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.

Whether speculating on our own current political climates or those of imagined civilizations, authors of science fiction and fantasy are uniquely positioned to deconstruct structures of political power. Politically engaged science fiction considers how power struggles impact individual and collective identity, proposes intersections between technology and politics, and explores methods of resistance to oppressive governments and political technologies like surveillance and biometrics. N. K. Jemisin (The Fifth Season), Eugene Lim (Dear Cyborgs), Malka Older (Infomocracy), Deji Bryce Olukotun (Nigerians in Space), and moderator Rosie Clarke will consider how SF&F responds to both our hopes and fears for the future, offers alternatives to conventional political structures, and the ways technology can liberate or threaten our freedom.

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.

These quaint, tree-lined streets have been the sites of Revolutionary War battles, abolitionist activism and have inspired numerous novelists.

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.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Participate in a conversation between Nancy Maclean, author of the new book Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America. Democracy in Chains blows open the doors to the unknown history of the relentless campaign by the radical rich to eliminate unions, suppress voting, privatize everything from schools to Medicare and Social Security, and change the Constitution. MacLean traces this game plan back to one man, the Nobel Prize-winning political economist James McGill Buchanan, who forged his ideas in an attempt to preserve the white elite’s power in the wake of Brown v. Board of Education. The book also tells the story of the Koch brothers, following how their fortune has shaped the contemporary American right-wing. Maclean's book has drawn both high praise and deep criticism from a vareity of writers and thinkers from across the ideologial spectrum. Despite the immense controversy, the book is well on its way to becoming a center piece for our understanding of contemporary American political life.

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Dec. 12, 2017.

Brazil has rescued over 50,000 people submitted to contemporary forms of slavery since 1995, when the government recognized before the United Nations that slavery persisted in the country. Journalist Leonardo Sakamoto has worked for two decades investigating slave labor cases and how global production networks benefit from it. He has received multiple threats from people and companies involved in these practices.  Sakamoto will discuss how slave labor is structured and who profits from it in Brazil. He will also address how conservative sectors have been working against the system designed to combat these crimes. The discussion will be framed around the attack on social, environmental and labor rights currently taking place not only in Brazil but on a global scale.

Nobel Laureate Sir Angus Deaton and fellow Princeton economist Anne Case’s recent work, Mortality and Morbidity in the 21st Century, identifies a shocking trend known as “deaths of despair.” While racial minorities in the U.S. have seen improvements in lifespan over the last two decades, more white middle-aged Americans have been dying younger, especially those with a high school education or less. Widespread addiction, suicide, alcoholic liver disease and heart disease, coupled with stagnant economic opportunities, have meant shorter lives characterized by pain and anguish.

A lone merchant, Anna Fierling, (played here by three actors) tries to achieve the irreconcilable aims of making money and keeping her children alive during the nightmare of the Thirty Years War. Bertolt Brecht's masterpiece of silence and survival seems only to have grown in stature since its premiere in 1941 as we consider the recent ravages of wars still plaguing the planet. This version by David Hare first premiered at The National Theatre in London in 1995. It features new original music composed for this student production by Matthew Dean Marsh.

On September 26, 1957, West Side Story opened at the glamorous Winter Garden Theatre in midtown Manhattan, but the true setting of this innovative musical masterpiece was the gritty streets and blue collar housing projects of the upper west side. Maria and Tony’s tragic romance unfolded where Lincoln Center and the library now stand. For this special program, West Side Story comes home – back to the neighborhood of the story’s setting; back to the archival home of Jerome Robbins and Harold Prince; back to its moments of creation, through the memories of original cast members and special guests. Lend your voice to the 60th anniversary celebration of West Side Story, where you'll see rare documents from the show’s creators, share a conversation with West Side Story veterans, and sing along to live performances of the show’s most beloved numbers.

Sit in the center of your life with the confidence that you can handle whatever comes up. Learning mindfulness, the practice of paying attention in the present moment without resistance or judgment can shift the course of our lives. Instead of being pushed around by our fears and hopes, we have the space to listen to ourselves and others, to pause, catch our breath, and respond to events wisely, rather than react automatically.

We hear about new environmentally responsible practices and clean tech all the time, so why aren’t we seeing sweeping results? The problem isn’t lack of technologies or policy solutions; it's apathy at both personal and corporate levels. To achieve real progress, we need to design for factors like urgency, empowerment, self-interest, and intuitiveness of action. In other words, for people knowing: - Delaying is as catastrophic as doing nothing - I can have real impact (not a drop in a bucket) - Acting now benefits me personally - I have a list of things I can easily do today Discuss how you can create real behavior change across consumers at scale to support environmentally responsible practices, policies, and products.

The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Nebojsa Nakicenovic, Deputy Director General of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, will discuss how to finance the pathway to global sustainability. As an international leader on economic development in response to climate change, Nakicenovic contributed to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), authored over 300 scientific publications, and has degrees from Princeton University, the University of Vienna, and the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Artist Toni Dove’s work has been engaged in exploring embodied interface to control responsive media, creating immersive narrative experiences. Haunting the Movie will cover a number of her projects that occupy a space at the intersection between cinema, performance and virtual reality. Toni Dove lives and works in New York. Since the early 1990s, she has produced unique and highly imaginative embodied hybrids of film, performance and virtual reality. In her work, performers and participants interact with an unfolding narrative, using interface technologies such as motion sensing to “perform” on-screen avatars.

Opening Reception |
At a time of uncertainty such as now, what are the ways artists can employ their craft to express their concerns? What is on your mind at this time? With a world filled with conflict, war, poverty, climate change and xenophobia, how does this generation cope with these conditions at large? Some artists rely on traditional genres that they update to incorporate generational additions, while others seek novel means of expression to organize their mindsets. This exhibition brings together a group of diverse artists whose work reflects such concerns. The group has participants from the United States, Macau, Mexico, Japan, Mainland China and Saudi Arabia. Using diverse materials such as painting, an installation employing carpets and toy soldiers, ceramics, cardboard boxes and ready-made popular culture objects, this group of young artists invests their thoughts in ways that describe individual identity while at the same time engage with the cultural world at large. Artists in the exhibition include Wai Man Chan, Dakin Platt, Edgar Alan Rodriguez Castillo, Alizé Santana, Masamitsu Shigeta and Li Zeng (pictured).

Lecture |
The relationship between knowledge and visual forms has changed as tools and platforms used for data display, discovery, and modeling have become ubiquitous. These practices raise basic questions about the nature of visual epistemology—whether it is a primary, secondary, or tertiary form of knowledge. This talk addresses some of the ways these practices and the assumptions on which they are based raise concerns for work in the humanities, broadly considered. Current projects in computational and digital scholarship form one set of focus points for this talk, but the argument stresses conceptual continuities between analog and digital practices in order to call attention to the particular features of computational work in information visualization. At stake are questions of cultural authority and the politics of representation as well as issues in the status of visuality as they relate to future research. With: Johanna Drucker

Join a three hour journey through some of New York City's most historic areas. Begin in Greenwich Village, one of the cultural centers of America.

Many people think of the New York City subway as one of the largest, most efficient, if not the cleanest mass transit systems in the world. Few, however, think of it as the largest and longest art gallery on the planet. Well, they don't know what they are missing. This lively walking AND subway riding tour visits over a dozen subway stations to experience a selection of these striking often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public. Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly.

Po Kim was among the first generation of Korean artists who immigrated to the United States in the 1950s. Instead of committing to any one school, Kim continuously explored various styles and forms, from Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s, to a hyper-realistic idiom in the 1970s, to figurative and allegorical works in the 1990s and 2000s. Po Kim’s diverse body of work oscillates between an expressive release of trauma and a yearning for an Arcadian escape, echoing a trajectory of extraordinary events throughout his life. As the first exhibition in our Master Series, Po Kim: In Search of Arcadia presents a selection of works from Kim’s early period in New York within the context of drawings and large-scale paintings from his subsequent stylistic transformations, revealing a progressive journey towards the idyllic safe haven he created in his art and in New York. Kim’s works have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the U.S., Europe, and Korea and are held in important public collections including The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Chicago Art Institute, National Museum of Contemporary Art in Korea, and the Seoul Art Center.

Lecture |
This talk will be based on a work-in-progress for the European Research Council research project “Bodies Across Borders: Oral and visual memory in Europe and beyond”, and more specifically on Luisa Passerini's interviews with various visual artists, including video-artist Ursula Biemann and photographer Eva Leitolf. Both artists have worked on migration, documenting the problems of external and internal borders of Europe (images of their work will be shown). In interviewing the artists, Passerini was especially interested in the methodology they follow and the preliminary research they lead before creating their videos or photographs. Many similarities emerged between the research procedures they follow and those of the cultural and oral history of migration, particularly when these include visual memory. However, differences of great relevance also became evident, for instance on the attitude towards subjectivity and intersubjectivity, as well as for what concerns the relationship with the audience and the format of the results.

It is easy to forget that you are in a crowded city while walking through this spectacular park! The original plan for the City of New York, laid out by the City Commissioners in 1811 did not include the park. But as the city grew rapidly in size, we needed a place for New Yorkers to get a breath of fresh air! Central Park, with its 843 acres of meadows, lawns, ponds, lakes and more, was the solution. Today it is one of the best-known parks in the world and is enjoyed by millions-both locals and tourists alike.

A brown bag discussion with Jina Moore, East Africa Bureau Chief for The New York Times. Moore has been reporting on human rights, global health, and transitional justice in Africa for nearly a decade. In country after country and crisis after crisis, Moore has seen how international institutions overlook look expertise and sideline local actors. She’s turned to those same local actors as experts to produce ground-breaking and award-winning work. Moore will share examples from her fieldwork of the bias often embedded in international institutions -- and the very real consequences that myopia has often wrought.

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.

Rockefeller Center is one of the most popular public spaces and tourist attractions in New York City. This depression-era commercial complex takes up over three full city blocks and is rich with history, public art, and art-deco architecture. Built by business mogul John D. Rockefeller Jr. with his own money, he instructed his team of designers and architects to build the most beautiful commercial complex of it’s kind in the world. That vision resulted in what is still one of NYC’s greatest treasures and gave rise to some of NYC’s favorite traditions including the Radio City Christmas Spectacular featuring the famous dance team the Rockettes and the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.

A History of Infamy explores the broken nexus between crime, justice, and truth in mid-twentieth-century Mexico. Faced with the violence and impunity that defined politics, policing, and the judicial system in post-revolutionary times, Mexicans sought truth and justice outside state institutions. During this period, criminal news and crime fiction flourished. Civil society’s search for truth and justice led, paradoxically, to the normalization of extrajudicial violence and neglect of the rights of victims. Refreshments and appetizers to follow.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Poetry Reading |
Poets from all corners of the earth have had something to teach us about the life and death of languages. As Carl Sandburg puts it, “words wrapped around your tongue today and broken to the shape of thought now and today…shall be faded hieroglyphics.” Will the plurality of poetic speech and the diversity of human languages be faded likewise and become obsolete in the not so distant future? If poetry, as language that lends itself to memorization and recitation, arises from the lived worlds of song and ritual incantation, what would happen to human societies when we could no longer sing the song or form emotional attachment to the rich traditions embodied by the plurality of poetic speech around the world? The presentation will include readings by Bei Dao, Mohammed Bennis, Nabaneeta Dev Sen, Sharmistha Mohanty, Daouda Ndiaye, Anne Waldman, Orlando White, Zhai Yongming, and Raúl Zurita
