From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick. Tour takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

3pm-4pm “Critical Fictions: Dystopian and Utopian Narratives of the City” with Marcus Wilford (Architect & Designer)Inspired by Italo Calvino's novel "Invisible Cities", Critical Fictions presents speculative projects with various narratives inspired by distopian and utopian scenarios that are based on real world conditions including economic inequality, rapid urbanization, war, ecological sustainability, capitalism and communism. 4pm-5pm “Reimagining Citizenship: Challenging Traditional Notions of Citizenship through Counter-narratives” with Katherine Fisher (Designer, Studio Basis) and Valentina Branada (The New School).With the vibrant political landscape today, new civic actions have become more visible and are mobilizing the entire world. This landscape reflects society’s need to be heard, for a diversity of voices to be accounted for, and highlights the problem of inequality in institutional politics and representation today. The workshop provides frameworks and creates an environment for individual voices to surface, to investigate diverse perspectives, and create media artifacts that question the status quo of ownership in narratives to generate a shared sense of purpose.

Long-awaited NYC return of Colombia’s Latin-Grammy Queen of cumbia, chadé, bullerengue, mapalé & porro with NYC’s first all-female mariachi bandSonia Bazanta Vides, well known by her lavish stage name, Totó La Momposina, has spent her life cheerfully spreading the native music of Colombia’s Caribbean coastline. She was raised on an island off the coast, called Mompox (this is where she derived the “Momposina” of her moniker). A place where African, Indigenous Indian and Spanish cultures mingle, the resulting musical potpourri there is resplendently diverse, and has informed Vides’ vast work (herself of Afro-Colombian and Indigenous descent). Latin Grammy nominees Mariachi Flor de Toloache make New York City history as its’ first and only all-women mariachi group. Founded in 2008, Mariachi Flor de Toloache is led by singers Mireya I. Ramos (founder) and Shae Fiol (original member). Reminiscent of the early days of mariachi the group started as a trio with harp, violin and vihuela. Today, they perform as a full Mariachi ensemble. The members hail from diverse cultural backgrounds such as Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the U.S.
