"While I was at SPACE, I was able to be a part of something bigger than myself, and give to a truly unique place. I cultivated over fifty personal relationships with working artists and professionals. I learned to cook healthy, nourishing meals, how to conduct nonprofit grant research, and just how many weeds you need to pull to recover a secret garden."
- Mason Hensley, 2015 Intern
