The Liberation Series is a year-long effort to uplift Bed-Stuy’s thriving past and present in partnership with local stakeholders, organizations, and businesses in the neighborhood today.
By bringing historic places into conversation with today’s artists and community leaders, this series will continue to explore the central role of Bed-Stuy in shaping Black art, culture, and community in New York City.
May’s Liberation Series centers Rest & Restoration, Senior Awareness, and AAPI Heritage Month. Like all Liberation Series events, each event in the series embodies one of The LP’s three themes: Make Art, Build Community & Create Change.
Build Community | TGIF! On the Final Friday of each month, The LP will host a casual meetup where attendees are invited to connect with their neighbors and talk the night away over snacks, drinks, and communal artistry. This May, the LP’s storefront will feature a Zine-making station where participants can contribute to a short homemade magazine illustrating the legacy of Black and Asian elders in NYC through the lens of labor, immigration, and placemaking. The Zine station will be led by artist and LP fellow Gloria Lau and community member Daphne Lundi. All materials will be provided by The LP.
