CultureHouse Bow Market

Bow Market courtyard

July 2018

Bow Market, Somerville, MA

CultureHouse opened our first indoor community space at Bow Market in Union Square, Somerville. This one-month iteration allowed us to test out our ideas, garner feedback, and reflect on our progress. With swings, games, books, and trampolines, it wasn’t hard to sell the space to kids – but it was just as easy to convince adults that it was time to play! Read our recap of the impacts of the space on Medium.


After our pop-up at Bow Market, we wrote the CultureHouse Manual, which goes over how we opened it and what we learned.
