Public Faculty No. 9


Public Faculty No. 9: Conversations about Connection in Queens
May 14 – May 17, 2015

Beginning this past January, Five Boro Story Project Creator Bridget Bartolini has been participating in Public Faculty No. 9, a collective Queens learning experience led by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk under the auspices of the Queens Museum. A group of over 20 artists, educators, and organizers have met at monthly workshops to discuss what it means to truly connect in a place as diverse as Queens. Now we take these conversations to the street! For 4 days we will have public conversations and reflections, delving deep into questions of connection. We invite you to join the conversation and build connections in Elmhurst, Jackson Heights, Corona and Junction Blvd. Come and share your thoughts!
