Celebrate Mayfair uplifts the talent, beauty, and history of the Mayfair community. We believe that by creating a platform for shared arts & cultural experiences, we can connect residents and reduce blight in our neighborhood.
The School hosts a series of celebration’s to spotlight the talent of Mayfair residents. Mayferia events showcase local talent AND serve as a place for residents to learn about community issues and resources. Events also feature food demos, children’s maker activities, community resource information, and crafts from local vendors.
Over the past two years, the School worked with community stakeholder, place-based organizations, and residents to identify and beautify 3 blighted areas in the Mayfair. The School leveraged its relationships with local artists to help transform spaces into inviting areas where residents want to congregate. We plan to continue this work in the coming years.
In alignment with upcoming Mayferia events and community beatifications, the School facilitates a community pride marketing campaign. We work with community-based organizations to identify slogans and imagery that capture the beauty and vibrancy of the Mayfair.
