The Breakfast All Day Collective, a DreamMaker Project of the Ink People Center for the Arts (Eureka, CA), opened OUTER SPACE in Arcata as an “Arts Center for the Community” on Jan 16, 2017. Since then they have hosted over 70 events in the building located at 11th and M St in Arcata. All of the events, ranging from poetry workshops, art shows, yoga classes, writing groups, and live music have been 100% ALL AGES, DRUG FREE and ALCOHOL FREE. OUTER SPACE is a volunteer run effort with no paid employees and is 100% grass roots funded. When there isn’t a scheduled event happening, OUTER SPACE also acts as a retail space for local artists, musicians, writers, and crafts people. Breakfast All Day Collective & Outer Space strive to provide a safe(r) space for people from marginalized groups and diverse backgrounds of all ages to express themselves and congregate with their peers. Outer Space focuses on community building, youth empowerment, and promotion of understanding societies varying forms of oppression through education and creative expression.
“Young people should be allowed to have pretty unfettered access to feed their curiosity about the world and figure out who they are and what their beliefs and values are. I think that art is a really wonderful gateway to exploring different parts of yourself and the world around you,” Alex Nordquist, Breakfast All Day Co-Founder.
