Collective Spaces is a shared costume shop space that has grown into a supportive creative community that, along with several other textile artists and businesses, is making this unassuming building in the CEZ a regional hub for artistry in needle and thread. Collective Spaces is home to a multitude of artists including: Tulip Design, Judy Hornbacher, Amy B. Kaufman, Sarah Thorson, and Dunwoody students and graduates of the Industrial Sewing Program. By providing a unique and affordable space for costume makers and textile artists, Collective Spaces offers an excellent opportunity for artists to launch their own business or house an established one. They also offer sewing lessons, and are looking for new ways to contribute to and connect with the surrounding community.
With the aim of growing this burgeoning textile community, Collective Spaces is the first featured enterprise in the “CEZ: We Make It Here” project, which will highlight a new creative enterprise in the Zone every month in 2016 through August. As part of the project, they will also unveil a unique textile display in the storefront window at 2506 University Ave. to draw the attention of passersby and highlight the work of this unique creative community thriving in the Zone.
