Huckaby Studios (Sedrick Huckaby & Letitia Huckaby)
Fort Worth, Texas
Cultural Organizing, Social Practice
Kinfolk House is a community project space based in a 100 year-old historic house in the predominantly Black and Latinx Polytechnic Heights Community of Fort Worth, Texas. The house will be a space where the artists invite and partner with community-minded creatives, locally and at large, offering collaborative events, exhibitions, and workshops of various disciplines. Their goal is not only to inspire, transform, and elevate the community of Poly, but to highlight the richness that already exists within it.
