A MARKETPLACE OF MAKERS, MERCHANTS + MAVERICKS

HEAD WEST was founded and is curated by Jimmy Brower, in partnership with Old Oakland, The Hangar 1 Distillery in Alameda, Fourth Street Shops in Berkeley + The Barlow in Sebastopol. Participation is open to makers, crafters, designers, small brands, local shops, artists, speciality service providers and local non-profits, or what we call MAKERS, MERCHANTS + MAVERICKS.

 
 

The Mission of HEAD WEST is to create an environment that supports and embraces local creativity + the spirit of entrepreneurship. Through connecting people, we preserve arts + culture, realize our impact on the local economy + provide for the well-being of the people that keep these ideals alive. By providing physical space, participants have the rare opportunity to invite their customer-base and followers to connect with them in real life vs. only seeing them through the online world. Participants are to own their foot-traffic, promote and add to the collective gathering for each date, and at each venue they join.

Through this shared-fate mentality, HEAD WEST becomes a space where people gather to celebrate cultural diversity, the arts + crafts movement, our neighbors and our contributions to the local economy. By showing up, we bring sustainability, positivity + community consciousness to others.
