Too often described as the region’s “epicenter” of addiction, homelessness, and incarceration, Mass. and Cass is the product of conflicting processes of care and control that have created a hypervisible yet poorly understood crisis. Building on years of lived and work experience, our team aims to reactivate an anchor space, the Engagement Center, with a pop-up community lab. Through arts programming, consistent presence, and a revolving set of curators, we hope the lab will be an energetic space for guests and staff to create beauty, share resources, and come together around storytelling. We believe a space designed around trust and voice at Mass. and Cass can affirm the inherent worth and autonomy of its street-based, unhoused, drug-using, and care-giving communities. It can also be a hopeful space to invite those with different forms of power into a more honest conversation about the future of Mass and Cass and, more broadly, the location of crisis.
