If you love cheesy puns & local art, this is the event for you! (I kid- I love cheesy puns.)
The Red Hook Homes (formerly Red Hook Co-ops?) has opened its doors to 35 families, with an innovative model of affordable housing that will allow for 20 market rate units to be sold in the coming months.
A project of the Fifth Avenue Committee (FAC), it is the largest affordable homeownership opportunity in the history of Red Hook, according to Michelle de la Uz, the FAC’s executive director, who noted that it is also the single largest housing development project that the FAC has completed in its 32-year history.
Andrew Butler is a mulit-talented, wonderful artist who has taught in DTE’s in-school programs, is currently (2nd session today!) doing the In Transition Theater Workshop with local young people, and performed for some friends of DTE back in August at the Clover Club.
Tomorrow night, check out his one-man show (excerpts of which were performed at the Clover Club), Rags Parkland, at Ars Nova’s Ant Fest 2010.
“Here in Red Hook” is a photoblog run by South Brooklyn Community High School’s own Andy Vernon-Jones. It looks like the blog is coming to an end, but not before a final month of pictures.
A good post from Richard Kessler of the Huffington Post about arts, education, and the reality that there is no quick-fix for the problems in our educational system.
But, in many schools, particularly in big city schools that are low performing, subjects that make for an expanded curriculum rather than narrowed, like the arts and physical education, have been squeezed from the school day. The arts are starved for resources and diminished through policies that define an education as reading and math.
Check out the rest here on the Huffington Post.
If you’re a young person, age 15-21, we hope you’ll be at the first session of the In Transition Workshop this Saturday (info/applications available here).
Everyone else, though, check out the Harvest Fest down on the Added Value farm! 10am – 5pm, rain or shine. The day will include:
- [their] “pick your own” pumpkin patch — carve them right here or bring them home.
- Kids activities including live animals to pet, face painting, balloon hats, and a scavenger hunt.
- Live music and performances by Bomba Yo! The City Billies, Professor Louis, The Broken Arrowz, Rebel Diaz and more.
- Great Food provided by The Good Fork, iCi, Rice, Kevin’s and the Lobster Pound.
- A Farmers Market featuring locally grown produce and hand made products.
- Cooking demonstrations with local seasonal food.
Get the rest of the details here.
More to come throughout the day.
Hopefully seeing Angels & Accordions at Green-Wood Cemetery. Why?
Well, for one thing it’s going to be a beautiful day & maybe the last time all year you can see the breathtaking grounds of the Cemetery with such nice weather.
More than that, though- tomorrow is your last chance EVER to see this one-of-a-kind site-specific performance.
For the last seven years, DTE Executive Director Martha Bowers has directed the piece and produced it in collaboration with the Green-Wood Historic Fund. Part walking tour, part performance, part guided meditation through the beautiful and richly historical Green-Wood Cemetery, Angels and Accordions brings to life a Brooklyn treasure through dance, live music, and design.
Tickets are offered at a discount if purchased in advance, so head over to the DTE site and choose the performance time (12:30pm or 4pm) you’d like to attend.
A lot going on this week in the neighborhood. Here’s a mini-round-up of Red Hook news from the web:
- RHI’s Taste of Red Hook was this week, and NY 1 news was there.
- The 4th Annual Red Hook Film Festival lineup was announced.
- The City’s “Comprehensive Waterfront Plan” is open to public input, at an upcoming meeting (10/12) and on the web.
- The city may be testing out wind power in Red Hook?
- DTE’s Angels & Accordions is tomorrow (more on that later today)
