The organization is behind Create @theSpace, a weekly open jam, creator and studio night; the Kenosha Mural Project, which was recognized by the Wisconsin Main Street Awards program as best public improvement project in 2015; pop-up galleries; Students Spotlight @theSpace, a partnership with Carthage College that provides live music performance and networking opportunities; BeExposed!

About the Kenosha Creative Space:

Making Good Ideas Happen


Kenosha Creative Space is the creative core of the city, a magnet for entrepreneurs, artists, and community members seeking an inclusive and resource-rich space to generate and grow their creative visions. Kenosha is a diverse city and that diversity is central to the mission of the Space. Throughout the year the KCS hosts community events and festivals; provides a venue for concerts, readings and art shows; and partners with other non-profits to help creative entrepreneurs problem-solve and develop their ideas, with the goal of establishing arts-oriented businesses within the city of Kenosha.

The Space at 624 57th Street

In art theory, the Third Space is the space between a work of art and the viewer, in which meaning is created. Kenosha’s Third Space is at the corner of 57th and 7th Avenue in the heart of downtown, where creatives and community members can gather, whether at a concert or a workshop, to exchange ideas and do the important work of letting their imaginations emerge.
