About Blackspace

Blackspace is a digital makerspace. We offer Black and Brown youth (Afronauts) a breathing space to manifest their dreams. At Blackspace, we gather community through arts-based WokeShops, African-centered Events & Rituals and by producing Creative Projects. At Blackspace we practice Love, to nurture the Black Whole.

Since 2016, Blackspace has offered teens free programming in: poetry, coding, puppetry, 3D printing, animation, beat making, rap, photography, DJing and consent culture. We've taken your kids to Detroit for the Allied Media Conference, to San Fransisco for Brave New Voices and to DC for the National Museum of African American of History and Culture. Our kids have produced albums, short films and concerts. Become a sustainer and help us build on this foundation!
Goals
$588.88 of $1,000 per month
When we reach our goal of $1,000 per month, our basic needs will be met. For years, adult facilitators have come out of pocket to cover basic expenses, such as food and transportation, at no cost to our students. This will allow us to expand our capacity and provide community programs with ease. Help us reach cruising altitude!
