DESCRIPTION

As the summer comes to a close, we come together to celebrate our communities’ vibrant culture. Queens is a borough historically known for its abundance of migrants and working class families. In a climate that often makes us feel separated or isolated, we should always remind ourselves that we are not alone and that together we have strength.

During the week of Saturday Sept 28th through Saturday October 5th, we welcome you to participate in activities and workshops that embrace the neighborhood! These daily events aim to address local issues such as immigration, displacement, anti-gentrification, and the diaspora at large. These activities will initiate and inspire community members through art and culture.

We would like to invite local members of all cultural backgrounds for “Linggo Ng Samahan” (Week of Community) as we share space, resources, and build towards empowering the community. All events are free and open to the public.
We look forward to hearing each others’ stories and experiences through cultural expression and educational discussions.

Mabuhay! (Greetings)
