Throughout 2021, our Hand Over Fist project is sharing testimonies of struggle and survival of means and ends and making ends meet, of protest and perseverance.
Disparate stories, told by city residents and local artists, take shape in new neighborhood-based public artworks. Hand Over Fist highlights mutual aid and civic participation as the foundations upon which communities of care are built.
Check out our work online, at our Manayunk studio, and around the city as we share art and ideas to how to make it better!
In partnership with North Philadelphia's Nicetown-Tioga Improvement Team, COSACOSA is offering a new Communities of Care healing art workshop series. In weekly sessions, participants will explore the restorative power of art in their everyday lives. This family-friendly program welcomes students of all ages living in the neighborhood.
Nicetown-Tioga residents will envision and create original home crafts, while engaging in insightful dialogues via Zoom. Working together in a collaborative learning environment, participants will broaden their support networks and share in a commitment to mutual care during these uncertain times.
We hope you can join us!
