The Ecology Center’s First Annual Fall Social
September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$75
Join us for our first Fall Social on Friday, September 28, 2018 at 7pm, Project Farmhouse, for the premiere of our video and annual report. We will also celebrate 20 years as stewards of the East River Park and profile our Artist-in-Residence Program, based at the E-waste Warehouse. There will be a special silent auction with creations by our artists in the program of repurposed electronic waste.
The LES Ecology Center (Ecology Center) has been pioneering community-based models in urban sustainability since 1987. We provide unique e-waste and composting services, environmental stewardship opportunities, and educational programming to all New Yorkers who want to learn about environmental issues and take responsibility for creating solutions through action.
Special Program Profile: The Artist-in-Residence at the E-Waste Warehouse is a self-directed residency program designed to support local artists, exhibit creative reuse, and bring public awareness to electronic waste. Each year, two to six artists are chosen to use a section of the warehouse as studio space and are given free access to electronic waste materials. Their work highlights alternative uses for items that would otherwise be considered garbage and keeps the material from entering the waste stream. Artists are selected based on their proposed project’s use of recycled items and ways their work can engage the public.
