What is Neighborhood Time Exchange?

Neighborhood Time Exchange provides selected artists with studio space, a monthly stipend, and basic tools and supplies.
In exchange for time in the storefront studio, the artists contribute volunteer time to work with residents on their ideas to enhance their neighborhood.
