Being Neighborly

Join us on the third Thursday of every month for Being Neighborly, a project led by artist and curator Francis Palazzolo.

During this project Palazzolo engages local artists who confront marginalization and stigmatization on a daily basis around the concept of “Being Neighborly.” This project brings diverse people together to learn from each other through the process of organizing art. Two Brooklyn based non-profits, the Baltic Street Resource and Wellness Center and the Open Source Gallery support the effort by donating studio space, art supplies and a place to exhibit art. The goal is for participants to gain agency, voice and information in their neighborhoods. Hence, local artists reach-out and organize their neighbors; together they connect through art at these locations on Thursdays & Saturdays.

Collaborators in this project include artists and curators affected by the collapse of the Healing Arts Initiative (HAI) Studio & Gallery earlier this year. A testament to the power of community and art, the group is reorganizing, moving forward and bringing their talents and perspective to South Slope to generate conversation about art-making. Materials such as paper, pencils, sharpeners and erasers are provided.
