As the city reopens, to kick-off an amazing summer ahead, Immigrants Are US: The (G)eneration Project, A Public Art Campaign invites you to connect and re-engage with our neighbors. (G) Project Pop-In events are popping up on Staten Island at the Figment Festival, the Night Market in Queens, and ArtCrawl Harlem's Open Studios on Governors Island for three Saturdays in June during Immigrant Heritage Month. "What's Your (G) Status" proposes that we are all immigrants from different generations: G-0 born elsewhere, G-1 first generation born here and so on. At (G) Pop-Ins adults and children are invited to engage in storytelling about their immigration status and experience - either as a new immigrant to the U.S. or through their family history. Through the process, participants explore our common truth as Americans: that we are ALL immigrants and are transformed into creators, storytellers, and ambassadors for our mission.
Participants create an impromptu artwork on a (G) Project-designed card that they hang in our (G) Pop In Gallery, record a video to share their stories and pose for a portrait. Videos are presented with permission as part of a series through our social media. For more information visit http://www.gproject.org
Enjoy A Summer Adventure to find out "What's Your (G) Status?"
