We are so excited about this event!!!
We are thrilled to be partnering with The Laundromat Project for such an important discussion.
Sustaining Neighborhoods: Artists Move Beyond Gentrification
Saturday, February 22, 10:00am – 5:00pm
La Casa Azul Bookstore and The Laundromat Project present “Sustaining Neighborhoods: Artists Move Beyond Gentrification,” a one-day event focused on the impact of arts and gentrification in New York City. We will explore how rapid neighborhood change affects artists as community members, how artists address gentrification in their work, as well as how artists and arts organizations can be stabilizing forces in their own neighborhoods.
This two-part event will include critical dialogue through a panel discussion and capacity building with a workshop that will give artists resources to pursue residential sustainability.
Confirmed participants include artist Adeola Enigbokan and representatives from Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development, Inc., ArtHome, Artspace/PS109, and Actors Fund-Affordable Housing Initiatives.
$10 admission, light refreshments provided.
