Building Stories Open House

September 23, 2017, 6:00pm - September 23, 2017, 10:00pm

Open House! We invite you to visit Building Stories, your new neighborhood get-it-done art, culture & organizing workshop! In January, facing a 400% rent increase for our DUMBO studio, Great Small Works joined forces with some of our most inspiring friends to form Building Stories LLC. We work side-by-side and together in a post-industrial canal-side Gowanus wonderland, and it’s due time we opened our doors to you. We would love for you to come and see what we’re cooking up! We’ll have a grill running, drinks and snacks, info on our work, and some trinkets made by our hands to acquire by donation. Come explore the two levels of our new art-making home. Featuring the work and workspace of: Great Small Works: greatsmallworks.org/ Milk Not Jails: milknotjails.wordpress.com/ People’s Puppets of Occupy Wall Street: peoplespuppets.org/ Cale Layton Daniel Rosza Lang/Levitsky and Milo: Transexual Empress Leatherwork Raphael Mishler: raphaelmishler.carbonmade.com/ Jason Hicks and Semi-Upright Puppet Company Gretchen Hildebran: ghildebran.wordpress.com/ Rachel Schragis: www.rachelschragis.com/ The first level is fully accessible. Just up 9th Street from the F/G Smith & 9th Street station. Walking from the subway, turn left down a driveway just beyond the bridge. Walk all the way around to the far end of the back of the buildings. Limited parking at Building Stories; more parking across 9th Street in the Lowe's parking lot. See you there!

Fight for DACA!

September 5, 2017, 5:30pm - September 5, 2017, 8:00pm

Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions' decision to phase out DACA will only further defile the American Presidency, already marred by overt sympathies for white supremacists like Joe Arpaio. On Tuesday, September 5th, New Yorkers will take to the streets to remind this President that we will protect immigrant New York and that we are HERE TO STAY! We will gather at Foley Square at 5:30 p.m. and then march to the Brooklyn Bridge.
