Photos from StreetFest

What an amazing day! Thank you everyone who participated, talked with me and/or stopped by to say hi!

Almost 50 modules were built and distributed, and I met people from around the world who were interested in the project.

For those of you with modules, make sure you are watering them regularly during this sunny week ahead, and upload your photos to the flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1686377@N21/ I can’t wait to see all the new homes. Also, if you didn’t get a flag, I will be in touch when new flags are printed and delivered…

May 7th, 2011: Festival of Ideas for a New City | StreetFest

Let’s get dirty!

Come out to the Festival of Ideas StreetFest on May 7th, and build your own green roof module to take home (you’ll get a flag too!)

This amazing new take on a street fair will be full of interesting & participatory projects, great events and super delish food. (Hello ScratchBread!)

Here’s the basic gist:

The Festival of Ideas for the New City, May 4-8, 2011, is a major new collaborative initiative in New York involving scores of Downtown organizations, from universities to arts institutions and community groups, working together to effect change. A first for New York, the Festival will harness the power of the creative community to imagine the future city and explore the ideas destined to shape it. It will take place in multiple venues Downtown and is organized around three central programs: a conference of symposia; an innovative StreetFest along the Bowery; and over one hundred independent projects and public events. The Festival will serve as a platform for artists, writers, architects, engineers, designers, urban farmers, planners, and thought leaders to exchange ideas, propose solutions, and invite the public to participate.

Washington, D.C. Sustainability Lab & Installation

This Thursday I’m heading down to D.C. to participate in a panel discussion on sustainable cultural production. I will also be installing the first outside of NYC module – awesome!

A big thanks to Jeff Hnilicka, Transformer Gallery and Fathom Creative for making this all happen. Here’s a rundown of the weekend ahead:

Framework Panel #13:
BUILT TO LAST? – truths & myths of sustainable cultural production
June 3, 2010, 6:30 – 8pm

Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
1779 Massachusetts Avenue NW
In the Choate Room on the 1st floor

Presented in tandem with Sustainability Lab & Cornfield, this panel will look back and look ahead at the ever-evolving Do-It-Yourself ethic and inherent aesthetics as it relates to cultural production. Timed with the 30th anniversary of Washington DC’s Dischord Records – an internationally recognized independent record label supporting punk rock music that has been artist run since its inception – this panel will examine the DIY organizing model that grew out of punk rock subculture and is tied to punk ideology and anti-consumerism. How is DIY being redefined as aspects of that culture shift from being an underground mantra to a cable TV station slogan and Urban Outfitters commodity? What can cultural producers learn from sustainable food producers? How can a volunteer-run operation be sustainable?

Panelists: Nancy Bannon, artist, DC & NYC; Bryce Dwyer, InCUBATE, Chicago; Ian MacKaye, co-founder of Dischord Records, DC; Eve Mosher, Seeding the City, NYC; Abigail Satinsky, InCUBATE, Chicago

Moderator: Jeff Hnilicka, cultural worker, Member of Hit Factorie and organizer of FEAST, Brooklyn
