ABOUT

Space Is The Place

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 digital and arts-based WokeShops, African-centered events & rituals and by producing creative storytelling projects. At Blackspace, we nurture the Black Whole.

Since 2014, Blackspace has offered teens free programming rooted in Afrofuturism, including poetrycodingpuppetry, 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 History and Culture. Your kids have produced albums, short films and concerts. Become a sustainer and help us build on this foundation!
