Nestled between the Adair Park, Capitol View, and Oakland City neighborhoods, The Bakery is a multi-faceted arts complex that focuses on community engagement, the environment, education, and new technologies. The Bakery offers thousands of square feet for programming that is geared towards DIY and up-and-coming artists and entrepreneurs that need room to expand their ideas and bring them to life! Since opening, The Bakery has become an organism of its own due to the hard work put in by a team of volunteers, once strangers now family, who came together under a common interest of creating a community-driven art space.

At The Bakery, we uphold the ethics of DIY, championing people over profit and encouraging open-mindedness, safety, and self-sufficiency. This means maintaining a careful balance of hosting curated, mission-aligned events while also supporting programming we believe is meaningful find its way into existence. People have praised the fact that they feel safe, supported, and empowered by The Bakery. As a platform, we provide the space and resources for up-and-coming artists, musicians, performers, designers, and entrepreneurs to expand their ideas and bring them to life.

We're not a non-profit, but we function like one. Any and all donations are very much appreciated! You can also find us on Venmo and CashApp for one-time donations! If you need documentation for a tax write-off, we can find a way to get that for you!

Projects We've Got Going On
~ Dark Matter Studios - A small group of passionate photographers are looking to start a community darkroom here at The Bakery. They are in need of capital investors and donations to get this project off the ground.Want to help make Dark Matter Studios a reality? Got any equipment you’d like to offload? Or some extra cash you’d like to earmark for a good cause and fun project?

~ Art Classroom & Artist Free Store -  Artists need tools and resources, like paint and power supplies, to successfully build or run their projects. We love artists here at The Bakery, so we want to do what we can to help them thrive. That means we will be offering space for the community to donate excess/unwanted supplies that other artists can pick up for FREE! Things that we'll be collecting include, but are not limited to, paint, pens, paper, canvas, wood, welding equipment, LEDs / lighting equipment, and much more!

~ Community Garden -  Did you know we have a garden? With the help of our volunteers, we currently have several beds nourishing sunflowers, okra, tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, arugula, carrots, basil, mint,lamb’s quarters, strawberries, kale, turnips, and more! We still need volunteers to help us build more beds, plant trees, and create an irrigation system. Also, know anything about bees? We want them!

~ Unicorn Gardens Cinema - Unicorn Gardens Cinema is an art-house cinema showcasing the best of contemporary underground film from all corners of the world, with an emphasis on supporting emerging Atlanta filmmakers. 

~ DIY Print Shop - We love screen printing and think you should too! That’s why we’re building out a print shop, so you can come in with nothing and leave with something. Looking to learn how to make screen prints? Need band merch? How about your political posters? We got you!

~ Bubble Palace - Prompted by the gifting of a large geodesic dome, we have plans to turn it into an experimental performance and technology lab that supports projection mapping, interactive performance, and installation projects. The dome will house equipment and software for its users to utilize, allowing the user to simply bring in their data files and plug and play. The goal is to create a space for artists that provides them with opportunities to experiment with technologies that are generally cost-prohibitive and inaccessible.

The Essentials
It takes a lot to cover the costs of Bakie’s home. We have rent, electricity, water, internet, garbage… With your help, we can keep the lights on and water running! And, it would be great to compensate Bakie's fans for their time, skills, and effort!
