Dorchester Art + Housing Collaborative

The Dorchester Art + Housing Collaborative (DA+HC) is a rehabilitated public housing project, a block of 32 townhomes that provides housing for artists and community members with the intent of fostering dialogue and collaboration between both groups. The DA+HC is mixed income housing and features an even distribution of artist, public, affordable rate, and market rate housing. Originally conceived in 2011, the project was spearheaded by the Rebuild Foundation in partnership with the Chicago Housing Authority, Brinshore Development, and Landon Bone Baker Architects. In addition to housing units, the project features a new arts center complete with a spring-loaded dance studio as well as a public meeting space and community garden. DA+HC functions as a hub for programs like Coffee, Tea, and Chat, a gathering of neighborhood residents who convene weekly to discuss ways to improve the Greater Grand Crossing area.

The Dorchester Art + Housing Collaborative is ADA accessible.
