Arts Symposium at University Settlement This Weekend

Our friends and neighbors at University Settlement, Henry Street Settlement, along with many other community organizations, are teaming up on a free three-day event that begins this evening at the University Settlement building, 184 Eldridge St.

The Art is Not Apart Symposium will bring together artists, educators, curators and community workers who seek to reclaim the arts as an integral part of community life.

Collaboratively designed and hosted by two of New York’s oldest yet most innovative community-based organizations, it includes evening programs tonight and tomorrow. Saturday features 90-minute workshops given by local artists and a community dinner and evening program of “Smart Art Manifests & Artist Shares” with talks by Ping Chong, Melanie Joseph, Russell Granet, Tamara Greenfield.

Attendance is free but registration is required. See the website for times and details.
