SEABA & Speeders : Breaking Down the Walls, a new collaboration!
The on-going goal of SEABA, a 501c6 Non-for-Profit, is promoting the creative community and economic vitality of the South End of Burlington. SEABA in partnership with Speeder & Earls will take our community vision a step further by tearing down the walls and creating a coffee lounge in the SEABA Gallery at 404 Pine Street.
We plan to make the Gallery into a relaxed community meeting & gathering space surrounded by art and coffee. A place to come and relax on our couches, listen to local music, play games, free wifi, enjoy our curated exhibits, have quiet meeting space and just relax a bit longer while enjoying your Speeder & Earls coffee or tea.
This venture allows Speeders to expand in the South End. SEABA will maintain our office and curated exhibits. The community will benefit by having a wonderful community space in the South End. It will also allow for joint special events during the evening hours. Hoping for a grand opening ceremony on May 1st!
