Communal Spaces Festival
BQLT has partnered with The Motor Company and OPEN – ODA’s Public Engagement in Neighborhoods – to bring you The Motor Company’s 9th annual outdoor theater festival, Communal Spaces, to five of our community gardens. These festival performances focus on, are directly influenced by and respond to the communities and spaces they are in so they are unique to each community garden and the people that are there.
update: partnered artists available for view.
The festival is expected to take place over the last three weekends in September:
Sat/Sun, September 14-15, 2019
Sat/Sun, September 21-22, 2019

It is encouraged that people bring bikes or other transportation to view all five, however, it is not mandatory. The festival aims to take course over the final three weekends in September, and will begin in Williamsburg and end in Bushwick, with each performance running for an estimated 30-45 min. Please see above for full schedule of performances (schedule is the same for each day).
