I love places. I love buildings and rooms. I love what they do to human interaction. I love how a space is made can affect what happens inside its walls and what kind of relationships are developed there.
I love unexpected cross overs in places. The barn used for weddings. The bar used for salsa dancing. The old house used as art studios.
Or the storefront cover for drug deals turned into a cultural hub.
Calvary Church is taking the old Dragon Chaser store space and turning it into something unexpected. It will be a place of apparently contradictory things existing together: town and gown, arts and worship, community and leaders, event space and creative space, an art gallery and a dance floor.
It's called the CommonPlace. 115 S Fraser Street.
It is a lot of things. And it's beautiful. An exposed brick wall. Track lighting. Wood floors. Local artists on display.
And it's almost finished being renovated. I'll be announcing the Opening Night very soon (I'm coordinating the gig!) and some of the workshops I'll be organizing. But for now, we need some things to make it happen.
We still need:
- Cool interesting, antique, hip, funky furnishings i.e. tables (café type), chairs, couches, stuffed chairs, Persian rugs, floor lamps, and “stuff” in good condition that you would be so kind as to donate.
- Antique style real wooden furniture (chairs and tables, etc) we have some gifted craftsmen who could turn those into projects for CommonPlace.
- Donate some ca$h to the process.
