Frontyard is a building, a library, a garden, and many other things.

The Vibe

Frontyard is a network of people that provides a pro-active, flexible space for practical skills-sharing, futuring, and critical research. We aim to be community-led in terms of content and usefulness, open and questioning of current systems and structures, and respectful and trusting of our fellow frontyarders.

The projects and research we’re interested in:

  • contribute to our neighbourhoods
  • agitate, facilitate, and nurture collaborations between people
  • work towards a more resilient, independent community
  • create and articulate possible futures

By taking up a residency or by hosting an event at frontyard, you are committing to maintain “The Vibe” and caretake the space in a respectful way that make others sharing it with you feel safe. We want to create a community where people are free to be themselves without judgement or discrimination, regardless of sexuality, age, ethnicity or ability. Spaces are not safe simply because we designate them as such – it requires the combined efforts of us all. There are going to be times when each of us make mistakes. These mistakes are opportunities to learn from each other, and grow as individuals and as a community. Some things to consider:

  • Respect people’s opinions, beliefs, and differing points of view
  • Respect the physical and emotional boundaries of others
  • Respect everyone’s right to live without intimidation, harassment, or discrimination
  • Respect people’s right to privacy and self-determination
  • Respect the Space itself and the fact that it is shared with many

Frontyard’s monthly open house events are where open conversation takes place with the community. If you are a resident at frontyard and one of the open house afternoons are on during your residency period, it would be appreciated if you could be there.
