Garbagia: Hallucination Station
Sunday, September 22, 2019 from 2:00 – 6:00 pm
at: El Jardin del Paraíso Garden, Lower East Side, NY
Garbagia Projects is on its fourth cycle and every year it keeps expanding its reach. This year, Garbagia: Hallucination Station explores re-envisioning of a new world and continues to address topics of climate change, sustainability of our planet and reducing and reusing our waste as a beloved material and resource. Hallucination Station will be this year’s platform to portray this vision of the future and showcase its possibilities. Time is running out… How can we change our destructive ways?
Garbagia Project is Loisaida Center’s annual Summer Program based on a series of free, open community art and puppetry workshops with a focus on creating works with materials while creating a story working on present issues related to ecological topics, community and nature/urban resources, understanding trash as a treasure for the development of a sustainable life and protecting the world.
For the first time, Garbagia’s Upcycled & 2nd Hand Fair and Garbagia’s Art Auction will be presented during Lower East Side Community Festival: LUNGS Harvest Fest.
This program is funded by the New York City Council’s Cultural Immigrant Initiative, in partnership with the New York City’s Department of Cultural Affairs, Loisaida United Gardens and El Jardín del Paraíso Community Garden. Cover Art by: Patricio O’Hea
