Community Event

Giving Space/Changing Space

Saturday, September 17, 2022
6 – 7:30PM
In the busy immigrant neighborhood of Jackson Heights, how do we give space with and to and for each other? How do we change public spaces to support community wellness? In this interactive art experience, we explore how, we – as children, as women, as new immigrants, as life-long New Yorkers – give and change space, how we are part of a larger whole, and how we change the whole through the light of our presence and participation. Building on our practice of public art for healing in public spaces. We will host this art at a local Jackson Heights public park and/or in the open streets so that a range of community members can participate.
