In periodic events held at Citizen Space—a cooperative workspace dedicated to collaboration and community—Jamaican-American chef O’Brian Matterson leads interactive cooking classes on the jerk method of barbecuing meats, highlighting the diverse influences of modern Jamaican cuisine. Jerk chicken anchors the evening’s tasting menu, along with side dishes such as rice and beans, veggie ital stew, and plantains. As students learn to prepare each dish, chef Matterson fields questions on technique and grudgingly performs scenes from The Jerk while everyone samples the fruits of their labor. Throughout the session, Red Stripe beer and local wines maintain a jovial atmosphere and complement the meal’s complex blends of spices.
An open community for creative types, Citizen Space welcomes those who are looking for a space that offers the chat-friendly vibe of a coffee shop with the productivity-focused environment of a professional workspace. Anyone may join at the membership level of their choosing to gain access to dedicated resident desks and communal tables, a completely free library, and a supportive horde of like-minded programmers, painters, writers, and other artists. While the studio's open minds are largely focused on providing a spot for individuals' dream realization, they also regularly host classes that help broaden artistic horizons and teach students how to shoot paint out of a cannon.
