This workshop explores urban tactics for shaping the future of our communities. While unpacking some of the complex dynamics shaping our current political climate— new immigration policy and legislation to the rise in race-based antagonism, the discussion will focus on how we can proactively contribute to shaping NYC as a Sanctuary City. 

With Lillian MacEachern, Joshua Bardavid. This program is in conjunction with Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong's public artwork Constellation

This exhibition is made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly v isible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.
