Students and volunteers from the inaugural year of Big Class programming, 2013.

In 2013, Antenna became the home of Big Class, a youth creative writing initiative that hosts after-school programs and workshops, and partners with area schools on projects that cultivate students’ interest in writing. Big Class was the first of Antenna’s programs developed in ‘incubation,’ where development efforts helped foster its growth into an independent 501(c)3 organization in 2015. From 2013 to 2016, Big Class ran the open studio program on the first floor of the Antenna building at 3718 St. Claude Avenue hosting free tutoring and homework help and creative writing workshops. During the 2016-17 school year, Big Class will launch a new independent tutoring center. While no longer a part of the organization, Antenna continues a strong relationship with Big Class by partnering on youth focused projects, publications, and exhibitions.
