Power House Productions is an artist-run neighborhood-based nonprofit organization. Their mission is to develop and implement creative neighborhood stabilization strategies to revitalize and inspire the community. Their current project, RideIt Sculpture Park, is a do-it-yourself style skatepark built by skateboarders. The goal of the park is to create a space where neighborhood kids and adults can meet, play, create, build and exercise.
Boards for Bros is a group of skateboarders dedicated to collecting and refurbishing skateboards so they can be redistributed back into communities where children cannot afford their own. The beneficiaries of this year's Emerica/Boards For Bros efforts will be the kids of the Power House 'hood. You can help by contributing your old completes, decks, trucks & wheels to Boards for Bros at the following locations. You'll receive a same-day 10% discount on Emerica product for your contribution:
- Chiipss Skateboards & Apparel
- Plus Skateboarding
- Refuge Skateboard Shop
- Oakland Vert Skatepark
- Modern Skate & Surf
- Tru Class SkateShop
Additionally, 100 artists will be creating/donating skateboards to be sold at the Good Wood Exhibition, a skateboard deck art fundraising online auction and show. The auction begins on May 19 and final bid date will coincide with the show, on May 26 at 10-22-9 in Hamtramck, MI. 100% of funds raised will go to the initial RideIt Sculpture Park build beginning early June.
