To support Fort Maker’s local community, 50% of sale proceeds will be donated to the Henry Street Settlement Food Access Initiative, an emergency food pantry organized in partnership between Henry Street Settlement and Vision Urbana. Operated out of the Boys and Girls Republic (BGR)—with satellite locations at Henry Street’s Senior Center and its Youth Services building at 301 Henry Street—the food pantry acts as a pickup location for those affected by food insecurity, and a staging area to deliver emergency meals and pantry items to homebound residents.

“Artists are cunning and imaginative problem solvers—a critical trait to possess in our current nightmarish circumstances,” says Nana Spears, Fort Makers Co-Founder and Creative Director. “With Dreamscapes, we hope artists will take advantage of their own seclusion to access a new wellspring of ideas, and build community through this shared yet unfamiliar experience. By detaching ourselves from our current circumstances, and connecting with each other, we can create images of fantasy, fascination, comedy and play—ideas that are intrinsic to Fort Makers.”
