GREENSPACENYC is a non-profit collaborative that develops and curates free educational programming, hands-on workshops, and public design projects that encourage dialogue, enliven public spaces, and promote the future of a more equitable and sustainable city.
Activities take place at public parks, sidewalks, plazas, vacant lots, community gardens, hacker spaces, cultural institutions, and local businesses. Each project is created in collaboration with organizers, artists, educators, designers, activists, technologists, entrepreneurs, community groups, and the general public. The organization is fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas, giving it its status as a 501(c)(3) and receives material sponsorship from Material for the Arts (NYC Office of Cultural Affairs).
CIVIC ART LAB
Civic Art Lab will be a summer-long storefront in Bed-
Stuy, Brooklyn in collaboration with the Bridge Street
Development Corporation’s Pop-up Program. This
environmental, arts, and educational initiative calls on
citizens to co-produce creative and open ways to share
skills and showcase recent cultural and environmental
initiatives happening locally in order to amplify the diverse voices and encourage future community engagement.
Support the Civic Art Lab!
