“This month we took a leap from idea to action. After a year of  talking with people in various communities about the possibility of creating an “art commons”, we decided to start a few pilot programs in various neighborhoods in NYC and see how it goes. First stop Jackson Heights!” -Art & The Commons (affinity group)

Learn more about the artCommons project this Saturday July 27th (10am-1pm) at Espresso 77 in Jackson Heights.

*A commons is a resource that is organized and shared by individuals. Art & The Commons is part of coalition of individuals and affinity groups that are investigating ways in which art, culture, and art education can be understood and developed as a commons. Commoning also serves as a guard against private enclosures. more info: artandthecommons.org
