Talking Walls is a different kind of art studio, an interactive SPRAYground that allows – no, encourages – you to leave your mark. Talking Walls seeks to preserve the history and culture of street art by providing participants with wall-to-wall space and a unique opportunity to engage in skills and techniques of the urban art form. Talking Walls has taken our studio on the road to a number of art festivals to showcase world-renowned artists. Our artists represent a diverse range of voices that bring the color, unearth history and cultivate community. We believe art is a universal language that unites humanity like nothing else.
The mission of La Cocina is to cultivate low-income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their businesses. We support businesses by providing an affordable commercial kitchen space, industry-specific technical assistance, and access to market opportunities. We focus primarily on providing resources to women from communities of color and immigrant communities. Our vision is that entrepreneurs gain financial security by doing what they love to do, creating an innovative, vibrant, and inclusive economic landscape.
