Event Overview

BQLT has partnered with The Motor Company and OPEN – ODA’s Public Engagement in Neighborhoods – to bring you The Motor Company’s 9th annual outdoor theater festival, Communal Spaces, to five of our community gardens. These festival performances focus on, are directly influenced by and respond to the communities and spaces they are in so they are unique to each community garden and the people that are there.
