NO LONGER INVISIBLE: A VIGIL AND GATHERING TO HEAL OUR COMMUNITIES
Sunday, April 11, 2021 – 1:00pm to 4:00pm at Bowne Playground
————————

Please join us for a multi-racial vigil and community gathering grounded in art, healing and solidarity for the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in the wake of anti-Asian violence. No Longer Invisible is led and designed by Asian American women, creatives, grassroots, and community organizations doing direct work in Queens and NYC. Join us to grieve, heal and honor our heritage in Flushing – a community that has been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and by anti-Asian violence this year, and yet has received little support and attention.

No Longer Invisible is presented by OCA-NY, MinKwon Center for Community Action (Year of Uncertainty Community Partner), Blasian March, Queens Museum, Wide Awakes, For Freedoms, Caribbean Equality Project (Year of Uncertainty Community Partner), and Queens Public Library.

Celebre con nosotrxs una vigilia y reunión comunitaria basada en el arte, la sanación y la solidaridad con la comunidad de origen asiático e isleñxs del Pacífico (AAPI) ante la violencia contra lxs asiáticxs. No Longer Invisible es una iniciativa organizada y diseñada por mujeres estadounidenses de ascendencia asiática, creadorxs y organizaciones de base y comunitarias que llevan a cabo una labor directa en Queens y en NYC. Únase a nosotrxs para llorar, sanar y rendir homenaje a nuestro patrimonio cultural en Flushing, una comunidad que este año se ha visto afectada de forma desproporcionada por la pandemia y por la violencia anti-asiática, y que a pesar de esto no ha recibido apenas apoyo ni atención.

No Longer Invisible («Ya no somos invisibles») está presentado por OCA-NY, MinKwon Center for Community Action (socio comunitario de Year of Uncertainty), Blasian March, Queens Museum, Wide Awakes, For Freedoms, Caribbean Equality Project (socio comunitario de Year of Uncertainty), y la biblioteca pública de Queens.

As part of No Longer Invisible, artist duo Jaclyn Reyes and Xenia Diente of Little Manila Queens Bayanihan Arts will lead a collective banner-making project over the course of two days. Centered around the concept of “We Belong,” this banner invites multi-lingual participation and takes inspiration from the rich culture of hand-painted and highly vibrant signs in the neighborhood of Flushing.

KIND-ER GARDEN AT HOME 2021: PREPARING FOR THE GROWING SEASON
Tuesday, April 13, 2021 – 6:30pm to 8:00pm

————————

We are celebrating this new growing season with the collaborative initiative Kind-er Garden at Home. Last year we distributed plants and growing containers to 80 families, offered Spanish-language tutorial videos on how to transplant the seedlings, and documented how each family cared for their plants. This year, Kind-er Garden At Home continues with tutorials on how to sow plants from seeds at home. The first will be hosted by Claudia Urdanivia on April 13 via Facebook Live.

Celebramos esta nueva temporada de cultivo con la iniciativa colaborativa Kind-er Garden at Home. El año pasado distribuimos plantas y recipientes de cultivo a 80 familias, ofrecimos vídeos tutoriales en español sobre cómo transplantar los semilleros y registramos cómo se encargaba cada familia de sus plantas. Este año, Kind-er Garden At Home continúa con nuevos tutoriales sobre cómo cultivar plantas en casa desde que se planta la semilla. El primero lo presentará Claudia Urdanivia el 13 de abril en Facebook Live.

BEFORE RIDGEWOOD RESERVOIR: A TALK BY DR. ERIC SANDERSON
Presented as part of NYC H20’s Ridgewood Reservoir for the 21st Century
Friday, April 16, 2021 – 6:00pm to 7:30pm – Zoom

————————

Many people have heard the history of how the Ridgewood Reservoir was built as a part of the Brooklyn Water System, and many may not know that its success depended on its elevation on the terminal moraine left behind by the Wisconsin glacier. In this deep history of the site, Dr. Eric Sanderson of the Welikia Project will suggest the Wisconsin glaciation is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the long and fascinating history of this site.

Muchxs habrán oído la historia de cómo se construyó el embalse Ridgewood como parte del sistema de abastecimiento de agua de Brooklyn, así como muchxs saben que su éxito se debía a la elevación en la morrena terminal que dejó el glaciar de Wisconsin. El Dr. Eric Sanderson, del proyecto Welikia, sugiere en esta historia en profundidad del lugar que la glaciación de Wisonsin no es más que la punta del iceberg que constituye su la larga y fascinante historia.
