With creative industries involving arts, culture, design and media innovation breaking through the barriers of traditional entrepreneurship, Worcester stands on the cusp of a new, demanding economy – but is it ready to take on the booming demands of co-ops, shared spaces and innovative projects?
Stone Soup, 4 King St., is a nonprofit run by volunteers and activists of the Main South area. Its mission is to “build community and economies based in cooperation and creativity while resisting oppression and gentrification.”
It is no surprise, then, that Stone Soup has added another project to the extensive list of services it offers to the surrounding neighborhoods for little to no cost.
The community center/artist collective launched a GoFundMe campaign to fully outfit a community-based photography center and darkroom for use by local artists, individuals and children enrolled in photography classes and workshops. Stone Soup hopes to host art gallery exhibits for local artists and members after opening.
