Artist Residencies and Collectives
Nafasi on Centre Artist Residency
Nafasi on Centre is a community development initiative utilizing art as the vehicle and is a partnership between the Hill CDC and #ArtsinHD, an action planning group, and a subcommittee of the Hill District Consensus Group. More specifically, Nafasi, which means “space” and "opportunity" in Swahili, is the first substantial project to emerge from the Hill District Arts Plan and is a cultural strategy to meet the 5 goals of the Greater Hill District's Master Plan, which aims to: (1) Build Upon the African American Cultural Legacy, (2) Family Friendly Housing Development Without Displacement, (3) Economic Empowerment & Community Development, (4) Make the Hill a Green and Well-Designed Community, and (5) Mobility, Transportation, and Parking.
Nafasi on Centre will consist of artist work-space in the basement, a cafe/gallery on the first floor, and four 1-bedroom apartments and two micro lofts, spread across the second and third floors. The residency and space at Nafasi on Centre will be programmed and overseen by the Hill CDC, in partnership with #ArtsinHD.

Through curating diverse showcases and events, we create a platform for any artist regardless of gender, race, culture, age, sexual orientation, and abilities to further their career, gain exposure, build opportunities, and connect with the community. We prioritize accountability and actively work to cultivate an organizational culture that is both safe and inclusive for all. The safety of our members and visitors is always of utmost importance, and racism, sexism, transphobia, and harassment are never tolerated here. Inclusivity is and will always be illustrated through our collective, as we condemn all forms of hate in both our day-to-day operations and our events.
