Workshop: [Re]newal in Your Hand: Anti-Gentrification

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Artists have acquired a reputation for being heralds of gentrification, but at this workshop, we will create arts-based toolkits to fight gentrification and address community needs.

ARTs East New York will present a process-based toolkit that uses art and urban planning as a catalyst to fight intentional destabilization of existing communities for the financial gains of “Urban Renewal.” The session will begin by exploring themes of power and unpacking the preconceived gentrification process. Then, inspired by ARTs East New York's [re]New Lots: Artists Incubator & Vendor Market, participants will co-create a toolkit to fight specific effects of gentrification, position community members as cultivators of the local economy, and create a resident-led vision for the future of the neighborhood.
