Back to work

PAC was founded in a restored storefront as a hub for local activism, and as a collaborative lab for aesthetically driven public interventions.

The New Haven Free Skool was a skill-share, intervention project offering practical skill-sets and tools for community-based, empowered, and sustainable living. Class structure emphasized non-hierarchical ways of teaching and learning.

In 2013, the city bulldozed our storefront to begin construction of luxury condominiums. The group continues to organize on Facebook and in the city of New Haven.
