About

Blackspace is a digital makerspace where Black and Brown youth create the future. Through art-and-technology based WokeShops, community events, and digital media projects, Blackspace offers youth a breathing space to manifest their dreams.

HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF 80 SUSTAINERS IN FEBRUARY!

Happy Black Futures Month! Blackspace is setting a goal of reaching 80 monthly sustainers by the end of February. Will you join us?

Blackspace has provided a revolutionary breathing space for HUNDREDS of local youth. We have 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. And guess what? We want to do MORE! Supporting Black spaces takes more than likes and follows. It takes funds. This is not a donation. It is an investment in the future of Durham's Black creative community. Become a sustainer today!
Goals
$556 of $2,500 per month
When we reach $2,500 per month, our basic needs are met. The majority of our current programs are held after school. We would be able to provide food and transportation at no cost to our students, which will expand our capacity to provide programming to some of our more vulnerable youth. Here, we are at a cruising altitude in our galaxy.
