Short statement about the Overlook’s mission

“We’re in a throwaway world. Because I work in furniture, I know how long it takes to build something good; it’s much longer than it does in mass production.” Mac Moulden | 1937-2016

The Community Space

Short statement about the building

As the economic and political landscape of Indiana continues to change, it is vital to secure permanent spaces for radical organizing, learning, cooperation, gardening, public events, non-profit efforts, and open discussions. We are a collective of artists, inventors, non-profits, community organizers, and makers creating that space in Bloomington, Indiana.

Many community center buildings are rented rather than owned. We now own a space that we are working to make accessible to the community and sustainable over time. Without the stress of rent hikes, we are better positioned to increase mission-driven programming over time and maximize resources to the community. If you like this can-do attitude and want to work to revitalize our neighborhoods with skills, friendships, and more, then stop by the Overlook.

Neighborhood Planting Project

Short statement about NPP

We’re planning the planting and maintenance of hundreds of native fruit-bearing trees and bushes in the yards and public spaces of four west-side neighborhoods, for free to neighborhood landowners.
