Alloverstreet: East Oliver Street Art Walk is a monthly night of simultaneous art openings and events spanning the many diverse art spaces in Station North. Winner of City Paper’s “Best Art Walk That Doesn’t Suck” in 2014, Alloverstreet hosts hundreds of visitors for free performances and exhibitions on the first Friday of every month, from 5:00 - 10:00PM on E Oliver Street between Greenmount and Guilford Avenues. Alloverstreet evolved organically out of Process Collective's on-going practice in late 2013 and was born out of an intention to create more accessible and inclusive artistic happenings at artist-run venues at the Copycat. Directed by Kimi Hanauer and Lee Heinemann for its first two years, Alloverstreet is now supported by Station North Arts & Entertainment, Inc.

Background & Approach
Alloverstreet's structure is based on two significant values:
- Alloverstreet is democratically curated. Any art space, collective or individual who wishes to be involved is welcome.
- Alloverstreet is collectively run. Participating spaces collectively control the development of the project.
This rhizomatic structure, in which no one entity may entirely control the direction of the project, has developed through years of dialogical-democratic engagement between consistent participators and continues through monthly project meetings. As part of these project meetings, where participating spaces discuss the project and its development, SNAE, inc. also hosts professional development workshops with visiting artists and professionals that are based on participators needs and desires. Alloverstreet attempts to unite different audiences and works to broaden the scope and reach of independently run art spaces. Learn more about Alloverstreet's methodology here.
