Social Practice Art (Lower Price Hill)


Kachelle and Alicia have been friends for 2 years.

The two met through their shared love of art and together have activated their neighborhood through projects that they call “social practice art.” They aim to call to attention the challenges and gifts of their neighborhood while bringing other artists into their “Artist Collective” group to spend time making art together.


“I like to help people get together,” said Kachelle. “And I like Starfire and working with Danyetta. I don’t know what I’d do without this.”


“I don’t think Kachelle realizes how much she means to me,” Alicia said, Community Engagement Coordinator from Community Matters. “I think she has a lot of power. I love seeing her every week. She lights up any time she comes and we’re doing art together.”
