We are looking for a group of 20 community members* who are interested in learning about organizing, design, architecture and art in public spaces, and who want to participate in potential improvements to Flushing Meadows Corona Park. ‘Learners’ that are selected for this creative education project will participate in 10 hands-on learning events and group homework assignments from November 2014 through March 2015. A final exhibition at the Queens Museum in April will showcase the collective design work of the learners, educators, and other collaborators in the process, and help advocate for the design improvements for the park. The project aims to form a creatively-empowered group of park users that can shape the park’s future for years to come.
*We are looking for people of all ages and diverse backgrounds who use and live nearby the park. English-language proficiency is not required; a multilingual environment is desired.
