“Tela” meaning “canvas” in Italian and “cloth” in Spanish, the TELAporter will bring our studio out to the streets. With a retractable easel and mixing table, the van will be able to unfold into a fully functioning workshop in minutes.

GOAL

To create a vehicle that can bring workshops of all kinds directly to neighborhoods. This van will be a spectacle, a curiosity, and a beacon to passers by to join in conversations and activities.

WE NEED A NEW FORMAT

 

Covid 19 Restrictions

No meetings of 10 or more

No meetings indoors

No large community paint days

People are staying home more

Setting up tables and paints on site is cumbersome and time consuming.

Getting a good paint surface is challenging. 

People aren’t particularly drawn to a regular pop up tent. 

Traveling with all of these materials is challenging in our minivans. 

ENGAGEMENT

Painting workshops

Screen printing workshops

Block Talks

Presentation of plans

Small movie nights

So much more….

FUNCTIONALITY

Onsite workspace during all of our outdoor murals

 

Secure and weatherproof tool and paint storage

 

Efficient tear down and set up of job sites

 

Can carry more ladders and our big scaffold 

 

Will help us travel for work more easily

 

Increase visibility of our work and our mission
