Project Row Houses' (PRH) mission is to empower people and enrich communities through engagement, art, & direct action. Our organization brought together groups and pooled resources to materialize sustainable opportunities for artists, young mothers, small businesses, and Third Ward Residents helping to cultivate independent change agents by supporting people and their ideas so that they have tools and capacity to do the same for others. PRH is, and has always been a unique experiment in activating the intersections between art, enrichment, and preservation.
