Community Partners Cocktails & Conversation

purpleNext Thursday at Dance Theatre Etcetera we’ll be meeting with community partners to discuss some of the issues facing Red Hook.  From development at Piers 11 & 7 to issues facing local youth, the evening will be a chance to find out what’s going on in the neighborhood and to share your thoughts.

We’ll also have a performance by the wonderfully talented Joseph Webb & friends, and we’ll discuss some ideas for community collaborations on the upcoming (June 6) Red Hook Waterfront Arts Festival.
Here are the details:

480 Van Brunt Street (just past the entrance to the Fairway supermarket, door to the right after the security guard booth- ring buzzer 3.)

RSVP:  jon@dtetc.org or (718) 643-6790

Price:  FREE
