In this discussion we will focus on art projects that although they seem very different, all have in common the idea of sharing of art to create a fabric of relationships within the neighborhood. Through these projects we will consider the benefits of collaboration instead of competition, collectivizing resources, and self-organizing. We will also discus the complexity and contradictions of making art common in the culturally diverse neighborhood of Jackson Heights, Queens.
Participating Guests include: Nicholas Sharma of STooPS! BedStuy, Petrushka Bazin Larsen of The Laundromat Project, and Jackson Heightsian Gonzalo Casals of Friends of the Highline
