Engagement

The SPACES Creative Engagement Campaign complements our exhibitions with dozens of events each year, inspired by our featured artists and their work displayed in the SPACES galleries.

EMPOWERING YOUTH THROUGH ART

We work with schools, universities, and organizations with youth programming to connect groups to SPACES for age-appropriate activities:

  • Through Create it Forward, we introduce students in the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Detention to professional artists, who teach them art-making skills. The students, in turn, give their art projects to low-income hospice care patients at Malachi House.

  • Write, Rinse, Repeat is an annual project that encourages the use of art to make statements of empowerment for groups like Bellefaire JCB’s Social Advocates for Youth.

  • School aged kids tell us what they really think about the exhibitions at SPACES in Kid Art Reviews.

"Thank you for coming and sharing your artistic lesson with us, it was greatly appreciated. We really needed something fun to do in such a negative environment"

SPACES IN THE COMMUNITY

We offer arts programming at 6 key sites throughout the greater Cleveland area, to make art and our mission more accessible, including:

SUPPORTING ARTISTS 

SPACES brings experimental art directly to community members who either can’t easily get to us or who prefer to experience art outside of the gallery setting:

  • Hingetown Culture Works is a platform for the co-creation, coordination, and implementation of cultural activities that serve the diverse populations living in and visiting this area of the Ohio City neighborhood in Cleveland.
