Attend the Toolkit Launch event on June 14!
If you are an artist who cares about your neighborhood; a person or group dedicated to local stories and history; a public space that wants to build community…then the Community Heroes toolkit is for you!
This new and free resource helps you to organize a public art project in your community. It is an opportunity to work with your neighbors to recognize and celebrate incredible people who have strengthened and supported your community.
Come learn about it from the project co-founders and writers of the toolkit, as part of the Photoville festival!
This Community Heroes project began as a collaboration in Fort Greene, Brooklyn in 2016. Since then, it has become an annual neighborhood staple in Fort Greene Park and Commodore Barry Park. The project has also been done in Bed Stuy, Crown Heights, Red Hook and University Heights in the Bronx.
In response to many others asking to bring Community Heroes to their neighborhoods, we created a free project toolkit, so more people can create this project themselves!
The toolkit includes:
- a guide to visioning and planning your neighborhood project
- instructions, worksheets and activities to make your vision a reality
- case studies, testimonials and more.
