Communal Spaces | An Outdoor Festival

Communal Spaces Festival

BQLT has partnered with The Motor Company to bring you their annual outdoor theater festival 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.
The story to be told is of the neighborhood and its people, so if you live around one of these gardens and want to participate or get involved, please reach out to Lillian Meredith at lillian@themotorcompanynyc.com ASAP.

The festival is expected to take place over the last three weekends in September:
Sat/Sun, September 14-15, 2019
