Founded in 2014 by Angelina Dreem and Anibal Luque, POWRPLNT was born out of the desire to create an art space where people from all ages and backgrounds could access the opportunities of the future.
Purchasing computers with her own savings, Angelina organized local artists in the Bushwick (Brooklyn) community to create the initial launch of POWRPLNT in a 400 sq. ft storefront on Myrtle Ave. With the help of the educational designer, Hanny Ahern, the team created interest-driven programming that grabbed the attention of the greater arts community. Recruiting teachers from the ranks of the Bushwick DIY art scene, they presented a summer of photography, music production, video production, and fashion design. From there it caught fire, and POWRPLNT's second iteration was at Red Bull Studios New York, which brought our mission to an even larger audience.
