Queens Green Day
Saturday, June 2, 2018
12:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
Presented in partnership with Queens Action Council (QuAC) and Hellgate Farm.
The inaugural Queens Green Day is a celebration of all things “green” – local ecological initiatives, food justice, gardening, urban farming, and healthy living including bike safety and advocacy. Main partners Queens Action Council (QuAC) and Hellgate Farm offer interactive presentations complemented by a variety of art-making, activities, and food demos from partners like: City Harvest, Bike New York, The Connected Chef, Smiling Hogshead Farm, Mechanical Gardens bike repair, and City Parks Foundation’s Green Girls and Coastal Classroom programs. 2018 Emerging Artist Fellows Joe Riley and Audrey Snyder will also run a natural-dye textile workshop for their upcoming installation for The Socrates Annual exhibition. On stage, we explore ways diverse cultures honor the Earth including an Eastern woodlands Indigenous presentation by Tecumseh Ceaser, kicked off by Lauren Hale Biniaris’ performance of Hungry, which uses dance, gesture, and writing to explore the interconnected worlds of seeds, sustenance, hunger, and hope.
