Art Talks Brooklyn with Brooklyn Arts Council, LaunchPad and Shoestring Press @ The Way Station
Jul 22, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
A new speaker series highlighting Brooklyn Arts initiatives and programs. Monthly, we will invite three speakers, each allotted 15 minutes, to share how they are impacting our community through the arts.
Shoe String Press- Lane Sell, Crown Heights
Founded in 2011, Shoestring Press serves artists in Crown Heights with work space, technical expertise, gallery exhibitions, critical engagement, and intellectual community. We’ve built a community of 25 working member artists and wider range of performers, workshop participants, exhibitors, and friends on the premise proving that making art should be an open process, one that is visible to the community and affordable to anyone who wants to participate in visual culture.
LaunchPad- Zane Van Dusen, Crown Heights
LaunchPad is a grassroots, free-form gathering space in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Focusing on the arts and community building, LaunchPad encourages people to get together, exchange ideas and collaborate on projects. We support and assist artists in diverse mediums while facilitating local neighborhood revitalization efforts. Programs and offerings are open to the public, and admission is always a suggested donation. LaunchPad provides a uniquely animated hub where neighbors can actively engage with art while interacting with the community.
