    The Culture Factory

    The Culture Factory connects two disjointed neighborhoods in the South Bronx through an open campus of youth-centered programs. In a socially complex neighborhood with distressed economic factors and troubling youth education statistics, the campus provides a public corridor to bring together a network of youth organizations. The campus negotiates unusual site conditions and daunting social needs to serve as a beacon of opportunity and growth to empower underserved youth through the platforms of art + technology. The program will foster individual creativity and interests to be a long-lasting catalyst for social change, empowering youth with the resources and skills to further create a meaningful change in our world.
