The Flock 2012
“Arts Party on the Plaza”
(Brooklyn, NY) Art is a cause for celebration and creates a space for gathering. With this in mind, F.O.K.U.S. created The Flock in collaboration with Soul of Brooklyn, to share unique craftsmanship and provide an opportunity for strangers, artists and art forms to gather in one eclectic place. On Sunday June 3rd from 1-6pm, artists and their communities will gather at The Flock to showcase and engage with the arts under the summer sun at the Putnam Triangle Plaza(on Fulton and Putnam) in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, NY. Live music, art exhibitions, and workshops will be available for creative folks of all ages. DJ Lynnee Denise will be providing the musical soundtrack for the event in addition to a live performance by Sophia Urista.
New Yorkers will be invited to Brooklyn to peruse artwork, watch performances, shop for various goods, support small local businesses and participate in creative workshops. 15 vendors/ artists (of many mediums)/ artist educators will set up shop for one day only, providing a space for anyone, children and adults, to experience a variety of artwork in one space at their leisure. The Flock 2012 will focus on supporting creative small business models, that have become characteristic of Brooklyn, through its collaboration with the FAB (Fulton Area Business Alliance) and Sacred Brooklyn Yoga and Movement Studio. Come join us for an afternoon of music, dancing, crafting, and celebrating art in its many forms!

When & Where
FOKUS increases the public's access to the arts through arts education programming and community-based arts events. Our mission is to educate, empower and unite diverse communities by using the arts.
FOKUS is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit that nurtures creativity in communities by exposing their members to art experiences. This is to help them discover their own creativity and use it to better themselves and their communities.
We also publish INSIGHT, an online arts magazine. INSIGHT magazine is based on the concept that we often look to art to define past civilizations. In turn, we provide insight into the artists who are shaping our culture through their work today. We provide insight into the worlds of actors, musicians, designers, fine artists, emerging artists and those who do not immediately come to mind when thinking about the arts/artists, such as culinary artists and industrial designers.
