“Bushwick Love Letter” at Mayday Festival of Resistance
Saturday, April 28, 2:00-7:00pm
Maria Hernandez Park, Kinckerbocker Ave & Starr St

Music! Food! Dancing!
Connecting with movement groups!

The Five Boro Story Project is excited to be part of Mayday Space‘s third annual MayDay Festival of Resistance, a free outdoor concert in Maria Hernandez Park.

Stop by our “Bushwick Love Letter” station to write a love note to Bushwick, record your neighborhood memories, share your hopes and concerns for the neighborhood, and swap stories with neighbors! The community’s love notes, drawings, and other writing will be displayed in the park during the festival, composing an interactive ode to Bushwick.

The Festival of Resistance is a free concert and party that uplifts the global tradition of popular protest and community resilience of May Day / International Worker’s Day. This year’s concert lineup is a powerhouse of Women of Color-led bands and artist/activists using music to spread messages of hope and resistance:
* Nitty Scott
* M.A.K.U Sound System
* Bushwick Jarocho Collective

Plus enjoy the musical stylings of DJ Sabine Blaizin, and kid-friendly art making activities, face painting, and a photo booth!


DIRECTIONS: Maria Hernandez Park stretches from Knickerbocker Avenue to Irving Avenue, and Starr Street to Suydam Street. It’s a block from the L train at Jefferson Street, and near the M train at Central Avenue.

In case of rain, the concert will be held inside Mayday Space nearby (170 St Nicholas Avenue, a short walk from Maria Hernandez Park).
