Per Mayor Theken initiative to help with requests from city residents that need studio space– the City of Gloucester will be offering FREE  shared space at the Fitz Henry Lane House during the day in month blocks.

email subject line: Public art

Residents- We are keeping a list of residents who have a project idea for the city  or  have questions such as available sites and locations or funding. 

Organizations/Places of Worship/Business- Please let us know if you have available free space such as interior or exterior walls, windows, parking lots. We have requests for: displays, street art, pop up movie nights, artisan markets, performances, studio space, programming. Maybe we can make a match. 

Send or text an image! Do you have a favorite corner, steps, view, from your Ward or any spot in Gloucester that you think would be a good one for creative arts project (temporary or permanent)– or maybe it’s one that should be left alone.

email subject line: St. Peter’s Square LOCAL MARKET one day a month

Mayor Theken is talking about putting the town square back into St. Peter’s Square to go with the block parties. The idea is a local market by residents for residents. There’ll be tables and chairs to hang out. Pick up some local fish & lobster, crafts, flowers and vegetables during the day. At night sit and relax, have some coffee, listen to soft music. Email if you want to join the planning or have questions.

Mayor Theken wants to give a couple of shout outs:

Awesome Gloucester for supporting so much art and culture.

Ward councilors are holding meetings next week in YOUR neighborhoods. They work hard. The Mayor is going. Can’t go? No problem. Use that email. The Mayor  is committed to assuring that citizen voices are amplified, assessed and acted upon. Every resident matters!
