Since 2002, CAMP has been a leader on Cherokee Street and beyond in community development, the arts, cultural programming and offering space to community and environmental justice organizations. CAMP brings thousands of neighbors and St. Louisans together every year for art, culture and new thinking. CAMP brings its work to fruition on three floors packed with activity, excitement and color!

We invite you to consider an end of the year gift to support the exciting and important work of the Community Arts and Movement Project and its umbrella and non-profit projects! See below for the highlights of our work in 2013!

Please consider a donation to CAMP!

In 2013, CAMP organized the 4th annual multicultural People's Joy Parade with thousands of participants as part of Cherokee Street’s Cinco de Mayo celebration.

CAMP supported the work of dozens of artists, performers and activists by hosting over 400 events including Kwanzaa, the Superheroes, and Intercambio language practice events.
CAMP supports green space including its beautiful pocket park, Cherokee Real Garden--Cherokee Street's public art garden and plaza that hosts the Cherokee Farmers Market--and CAMP's backyard permaculture garden that supports bees, chickens and fruit trees.
CAMP hosted potlucks in its new community kitchen including Food Not Bombs free meal shares, and cooking classes for kids--working with hundreds of neighbors in the spirit of mutual aid.

CAMP is substantially complete with doubling the number of offices / studios. We are also designing a new lounge space / meeting area on the 2nd floor.
CAMP is an offers affordable space for community and justice organizations to use:
Cherokee Street International Market—supported low-income farmers and entrepreneurs in the community by bringing local healthy food and crafts to the residents in a high poverty neighborhood.
In 2013 CAMP mobilized and inspired hundreds of people to volunteer thousands of hours that impacted the lives of tens of thousands of people! From art to food justice, culture to environmental justice. CAMP’s programs taught skills, met the needs of the community while supporting work for social change. In 2014, we plan to continue our important community development work in the neighborhood and social justice work around the region. A donation to us today will support culture, art, education and justice in the St. Louis region.
