OUR MISSION AND VISION
OUR MISSION AND VISION
The Liink Project is a grass-roots community effort to create a safe, structured, and supportive environment to incubate black owned businesses in the Greater Seattle Area.
Our development plans include a venue to host a black owned creative commons, art gallery, live performance, commercial kitchen, and media production resources for under-served black artists and entrepreneurs in our city.
With a space to display their goods, demonstrate their services, showcase their art, and network with like-minded community members their chances of success will be substantially increased and stimulate more economic activity to support their growth.
Imagine a place where blackness in America isn’t represented by anything bitter, but instead the sweetness of our love for one another is always on display. Where black culture, art, and entrepreneurship is assigned value by the same hearts and minds that forge that magic. Where freedom, inspiration, and community are abundant in order to help black business owners get established and poised for growth.
We believe the time is now and the road leading to our prosperity will be paved when we have more ways to come together.
We have a team ready, willing and able to build this dream factory…but we can’t do it alone. We need our entire city’s help to bring this much needed collection of resources to the aid of those we seek to serve.
