A 2016 RECAP on STREET HQ (located inside Westfield Palm Desert):
Since ending our One Year Residency with Westfield Palm Desert, we have been able to look back and reflect on what an amazing experience and opportunity that partnership was for our organization. We were able to educate hundreds of new members in our community about our mission and local art community.
In our space inside Westfield we also had the ability to work with as many local organizations and businesses as we could. We hosted as many visual artists as we could. We provided a stage for as many bands as we could. We gave a microphone and speakers to as many poets and creative writers as we could. We even provided opportunity for sound bath healers and yoga.
