A response to the urgent need for healing and action. A promise to support local organizations through monthly collections (financial and / or material items); to gather and distribute mindful material via Commend’s lending library; to spark meaningful and actionable conversation; to encourage focused meditation for maneuvers of change.

We will draw from the great source of information and inspiration that is our community, holding each other - and ourselves - accountable for mindful, radical acts that affect our greater universe. We seek to look outside the inner space, too, and engage deeply with the multi-layered and multi-directional healing work happening around us, before us, and after us.

The touchstone of COME! MEND! is the Town Hall meeting series, which invites members of the community and knowledgeable representatives to present and unpack critical issues. Each meeting will be a new opportunity to engage and act, with a specific directive to be completed during its course.


Upcoming events:

In a continuation of conversations about accessibility and safety, this month Come! Mend! is partnering with ADAPT Community Network. ADAPT works to provide crucial services and programs to people with disabilities. As community members, we will learn about their work and how we can support their efforts.



Guest hosts Shani Fintoni and ADAPT will introduce a new guide in development which identifies the accessibility of New York artspaces and venues. They will instruct us, as art space operators and patrons, on how to contribute to this guide and practical steps we can take to expand accessibility for everyone.
