First thank you for reading! Creators of The Hood has taken many roads and sacrifices to be here today, sharing this journey with you is special.
Early 2018 when COTH was being thought of, Creators of The Hood (then called Hood Creators or The SR League) was a planned month long program for 10 artists to create 1 piece each for a group show in 10 weeks. This project was an extension of street refugee events meant to engage and connect communities face to face.
Being around and meeting artists in your community can create a relating dialogue of the absence of creative spaces in the hoods (of NYC & many others). This opened the conversation and possibility of serving artists & creatives in many new ways.
We represent creators who grew up in the hood, a highly creative environment with very very few creative resources.
This is a movement for creatives to be seen.
