Charlie & Ruth Jones interviewed on WQFS on City 616, the Greensboro Grub and the future of PB & Java:
Our mission is:
To bring the diversity of our city together for the
advancement of community through
the arts, education, and service.
What we are doing at City 616 is like a hub with many spokes. See to the right for a bit more detail on each of the spokes. See below for more overview and City 616's current ongoings.
Community building is at the heart of everything City 616 does. Current programs include a monthly community dinner (called Greensboro Grub) and theater workshops put on in conjunction with local schools and the Boys and Girls Club (PAPA). City 616 currently has a 50-seat theater that has hosted local numerous artists as well as community theater productions, giving special focus to collaborations and productions that have inter-racial casts and crew.
City 616 is currently in a stage of great expansion and renovation. Most programs have been taking place on the third floor; however, the space is proving insufficient to meet program needs. The organization is making plans to renovate the first floor of the building to include a larger theater for use by City 616 and community productions (SIPS), as well as a coffee shop (PB+Java) to generate revenue for additional programs.
