Thank you for visiting our Go Fund Me page. Who We Are!
We are The PEACES Collective (TPC)
, a not-for-profit community of makers and artist in Baltimore, MD, who are committed to using our art and creativity to help make our city a better place. We create primarily handcrafted and locally made clothing accessories and décor. We’ve been popping up for a purpose at a local gallery for the past year and we are ready to take it to the next level. So, we need your help.What We Do!
The uniqueness of The PEACES Collective
is that we serve as a community common ground for three functions:
1. providing an affordable venue and cooperative environment for local artists and craftspeople to showcase their work on a consistent basis;
2. providing workshops and events that meet the needs of the community and;
3. providing training and experiential learning for youth and young adults.
We bring a community-minded, wholistic approach to retail. In addition to offering quality products, TPC seeks to meet the needs of the community by providing service through our programs. Current programs include the Wisdom, Wellness & Wealth community workshop series and the SpREAD the Word literacy program. During each pop-up, TPC hosts workshops on timely and relevant topics that are open and free to the public. Topics range from culture, “the Art of the Headwrap,” to personal development, “For the Love of Credit.” We also offer skills classes such as jewelry making, aromatherapy and starting your garden. The mission of SpREAD the Word is to promote reading, learning, and positive social growth through developmentally appropriate literacy programming for children, their parents and caregivers. We do this by providing books in community gathering places, such as barbershops and salons. How You Can Help!
Baltimore, like many urban areas, faces great challenges. You can help us make an impact. We are asking you to help us raise $15,000 for our start-up cost and to expand existing programs.
These funds will help us purchase items necessary to open, such as a point of sale system, website, signage, fixtures, and furnishings, painting, etc.
