Through the Wall

About Through the Wall Program

Through the Wall is a partnership program between Northwind Arts Center and The Boiler Room, a volunteer-operated coffeehouse and social services hub dedicated to building community by providing a safe space for the growth and improvement of individuals. Through the Wall provides visual art instruction from compensated artists (recruited by Northwind) to clientele of The Boiler Room, the majority of which are young people. The program fosters a collaborative relationship between Northwind and The Boiler Room as neighbors in the community, through our adjoining wall, and will support young and emerging visual artists.

Through the Wall is funded in part by grants from Kitsap Bank and the Rotary Club of Port Townsend
