the project

Our collective brings together planners, architects, artists, and designers as Black urbanists. We created the BlackSpace Manifesto to practice new ways of protecting and creating Black spaces in the built environment.

Through customized learning, published content, neighborhood strategy, and urbanist experiences, BlackSpace co-creates spaces for new ideas, critical connections, and design excellence that acknowledge, affirm and amplify the lives of Black folks nationally.

This campaign will provide the funds needed for administrative and operational support of our four service areas, online community space for Black urbanists, and events hosted for the communities we serve. 

the steps

Our initiative has grown with a number of successful projects and convenings and is ready to take our work to the next level. This campaign will be a part of realizing our 2020 Chrysalis goals.  We have ambitious plans and a growing community! 

The funds collected here will help us meet our Phase 1 target for our full Chrysalis 2020 fundraising goals. 

Our Chrysalis Fundraising effort will allow us to do the following: 

1. Launch a number of products and services in 2021 that will provide urban planning and design assistance to support Black people, spaces, and culture.

2. BlackSpace is a volunteer-led collaborative! We look forward to hiring full-time staff no later than 2021, as well as implementing systems to ensure BlackSpace efficiently and effectively serves our community.

3. As BlackSpace grows its national reach, we will continue to create new workshops on co-designed and community-centered work. We will be launching a multi-day experience centering Black urbanism in 2021!

4. Our Brownsville heritage conservation partners are developing new ideas to amplify Brownsville’s neighborhood heritage and we want to continue to partnership and technical support to ongoing projects to ensure their success.

why we're doing it

Our interests are also rooted in connecting the social, environmental, and cultural causes that can together Manifest the future! We continue to push forward toward our vision of a present and future where Black people, Black spaces, and Black culture matter and thrive.
