What is "The Hub"?
Soooo glad you asked. The Hub is our nickname for all the various activities, community events, coffee shop, stage and residential housing planned for our magnificent building at 614 S. Elm St., Greensboro, NC! Take a few minutes to watch the slide show above that explains in more detail. But to be brief, our plans are to convert this old hotel into a hub activity which include the following:
Greensboro Grub: This is the community dinner we offer once a month. People from all walks of life find a home, a warm meal and loving interaction.
PB & Java: A Dessert Bar & Coffee Shop specializing in all things Peanut Butter! A community gathering place for coffee, internet, conversation, food and friends.
Spittin’ Image Performance Spot (SIPS): A place for actors, singers, performers, songwriters, poets and artists to offer their work to the community. A meeting place of joy.
Professional Academy of Performing Arts (PAPA):
Teaching & mentoring underprivileged urban kids in the Performing Arts. Eventually becoming professional school for all ages developing actors, dancers, singers and writers.
Namida Residential Studies: Using the 15 rooms on the 2nd floor, we hope to offer internships and training for others seeking to reach the City through the Arts and rich Community.
Over the next few years we will be raising funds (hint: notice the donation link below!) to make these plans a reality. Contact us and arrange an appointment to come see da place! We could have a meal together or have coffee on the front step and dream of the day we will drinking it on the inside!
