596 Acres will share stories about community land access organizing in NYC, followed by a hands-on workshop to create signs for sparking community organizing! With signs, we can make visible opportunities to create community spaces in our neighborhoods, and connect with our neighbors. All welcome! Ground floor, no steps to get in. There will be some snacks and so many good ideas. It’s part of Earth Arts Center’s a day long festival! Facebook event here.
We are partnering with Bronx Community Health Network to kick off Bronx Health Week at Poe Park with a Mother’s Day Salsa Dance Party! We will be tabling and sharing information to raise awareness on advocacy to reopen the Poe Park Bandshell (lot page here). Learn more about the history of this place in this blog post. Check back here for updates. Photo: Dance Contest at Poe Park, Sep 4, 1938. Photo from NYC Parks Department website.
