About Side Street Projects: 

Side Street Projects is an entirely mobile artist run organization. Our mission is to give artists of all ages the ability and means to support their creative endeavors. All of our programs connect professional artists directly to communities. 

We teach children design and fabrication through a mobile tool-based program “The Woodworking Bus”. We present community based Socially Engaged Artist Projects at our temporary headquarters; and off-site in collaboration with local businesses and government agencies. These projects are integrated into the free community programming offered every Saturday. We provide support services to artists with programs including a Best-Professional Practices Podcast Series, Skill Share Workshops, and an Equipment Co-Op. 


Office Culture: 

Side Street Projects is run by a strong community of artists who are committed to rolling up our sleeves and supporting the mission of the organization, which includes supporting each other. We are casual but efficient, and committed to social justice. Everything that we do encourages creative problem solving and self-reliance within a contemporary art context, which is reflected in our unusual operating model. Our offices are restored vintage trailers, our communication systems are 100% wireless, and it all runs on a mobile solar energy array. It is a little like camping here. We have a port-o-potty, and only one of the trailers is climate controlled. Staff has access to our equipment co-op including our wood shop. Artists are encouraged to use our resources to further their own art practice. 

Hours can potentially be supplemented with teaching in our youth education program.
