Project Description

 

We've been open a year and we're still open!!!

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you to...

every person and organization who has supported us before and during the pandemic.

BrickRose Exchange provides safe art event space, training, and forums for entrepreneurs, artists, community organizers, and purpose-driven professionals who make an impact on their communities. To date, we have hosted 77 events in a year for such organizations as United for Respect, Black Speakers Network, and StartingBloc.

Why BrickRose Exchange?

Like most visionaries, BrickRose Exchange owner, Bianca J. Jackson found herself at a crossroads in 2017. She was leading a trailblazing career as one of few African American women in tech journalism at her nine to five—and for the most part, her career was pretty sweet. But it wasn’t what Bianca already had that was driving her to make a change—it’s what she knew the world was missing.  

Born and raised in a tight-knit Philadelphia community, Bianca had experienced first-hand the magic that transpires when people are brought together in the spirit of love, inclusion, and purpose. 

And she wanted people from all walks of life to know that same joy. By 2018, Bianca had stepped fully into her calling, with the promise of transforming communities guiding her way. 

After a full year of unteaching herself the transactional nature of business in corporate America—in order to reconnect to her spirited roots—BrickRose Exchange was born!  

On a quaint block in Baltimore’s Canton neighborhood, BrickRose exchange opened its doors in 2019—and Bianca’s dream of creating a space where people from all walks of life could experience a slice of that heavenly inter-connectivity that she had known so well as a child finally became a reality.  

People from all along the east coast—and beyond—flock to hold receptions, dinners, retreats, expos, art shows and a host of other meaningful events in BrickRose’s three versatile, cozy and inspiring gathering rooms.

BrickRose Exchange is a 900 square foot art gallery available any simple, elegant event imaginable.

We started this campaign in 2018 which helped in securing the location. We opened mid-year 2019 after Phase I of the renovations were completed.

 

Our goal is to continue to be a safe space for collaboration and inspiration and expand what's available. Therefore, we would like to start on Phase II of renovations.

We just need your help. 

Brickhouse Exchange is built on the foundation of commerce, community, and culture. 

The money raised through this round of the iFundWomen campaign will be used to fund interior and exterior renovations that include a space for video and podcast recording and rental hours by a tutor who's assisting students with remote learning.

The power of BrickRose Exchange lies with the community, so we decided to turn to a platform like iFundWomen to get the job done.
