Museums | Visit Historic 1885 Ship, NYC History Exhibition, and More (in-person)

Gaze up at the towering masts and miles of rigging and down into the vast cargo storage area. Take a peek at the galley and at the crew's quarters, a bunk room where twenty sailors tried to stay warm and dry in the worst weather. Climb up onto the quarterdeck and pose for a photo at the ship's wheel, and enjoy the view as you look out across New York Harbor and see the Brooklyn Bridge and Brooklyn Heights. Bowne & Co. will also host printing demonstrations using a variety of presses from the 19th century. Items printed throughout the day will be given away as tangible reminders of the experience. In addition, there will be a exhibition of historic photographs, prints, lithographs, and paintings. Face covering is required.

Concert | Sea Chanteys and Maritime Music From the Deck of 1885 Ship (virtual)

Sound familiar? How did they keep their spirits up? Singing together! Work songs and fun songs, story songs and nonsense songs, songs of nostalgia and songs of up-to-the-moment news - all were part of the repertoire onboard. Members of the New York Packet and friends perform from atop the foredeck of Wavertree ship.

Book Discussion | Feminicide and Global Accumulation: Frontline Struggles to Resist the Violence of Patriarchy and Capitalism


This book brings us to the frontlines of an international movement of Black, Indigenous, popular, and mestiza women's organizations fighting against violence--interpersonal, state sanctioned, and economic--that is both endemic to the global economy and the contemporary devalued status of racialized women, trans, and gender non-conforming communties in the Global South. Silvia Federici, Susana Draper, Liz Mason-Deese, and Otra Negras discuss how these struggles against racism, capitalism, and patriarchy show how crucially linked the land, water, and resource extraction projects crisscrossing the planet are to devaluing labor and nature and how central Black and Indigenous women and trans leadership is to resisting them.

Opera | Dido and Aeneas


Dido and Aeneas is an opera in a prologue and three acts, written by the English Baroque composer Henry Purcell with a libretto by Nahum Tate. The dates of the composition and first performance of the opera are uncertain. It was composed no later than July 1688, and had been performed at Josias Priest's girls' school in London by the end of 1689. The story is based on Book IV of Virgil's Aeneid. It recounts the love of Dido, Queen of Carthage, for the Trojan hero Aeneas, and her despair when he abandons her. A monumental work in Baroque opera, Dido and Aeneas is remembered as one of Purcell's foremost theatrical works. It was also Purcell's only true opera, as well as his only all-sung dramatic work.
