What’s the Birdhouse?
The Birdhouse is an open community space in the historic Fourth & Gill Neighborhood of Knoxville, Tennessee.
The Birdhouse is a largely volunteer-run effort, incorporated with the State of Tennessee and fiscally sponsored through United Mountain Defense.
This community center, funded only by the people, is a completely unique enterprise where the whole region comes together to create, build, eat, garden, dance, learn, share and organize with and for each other.
Currently, we are actively raising funds for the repair and upkeep of the building; an 1880′s Victorian-era home.
Our mission is to provide a community-operated and organized venue in the interest of fortification and preservation of community space, The Neighborhood Center provides venue for the building and strengthening of the 4th and Gill neighborhood of Knoxville, Tennessee. The overall goal of this project is the preservation, renovation and viable operation of the building known as the 4th and Gill Neighborhood Center. We partner with the residents of the community in providing community space where active skill sharing, DIY workshops, gardening, participatory media production, historical documentation, and artistic creation, performance and exhibition can contribute to the life of the immediate community and the general public.
