Kenny’s vision is to serve as an outdoor community and cultural celebration space. Presently, Homewood does not have an outdoor, community-friendly space. There are countless positive, enriching ideas in the works, art in the making, and conversations in process – all without a space to engage with and elevate them.
While Homewood is often portrayed negatively by the media, it is asset-rich with an expansive cultural history and houses many current news-makers, ranging from makers to musicians to craftsmen. Kenny’s is unique in that some events are formally organized while others are a byproduct of neighbors just hanging out on a Saturday afternoon. Kenny’s believes that these values of openness and acceptance cultivate a sense of social cohesion and social capital while bringing out an enjoyable and safe experience for all.
