NEW COMMUNITY SPACE OPENS IN KENSINGTON

NKCDC partners with Mural Arts, DBHIDS

A new Porch Light hub has opened its doors at 2774 Kensington Avenue, Philadelphia. Porch Light is an unusual collaboration between Mural Arts Philadelphia and the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS). At the "Kensington Storefront" near the Somerset El stop, Porch Light is working in partnership with NKCDC, Prevention Point Philadelphia, Impact Services Corporation and other local community members and organizations.

Children entering storefront

The Kensington Storefront is a flexible community space where people can make art and connect to health services. "We believe that hands-on art-making provides a strong pathway for individual and community healing," Mural Arts says. Future events will include art workshops, housing counseling sessions and neighborhood meetings. Artists Parris Stancell and Josh Sarantitis will also create a mural with community members using the storefront as workspace. Learn more here.
