$5,000 Goal

Kinfolk House is a collaborative project space that inhabits a 100-year-old historic home, where community and art converge in the predominantly Black and Latina/e/o neighborhood of Polytechnic in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Sedrick and Letitia Huckaby opened the doors of this historic space reimagined on the cornerstone of the creative power of Sedrick’s grandmother and original homeowner, Hallie Beatrice Carpenter, known to her friends and neighbors as, “Big Momma.” Her legacy inspires our understanding that creative pursuits exist beyond high art and academia.


Mission

Our goal is to uplift the beauty, talent, and culture in Polytechnic and feed its creativity by offering collaborative exhibitions, events, and educational opportunities of various disciplines. Through partnerships with community-minded creatives and project-based artists, we will build outside the preconceived ideas of “what art is,” exploring the intersections of life, cultural pursuits, and artistry.

Kinfolk House builds community and offers learning experiences around art. We host three projects, or exhibitions each year. Each project brings together three artists: a local artist, a Texas artist (outside of North Texas), and an artist working outside of the state. Working in this way helps our local artists grow their networks and puts voices and perspectives from outside of the region in conversation with our local communities.

Needs

Kinfolk House believes in paying artists fairly. For each of our projects, we pay our artists a stipend ($1,000) and we cover costs associated with artwork transportation, travel and lodging related to the opening reception, and materials for workshops and events.

We hope to raise $5,000 to help offset the costs associated with supporting Kinfolk artists.
