Renovating St. Anthony's

Grand Street Community Arts is in the final stages of planning for a full build out and renovation of the historic St. Anthony’s Church space, on all floors, to better serve our mission as both a center for the community and a point of stability to aid its renaissance.

BINGO NIGHT

We are opening up the St. Anthony’s Sanctuary for weekly BINGO games. Food will be available, courtesy of local cooks and restaurants. You don't want to miss it!

Coming Soon: Free Mesh Wifi!

With advisory input from several local nonprofit foundations and agencies, to center a community free mesh WiFi sign-on for the Mansion and Pastures neighborhoods, and eventually all of the South End, in our tower.

Citizen Journalism

We are training new generations of citizen journalists by reaching out to not only community leaders but all members of our various neighborhoods to start recording the world around them. This will create content for online news and radio broadcasts made for the people, by the people.

PAST PROGRAMS

A key, highly successful, early project was the YouthFX media project for our city’s young people. Additionally, the Youth Organics project worked with the neighborhood gardens GSCA pioneered throughout the Mansion Neighborhood. The Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars, Kimya Dawson, and most of the Capital District’s up-and coming deejays and rappers have played our stage; the St. Rocco’s Poetry Collective, and the 2017 Grassroots Radio Conference all found a home in St. Anthony’s. In addition, Grand Street has seen meetings about key community concerns, from the new wastewater plant in Lincoln Park to neighborhood clean-up days, dances for young and old, and various children’s events and classes. It’s where people have come for work, to learn the sweet science of boxing, for lively bazaars, and much more.
