ABOUT THE TEAM
THE VILLAGE! is a community-oriented studio space founded by Baltimore Based artist-partner-collaborator duo, Kehinde Applewhite and VILLAGER, in January 2023. The idea of the space came to life after hosting numerous open studios and we both realized that our space had continuously and seamlessly transformed into a place where folks can come and be themselves, vulnerably share their art and their being with others while feeling safe and cared for by others alike.
We had fostered a community of our own!
The present and future of THE VILLAGE! is rooted in community- continuously holding space for folks to come share and contribute to the community through open mics, community conversations and dialogues, movie nights and discussions, artist talks, workshops, and culinary experiences. It is our mission to be a safe haven, to hold and offer space, provide, nurture love, and care for those in our community as we grow, learn, and love with one another.
After all, it takes a VILLAGE!
THE VILLAGE! is located in Baltimore, MD, and serves as the live-work space for both artists.
