The New Museum: IDEAS CITY

June 2, 2015

Our collaboration with 596 Acres What do we do with our land? was included in the New Museum’s IDEAS CITY Festival on Saturday, May 30, 2015. Visitors were given an annotated map of the Lower East Side and the Bowery and encouraged to partake in a set of self-guided audio tours, which tell stories of community organizing and activism. Four sites were featured as case studies: Elizabeth Street Garden, El Jardin del Paraiso, Siempre Verde Community Garden, and the Cooper Square Committee.
