About the community:
Grand Street Community Arts was formed by concerned neighbors in the Mansion Neighborhood in 2003 as a way to bridge the cultural and economic divides in the neighborhood. The organization (originally named Mansion Community Arts) received its designation as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization from the IRS and negotiated the purchase of the former St. Anthony’s Church, a long-vacant cornerstone of the community and a link with its immigrant past.

This Community Conversation included representatives from Grand Street Community Arts, The Free School in Albany, Youth FX, Youth Organics, The Radix Ecological Sustainability Center, The Capital Region Refugee Roundtable, The Baby Institute, Habitat for Humanity Capital District, Trinity Alliance, Albany Housing Authority, The Albany Barn, The Albany Police Department, and WMHT.
