New Eastside Center revitalizes community

The Eastside Coalition Center celebrated its grand opening with city leaders and community members present.

The center will serve as a hub for performing arts in the Eastside by offering classes in art, poetry, music and dance for as little as $5, while many of the classes are free.

The center will be operated by The Truth Musiq Movement, a nonprofit focused on using performance arts to educate youth on local issues. The center will also have career-focused workshops for adults who want to learn interviewing skills and job etiquette.

The Eastside Coalition Center is located at 3144 Commerce St.
