6018North began in response to its richly diverse community. We began with a given people, in a given place.

We asked if art can bring people together while respecting the pre-existing conditions of an old home, in a low-income, diverse neighborhood. We did not seek to change the house nor the people in the neighborhood, but bring people together to connect the uniquely diverse community.

We sought and still seek to bring neighbors and artists together to create new opportunities and new ways of seeing and understanding the world. We propose this as a sustainable model. People living in diversity and with limited access to levers of power understand this. You make do, working with nature, with each other. This is sustainable.
