We're delighted to welcome Trunk Space as a partner in our First Friday celebrations.
Every first Friday of the month, thousands of residents and visitors enjoy the spirit and culture of downtown Phoenix by touring art galleries, venues, and related spaces. Grace is proud to be an official member of First Fridays, and grateful for Interno Abel’s leadership in getting us on this path.
We’re continuing Abel’s work by opening our campus from 6-10 pm each First Friday, and welcoming the First Friday crowd into our sanctuary and Hope Hall. We’ll have three or four bands play in Hope Hall, and meditative music or silence in the Sanctuary. This will be a great opportunity to welcome our community, give them a chance to see our facility, and share how Grace is in the city for good!
For our music and First Friday promotion, we’re partnering with Trunk Space, a non-profit collective of musicians and artists, whose mission is to serve as a medium for community growth, facilitate Phoenix's creativity, while supporting emerging artists and local youth. Trunk Space has been a vital part of the downtown art scene for twelve years, and has a huge, loyal following.
Over the next few months we’ll try different things and see what our community responds to. It’s our hope that we will be able to work with Trunk Space on an ongoing basis, and become an interesting stop on the First Friday circuit. For more info:
Trunk Space is popping up for September First Friday at Grace In the City: Grace Lutheran Church. This event is free but donations are encouraged and will be divided amongst the performers.
