Like a living room, CultureHouse is a place where all should feel comfortable to hang out with no requirement to purchase anything.
Employing DIY and tactical urbanism, we work to create a livable space that works for people using methods that can be applied elsewhere.
CultureHouse is a third space between home and work to hang out, meet people, create, share skills, and learn.
As a vibrant cultural institution in the Boston area, CultureHouse brings the community aspect of a public park inside to use year-round.
We host regular programming determined by the community such as board game and trivia nights, conversations, community dinners, and live music.
We opened our first indoor pop-up at Bow Market in July 2018. We hosted 50 events over 27 staffed days including 5 concerts, 5 tutorials, 4 ping pong tournaments, and 4trivia competitions.
We pop-up in outdoor spaces like public parks and plazas. We’ve popped up in Lafayette Plaza in Cambridge, Jackson Mann Plaza in Allston, Union Square in Somerville, and participated in Cambridge PARK(ing) Day..
Using open source digital fabrication methods, we design and build elements that foster community.
We wrote and published a report with the goal of sharing what we’ve learned and empowering others to create indoor public spaces in their own communities. You can view the report here.
