rent for a year to help ACW move to this next step.  I am thrilled to announce that ACW member – Mike Vennewitz – is that donor.  Please take a moment to send a few sentence statement to me so I can create a special thank you gift for him.
Barbara $650, Sandra Reardon  $100, Kelly Frankenberg $350

Thank Yous To Mike Vennewitz
