Community Youth Skillshare

February 18, 2017, 2:00 pm-6:00 pm

Hosted by Arts in Bushwick at The Silent Barn

Artists, makers, builders, performers are all welcome to come share their skills with the youth of Bushwick at this new event.

This monthly program seeks to establish a dialogue between Bushwick’s youth and the many talented artists and makers who live here.

On one Saturday every month from February to May, Arts in Bushwick will host and develop new youth programming in visual arts, music making, and dance that are accessible, free and provide a meal option for participating kids.

In June, when we will host Community Day, we hope to showcase the projects developed through the spring.

Community Youth Skillshare is a program developed in partnership with Educated Little Monsters and generously hosted by Silent Barn.

Please fill out this form to sign up to volunteer to share your skills.

This month’s skillshares include:

Zine Making & DIY Publishing

Do you like to write, draw or both? Have you always wanted to make your own zine, blog or other DIY publication? At this workshop we’ll talk about independent/alternative publishing both online and in print. Discuss how text and media can be used to make your voice heard and connect with your community.

(This workshop can be adapted for any age range)
