What can a house be? A cinema for a film series. A card-making workshop. A record listening station. An observatory where you can watch the clouds.
Something wonderful is happening inside abandoned houses in Indianapolis’ Near Eastside: neighbors and artists are reclaiming the vacant structures and converting them into spaces for local arts and culture.
The House Life Project was conceived by local artist Meredith Brickell. Looking around at the vacant properties in her neighborhood, she wondered: “If these are going to be empty for another ten years, maybe more, what can we do as a community in the meantime?”
Working hand-in-hand with residents, the House Life Project breathes new, life into these once-neglected spaces. Learn more and support the project here.
