Outsider Art: From Alley Tagger To Creative Entrepreneur at Streetcraft

“The program’s ultimate vision is to have the youth in the program launch a micro-venture that they’re pursuing on a full-time basis,” Mooney say. “We want to have youth leave the program grounded in creative services or apparel strategy.” The program’s first cohort will be going through Launch this year, and the store will be featuring works from a different young artist each month. Come late fall, Streetcraft plans to launch a pop-up shop full of holiday gear on Santa Monica’s shopper-friendly Main Street. The project is also looking to expand to South LA, Compton, and East LA.
