MISSION STATEMENT

Power House Productions (PHP) is an artist-run neighborhood-based nonprofit organization.  Incorporated in December of 2009, our mission is to develop and implement creative neighborhood stabilization strategies to revitalize and inspire the community.

Our programs incorporate a broad array of activities ranging from marketing vacant properties to creating public art installations.  Strategies include integrating artist live-work spaces within the existing cultural resources of the community and inviting artists to visit for extended periods to research and propose projects.  In just a short few years, PHP has brought 23 artists and designers into the community to work, learn and observe, and facilitated the purchase of 28 properties to residents, both new and old.

It is our belief that through the skills and talent of artists and designers and their long term work in the community, a new kind of neighborhood will emerge.  One that is creatively and actively enjoyable, safe and sustainable for all.




GOALS

Create a cultural shift in the neighborhood by implementing stabilization strategies with art and creativity at the core.

The long term gain of establishing active artistic practices into a neighborhood is a sustainable, self-reliant, inspired community with creative solutions and approaches to common community concerns.

Artists offer alternative viewpoints to these otherwise daunting everyday issues that effect all residents.

Address quality of life issues city-wide.

Integrating artist-led approaches within the existing cultural resources of a neighborhood.
