Upcycle (Comm) Unity workshops at Jacob A .Riis Settlement Houses
The Blue Bus Project (TBBP) will be transformed into an artistic waste collection vehicle for the Upcycle (Comm) Unity workshops, a series of 8 hands-on creative workshops, geared towards children and seniors of the Jacob A .Riis Settlement Houses that focus on promoting environmental awareness by collecting unwanted materials from the community to be reused as creative elements.
The workshops will be used to broaden the ability to value discarded object while cultivating self-worth, self-expression and creativity.
This project is made possible by the 2020 Queens Art Fund - Community Art Grant from the Queens Council on the Arts
