Conference |
The past decade has seen a rise of openly racist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, homophobic, and misogynistic groups both in the United States and around the world. The goal of this conference is to map various domestic and foreign iterations of the current far-right, racist, and/or antisemitic ethos, to explore the ideologies and ideas of these groups, to consider their commonalities, as well as their divergencies and tensions.

What is kayak polo? It’s a mix of basketball, water polo, and kayaking and a whole lot of fun. They've got the equipment (kayaks, vests, helmets, paddles), you bring the body, enthusiasm, and sportsmanship (shorts/sandals, too). Your level of experience doesn’t matter. They are limited to 15 participants per game, so reserve your spot for the game at 11 am. They’ll put you in a team and give you a vest number on a first-come first-served basis. Dedicated players and volunteers, though, will end up being teachers to others. They focus on individual attention and kayak mentoring, and offer the best free kayak learning experience you can get in NYC. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before game time to be donned with vest, helmet, paddle, and kayak.  Sundays, June 4 - September 24, 2017

Brave New World Repertory Theatre presents The Plantation, set in 1870 Virginia after emancipation, but before the onset of Jim Crow. The Plantation re-imagines The Cherry Orchard to tell a post-Civil War story about tectonic shifts in social status of black and white Americans during the period after the war when Southern aristocracy was brought to its knees. Chekhov’s Russian serfs become American freed men and women in this immersive and emotionally charged production.

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.

Known as America's first suburb, Brooklyn Heights is truly a gem.

These quaint, tree-lined streets have been the sites of Revolutionary War battles, abolitionist activism and have inspired numerous novelists. Visit a stop on the Underground Railroad, or the home of Truman Capote, where he penned Breakfast at Tiffany's and where Jackie Robinson signed with the Dodgers.

This two-and-a-half-hour long tour of Williamsburg highlights two main themes: Gentrification and Environmental Justice. Williamsburg offers an extreme example of both of these broader themes, and thus makes a very interesting case-study neighborhood in which to delve into these issues. The roots of gentrification and the detailed history of the cause of such rapid change will be covered in depth. This tour gives participants detailed information that will enable them to understand the topic of gentrification, why it is happening, its history, who benefits, and what is driving it. The same is true of the backstory of the environmental justice movement in the area.

The hypnagogic light experience with Lucia N°03 is a modern form of temple sleep that invites one to linger in the carefree perfection of the eternal Now. When we exhaust ourselves through busy lifestyles, sometimes the best solution is to live in the moment and let go. Lucia N°03, is a neuro-stimulator which combines a stroboscope (flickering light) with a constant light operating in different frequencies and programs. As a traveler sits with closed eyes white light activates different areas of the brain and allows for immersion into an alternate state of consciousness. Research has shown Lucia No. 3 stimulates harmonic EEG brain wave patterns (these brain patterns usually only emerge after decades of meditation practice and allows for a transcendental experiences). This experiential workshop includes a demo and Q+A with Dr. Dirk Proeckl, co-Inventor of Lucia N°03 revolutionary light technology, with Dr. Marina Masic (Founder of Lumina NY) and features Hypnagogic Light demonstrations and special Sound Healing collaboration by Basia. Note: Due to stroboscopic nature, Lucia No.3 is not recommended for those with light-sensitive epilepsy For demos, there will be very limited slots to try light therapy machine.

Opening Reception |
Fashion during the 2000s could be described as a period of hybrid subcultural styles remixing former selves, championing the principle of individual expression. The decade also saw the industry of fast-fashion massively expand its market, proliferating the presence of smart-casual wear. As such, fashion during this time embodied the conflicting roles of both globalization and homogeneity alongside pastiche and pluralism. However, what makes fashion from the aughts so debatable to define is its proximity to the present. It is only through the machine of history that fashion finds its protagonists. How to define a recent history of fashion? In an effort to obstruct our tendency to assign a specific style to a decade, The Overworked Body: An Anthology of 2000s Dress surveys the iconoclastic to the underground, the everyday to the critical, and presents a period in fashion that is overloaded and overworked.

The skeletal remains of the High Line’s elevated tracks set the perfect scene for a spooky evening. Join Free Tours by Foot for a journey to the creepier side of New York City’s most unique park. On this tour you’ll hear tales of the strange eccentric who lived below the tracks and saved them from demise, the curse of a West Side Cowboy who fell to his death from the elevated track, and the children who haunt the street formerly known as Death Avenue. If the moon hangs right perhaps you’ll witness the spectacle of a ghostly ship floating down the Hudson River; is it the long forgotten crew of Henry Hudson’s Half-Moon warning sailors not to go to sea? Or is it Captain Kidd protecting the treasure he buried on Liberty Island? Venture at your own risk through the dark side of High Line.
