On November 21, 2019 the first step was taken in the process of constructing the Creative Alliance’s new Creativity Center. The Center, designed to support expanded educational and community programming, is scheduled to open in 2022.
The Creativity Center will be located directly across Eastern Avenue from the Creative Alliance’s flagship location, The Patterson. Demolition of the existing structure at 3137 Eastern Avenue has begun to make way for the new Center. The site, formerly the bar La Raza Cantina, was purchased by the Creative Alliance in 2014 and was deemed unfit for the planned uses by the project architect, Quinn Evans. Together the Creative Alliance’s two buildings will form an Eastern Avenue cultural gateway to Baltimore’s Highlandtown’s Arts & Entertainment District.
The Creativity Center will offer state-of-the-art classrooms, a professional-quality dance studio floor, and a teaching kitchen. The Center’s accessible facilities will support life-long learning through workshops, classes, dances, performances, social gatherings, community dinners, and events that showcase and share the rich cultural traditions of our multi-racial, multi-ethnic community and city.
Construction will begin in 2021. Creative Alliance plans to launch the new Creativity Center in 2022.
Demolition is partially funded by the State of Maryland through the Baltimore Regional Neighborhoods Initiative.
