Event description

Description

This three part series is a workshop hosted in partnership with We Stay/Nos Quedamos. Community members will have the opportunity to discuss neighborhood change, create a unique artwork and participate in a community exhibition.

Please register by phone or online (at the website below). Space is limited!

Saturday, November 18th, 12PM-2PM
Gather around with your fellow community members. Create a photo-collage and integrate your own personal experience growing-up in the Bronx. We encourage participants to bring personal photographs that reflect anecdotes or memories of the Bronx for your collages.

Saturday, December 2nd, 12PM-2PM
We will gather again to continue working on the photo-collages as we discuss different topics affecting the Bronx community. This program will also serve as a platform for participants to have a constructive and open dialogue about the changes that the borough is currently facing, while building these issues into the collages we create.

Saturday, December 16th, 12PM-2PM
In this final section, participants will finish their photo-collages. We will then discuss a Community Conversations exhibit with our partnership organization We Stay/Nos Quedamos, who will provide us with an exhibition space in one of their building’s community rooms.

Local librarians at select branches will co-facilitate these dialogues with community organizations, inviting anyone and everyone to the table to share and listen.
