April 27, 5:00–8:00pm EDT | Ibi Ibrahim

IN PERSON* at The LP, 1476 Fulton Street Brooklyn, NY 11216

Yemeni American artist Ibi Ibrahim is creating Reclaiming Realities, a photo and oral history project documenting the image and experiences of Yemeni Americans in their own environments. Ibrahim has been photographing and interviewing Yemeni bodega workers across New York City, creating space for each subject to tell their personal story of coming to America and reclaiming their own reality. Ibrahim is interested in the liminal space between homeland and al-gharb—the outer world. Reclaiming Realities explores themes of home, multi-national identity, and the enduring impact of political events such as the Yemen War and travel ban on both Yemenis and Yemeni Americans. Join us at The LP to meet Ibi, hear more about his work, and view select photographic works.

May 11, 6:30–7:45pm EDT | Jamel Burgess

VIRTUAL

Jamel Burgess and community members are producing Archiving East New York, an archive and accessible digital platform combining oral histories with multimedia elements to educate East New York residents and the general public about the Brooklyn neighborhood. The documentation and oral histories focus on Black and Brown residents from the community in the decades following the 1960s. The project emphasizes youth engagement by teaching about East New York, building community pride, and introducing youth to oral histories and community organizing. Archiving East New York explores the significance of representation to highlight counter narratives about communities of color in the neighborhood. Join us on Zoom to hear how Jamel is building his community archive. For those unable to join live, the session will be recorded.

Reflective Urbanisms: Mapping NY Chinatown is a storytelling project by Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong about Manhattan’s Chinatown community, as told through its built environment. The project maps Chinatown through changes the buildings and streets have undergone over time, and through community stories about the activities that took place there. The project consists of several connected components, including design and fabrication of a public seating installation where community story circles are held, and an interactive digital map and archive. Join Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong at her studio in DUMBO to learn more about her work!

IN PERSON* at The LP, 1476 Fulton Street Brooklyn, NY 11216

The Sankofa Residency is a multi-phase project rooted in the history of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, and an Afrofuturist imagining of Bed-Stuy moving forward. Inspired by the Ghanian concept of Sankofa—looking backward in order to move forward—artist Kendra J. Ross and community members are using research, oral history, and collaborative imagining to facilitate a plan for local residents, businesses, and stakeholders to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic in a place of healing, thriving, and progress. The project will culminate in a series of interdisciplinary, immersive dance experiences, taking place on site at local partnering businesses and organizations. Join Kendra at The LP to learn more about the project.
