Round the Block: Celebrating arts and community in the Garment District
As the Garment District continues to grow as a busy and vibrant home to new arts venues and businesses, we have been eager to find ways to connect more with our neighbors. So, we are jumping with a new event designed to build connections and create community through experiencing art in our neighborhood.
Round the Block! is a promenade-style performance event where audiences travel around the Garment District to see short pieces of music, theater, and visual art. Round the Block! is a chance to gather together, to get to know each other as neighbors, and to make a place for ourselves in our growing neighborhood.
The first Round the Block! will be held FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13. Audiences will start the journey on a rolling basis, with entry times at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00 and 6:30 PM.
Bring a warm jacket and walking shoes!
Partner venues for Round the Block! include:
Chashama supports artists by partnering with property owners to transform unused real estate into space to create and present, and provides free art classes for under-resourced communities. Hector Canonge will perform “Smoke Gets in the Eyes,” as an extension of the Progressive Transition performance series, supported by a NYSCA grant.
