SPACEcraft brings creativity into an active environment, sharing hands-on art experiences inside of two converted shipping containers. Both instructor-led and self-guided programs on the themes of Make, Play, Read, and Grow will invite people to interact and create together at each site SPACEcraft visits.

This one-of-a-kind project is produced with the support of Creative Pinellas and is funded by the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners, and is scheduled to travel throughout the county with new stops every eight weeks. This public art project is an original work conceived and produced by Carrie Boucher, Bridget Elmer, and Mitzi Gordon.  To connect with the SPACEcraft project, explore the calendar and discover upcoming sites, please visit explorespacecraft.com.
