Fundred Reserve Open Lab

Fundred Reserve Open Lab at H-Space, located in DC’s Shaw/U Street neighborhood, is a space to expand the Fundred program by continuing to amplify personal stories, having fact based dialogue about problems in DC, and engaging more people to take purposeful action. 

Open Lab continues the presence after the 2017 Fundred Reserve exhibition at The Corcoran.  Open Lab programming runs from October through April 2018, with space provided by Hamiltonian Artists, and support from The Kresge Foundation through our partnership with MIT CoLab.

More about Fundred Reserve Open Lab:

During its six-month run, The Fundred Reserve Open Lab at H-Space will host a variety of activities and youth led initiatives for research, communications, and action designed to build relationships among a wide variety of stakeholders. 

We recognize everyone’s capacity to create art and social change. The space will serve as a hub for collaborative engagement, working towards solutions to childhood lead poisoning, through youth led activism workshops, partnerships with local universities and high schools, creation of zines, social media campaigns, art exhibitions and a regular community conversation series with invited speakers from multiple sectors. We have an open call to the community to also contribute to programming.

H-Space is provided by Hamiltonian Artists. All programs are funded by The Kresge Foundation as part of a multi-year grant in partnership with MIT CoLab.
