Safe(r) Space Policy:
Marrow is committed to creating an environment that interrupts racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, ableism, adultism, fat phobia and other systems of oppression and marginalization.
We expect those who interact with us in our space to work with us to maintain a culture of actively checking ourselves and being conscious of privilege, so that everyone may feel as safe as possible to exist and express themselves.
- Marrow is located on the 1st floor with no stairs leading into our space. Our doorway is 31.5" wide when taking the door itself into consideration. The doorway has a small (~2.5") lip - which we're working to resolve - and may be tricky for folks who use a chair. If you'd rather use our second entrance (which has a small concrete incline to gap a similar lip), please let a staff member know!
- We have two single-stall, gender neutral restrooms. One is small, and one is larger with a grab bar (the larger one is marked as accessible).
- Allergy-friendly: we are a nut-free and scent-free space.
- We are a drug and alcohol free space (including cigarettes), both indoors and outdoors within 10' of all entrances, the parking lot, and our shared outdoor space.
If you have any accessibility, sensitivity, or allergy concerns or requests please feel free to reach out to us before coming by!
What's in Our Space:
The focus of Marrow's Incubation Space is on building a community with a collective mission of collaboration, increased equity, and mutual aid.
The Incubation Space is currently occupied by The School of Urban Liberation - a project focused on working with teens (particularly those who have dropped out or are at risk of dropping out of high school) desiring vocations in music, film, photography and journalism to engage in meaningful leadership training in the context of community organizing, utilizing media and entertainment as avenues for self-expression and emotional self-management.
The School of Urban Liberation is led by local hip hop musician and producer Solomon Starr.
Marrow's storefront features the work of local artists, musicians, and makers of all mediums and genres. With the goal of centering young creators who may have difficulty finding a platform to sell their work elsewhere - makers 24 years old and under get 100% of proceeds from their sales. Established and older artist split their sales with Marrow, with at least 50% of their proceeds supporting our younger makers.
We love having events at Marrow, from art exhibitions to open mics to shows - particularly when they're youth organized and produced. If you want to put something together, get in touch with us!
Aside from our scheduled workshops, classes, and events, we have time when young folks can come in and just use Marrow's resources - whether you need to study, collaborate with friends, relax and play some video games, or just exist somewhere that isn't home - we welcome you!
