host at the birdhouse
Our mission is to provide a community-operated and organized venue in the interest of fortification and preservation of community space. Included in this mission is the preservation, renovation and viable operation of the building known as the Fourth and Gill Neighborhood Center. The community center, located at the corner of Fourth and Gill Avenue, has been instrumental in shaping the community and character of the neighborhood for nearly half a century. Adopting the moniker ‘The Birdhouse’ in the mid-2000’s, we strive to partner with the residents of the community in providing a space where active skill sharing, DIY workshops, kids camps, participatory media production, historical documentation, and artistic creation, performance and exhibition can contribute to the life of the immediate community and the general public.
