With Amant, Bushwick Brooklyn Public Library, Eyebeam, International Studio & Curatorial Program, St. Nicks Alliance & Wendy's Subway
We are so delighted to come together with many of our neighbors to debut a new joint initiative by Amant, the Bushwick Brooklyn Public Library, Eyebeam, International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP), St. Nick’s Alliance, and Wendy’s Subway to further neighborhood relations, share information, and bring attention to the cultural offerings of the area.
The North Brooklyn Cultural Syndicate invites visitors for a fun neighborhood crawl! We’ll be debuting are special Neighborhood Maps at any of the above organizations so that you can follow along for a glorious Spring walk from one location to the next to join tours, visit exhibitions, and meet artists and organizers. All participants with public programs will be open during the same time, hosting in-person events. All events are free.
Here at UNDO, you will have a chance to view some films on-site produced with artists here at UnionDocs, engage with staff members available holding office hours to chat about our work, and explore all that’s on offer on our MEMBERSHIP CHANNEL with a chance to join at a one-time-only discount!
Amant is a non-profit arts organization in Brooklyn, NY, founded in 2019. We are a non-collecting learning institution, which gives us the freedom to focus on experimentation, process, and dialogue through exhibitions, public programs, and artist residencies. Our main method of engagement with our collaborators, colleagues, and audiences is through learning, an ongoing process that depends on awareness, attention, curiosity, and a realization that knowledge comes in multiple forms, languages, and experiences. We are committed to building cultural partnerships, in the U.S. and abroad, while activating new and ongoing conversations with our local communities.
Wendy’s Subway is a reading room, writing space, and independent publisher in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We support emerging artists and writers in making experimental, urgent work and create alternative modes for learning and thinking in community. Wendy’s Subway is dedicated to encouraging creative, critical, and discursive engagement with arts and literature. We prioritize collaboration and horizontal decision-making in our work towards being a responsive and sustainable organization.
