PERHAPS HOME IS NOT A PLACE,
BUT SIMPLY AN IRREVOCABLE CONDITION.

Workshops at Louis Place

︎LAUNCHING VIRTUALLY JULY 2020︎


Workshops at Louis Place are for artists, writers, thinkers, dreamers, agents, and citizens. (In other words, they are for you!)

Our Orbit workshop is for anyone ready for weekly, guided creative practice in a supportive environment. Our Trajectory workshop is for writers with a narrative project that is ready for peer feedback (or anyone who needs a deadline): participants in this group will have two opportunities to share 10-25 pages of a work in progress. 

At Louis Place is a community that takes ideas seriously. All forms of storytelling are welcome.

Manuscript consulting and creative coaching


Do you need individualized support for a narrative project? We offer one-on-one manuscript consulting for writers who need customized help. Building from your strengths and successes, tackling your challenges, and with an eye on your specific goals, we will develop a plan that is specific to your needs. 

The Horizon at Louis Place

Our work at Louis Place is a form of self-study; the subject is us. At the intersection of three neighborhoods with remarkably complex histories—Weeksville, Ocean Hill, and Bedford Stuyvesant—we are always thinking about what we have inherited. Energized by the history of protest, activism, organizing, education, and advocacy in our neighborhood, we turn outward as well as inward for inspiration.


We bring people together to pay homage to the legacy of black, visionary, community organizations who chose imagination over oppression, activism over disenfranchisement. 

We use archival research, interviews, field recordings, drawing, mapping, cooking and movement demonstrations, and other tools to help us find new perspectives and insights into revising and completing the work that began before us.
