Earlier this month we told you about the ArtBuilt Mobile Studio in Seward Park, which is featuring a trilingual newspaper project called Round Robin. Through Aug. 15, local artists Sue Jeong Ka and Mélissa Emily Liu are hosting open studio hours and a variety of workshops. The organizers just passed on a bit of information about the upcoming programs. Here’s their invitation to the community:
Join Art Parley, ArtBuilt Mobile Studio in the Park’s artists-in-residence in Seward Park (in front of the library), for the last few weeks of free events and workshops this summer. Neighbors in the Lower East Side, Chinatown, and Two Bridges are invited to take part in a creative forum and conversations around immigration, neighborhood change, and cultural heritage which will inspire contents for a new issue of their trilingual newspaper to be published in Fall 2018. Through their Round Robin community newspaper headquarters in the mobile studio, artists, organizers, organizations and groups, and neighbors from communities around the park have been sharing their work and stories through free programs for kids, families, and adults. All are welcome to participate, through creative activities that include art, performance, writing, and storytelling. From now until August 15! For more information and a detailed program schedule of events, please visit https://www.facebook.com/ArtBuiltMobileStudios/.
On Facebook, flyers are available in English, Spanish and Chinese. The project is a collaboration among ArtBuilt, NYC Parks, Queens Museum, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Immigrant Social Services, and Seward Park Conservancy. Support was provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Surdna Foundation, and The New York Community Trust.
