THE GROUNDING LAB
Funded by the Heinz Endowment in 2017-2018, Founder Margaret Baco, R.N. and Nurse/Artist, provides a space in the Spartan Center in Hazelwood, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The focus of the Grounding Lab is for people to relax, create, express and connect.
THE DOOR PROJECT
Doors are a symbol of the threshold for new futures.
Unity Through Creativity has offered workshops for painting cast off doors to envision positive life stories. We have filled empty storefronts in depressed neighborhoods and involved clients at homeless and abuse shelters to paint the doors of their temporary institutions, giving hope to those who follow.
Families painted doors together at Construction Junction, Pittsburgh, PA.
