What’s a Destination Dot?

This is:

img_1906This dot was responding to the prompt, “show your vision for the future of Red Hook.”  Like all Destination Dots, it asked someone from Red Hook to tell their story.  The someone who shared her vision and artwork above is La’Sean Brooks, one of the great interns at DTE.   This is what she had to say about her dot:

My dot was inspired by the things I’m interested in that I’m sure others would be interested in, also.  Like music- who doesn’t enjoy a good concert? Especially on a warm summer evening.  Peace is something that should go on all around the world, and flowers always seem to cheer people up when they’re feeling down, so that inspired my flower and peace symbol. It’s sometimes the little things you do that impact a lot- that’s where my little “If you do only one thing…” clip came in. Of course I couldn’t forget the neighborhood that my vision was being created for:  Red Hook, Brooklyn.

In the weeks leading up to this year’s Red Hook Festival (theme:  “Destination Red Hook:  We Got What You Need”- it’s all coming together, no?) Destination Dots will start to pop up throughout the neighborhood.  Anywhere you see a dot, you’ll know you can go inside to get your own blank Destination Dot.  It’ll have its own prompt and its own rules- if you fill it out and hand it back in you  put yourself in the running for one of many great prizes offered by our partners in the neighborhood.   More than that, though, you tell your story, for all to see and share, just like La’Sean has done so nicely here.
