Stilt City is committed to the grassroots ethic of working with and within a community, creating a participatory environment where long-term relationships and open dialogue can be fostered. Stilt City is new to The Rockaway community, and recognizes that it must start at the beginning to build roots that intertwine rather than overpower the existing systems and structures of the community.
On its founding principles, Stilt City aims to actively counteract the destructive development practices of predatory housing, and reclaim the role of art in the community as a valve for expression of its residents rather than a tool of commerce.
Stilt City wishes to begin these conversations with local artists, residents and organizations in The Rockaways.
