Civic Art Lab | Community Mapping
July 8, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm$10
This workshop is hosted by designer and educator Andrew DeRosa (Queens College). Participants will work together mapping basic personal behaviors and interactions that occur at different times and places in the city. You will be led through a step-by-step process of gathering and visualizing data. Using basic materials, the workshop will culminate in the collaborative creation of a large map that will visualize the diverse lives of participants and give insights into our behaviors together as New Yorkers.
Civic Art Lab 2017 is the third iteration of the project, designed as a pop-up gallery and workshop space in the East Village at Avenue C & 7th Street. The lab will be hosted in partnership with Marc Norov and the Creations Gallery, a mixed-use community pop-up space, adjacent to a community-based bike repair shop. Our programming will continue to be low cost for full registrants and free for individual registrants. These workshops, talks, and exhibitions are designed by volunteer artists, designers, and teachers who lead investigations into diverse themes such as: creative re-use; urban agriculture; sustainable architecture; health & well-being, and environmental justice, to name a few.
