NYC is made up of many neighborhoods that reflect different cultures, dreams, and stories. In June we will map and explore the communities that make up the Big Apple through art, movement, storytelling, and hands-on exploration for the whole family.
We encourage all persons with disabilities to attend. To request additional information regarding accessibility or accommodations at a program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 646.774.2482. Program venues are accessible via wheelchair accessibility points, and ASL interpretation can be arranged two weeks in advance.
Schedule of Events:
Especially for toddlers
Join us to celebrate Pride with Drag Queen Story Hour! The performer will read stories about neighborhoods and traveling around the city, and we'll have a dance party at the end!
11:30am–12pm & 12:30–1pm
Toddlers and children up to 12 years old
Dance with the environment, and you are part of it! Move with Parcon Resilience and D A N C I T E C T U R E to safely explore cityscape and energy through guided group experiences and consensual movement practice. Parcon Resilience is a method for embodying social justice through a movement vocabulary inspired from Parkour (Urban obstacle course running) and Contact Improvisation (a duet form based on dialoging through weight sharing.) D A N C I T E C T U R E invites exploration of spatial and emotional atmospheres through mindful movement with an art installation.
ArchForKids Art Making
Art making is appropriate for families of all ages and abilities. Children with special needs are encouraged to come make art with us.
Go through time to explore New York City through its buildings and structures with ArchForKids. Explore an illustrated timeline of notable structures and events from First Nations to present day. Learn architectural elements and building styles by re-creatings facades of NYC buildings as a family.
Each month, artists from Superhero Clubhouse will create an installation to transform our space based on our monthly theme. Look for surprises on every corner — they pop up for one day only!
Learn about plants from a High Line Gardener! Each month we will have a new, hands-on activity based on our theme. Families will also be able to observe and touch our worms!
All children must be attended by a caregiver at all times.
This program is held rain or shine.
